Rattles’ Paw

Rattles’ right paw has a bad infection from being caught in a trap for 3 days. If all goes well, he won’t need two of his toes amputated. Medication for the infection is antirobe 150mg, 2 caps 2 times a day for 10 days, as well as rimadyl, 50mg 2 times a day for 7 days. The vet said he’s worried about bone infection, and that Rattles has a crushed bone injury. We need to walk him and pinch his toes so that he doesn’t loose sensation in them.

Below are photos of his foot, 8 days after he was caught in the trap; 4 days after I initially took him to the vet. The first pic is of one of his injured toes, the second is a close up of the same injured toe. The third pic is of his second injured toe, and the last pic is a close up of the same injured toe.
