A Christmas (Good News) Story

December 22, 2017 | by kate.allen@hooknortonvets.co.uk | Pets

We love a good news story at HNVG and this is certainly one of the best…

Treacle came to see Small Animal Vet Will Oldham with an abscess on her head. Will lanced the abscess and started Treacle on some antibiotics – standard treatment for this kind of problem. Unfortunately the next day a large amount of skin sloughed off leaving a big hole on the top of Treacles’ head. Her owner brought her back in to see Small Animal Vet Katie McCreary. Katie cleaned and debrided the wound but she had to find a way to protect it while it healed. Head bandages are difficult to keep on so Katie placed some loops of suture material into the skin around the wound to allow a swab to be easily and painlessly changed on a regular basis. Over the next 2 weeks the wound shrank and we are pleased to report Treacle has made a full recovery! You can see the different stages of healing in the pictures below.

It is amazing how the body heals. Treacle will be having a healthy and happy Christmas since being treated at HNVG!
