|Following A Dream||
I was able to get little Aspie into the vet this morning. Two vets looked at him and there was much talking behind closed doors, but they agreed that he certainly has a broken jaw, and that the large lump is his bone attempting to heal. I got antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory/pain meds for him, and he will have to have his food soaked to soften it before he can eat. Jaw rest - no toys or chewing for three weeks so his jaw can heal. We have a follow up appointment for second round of vaccinations and a re-check on his jaw in two weeks. Fortunately, the vets agreed that with a few weeks of softened food and his pills, he will heal on his own. As he grows the remodeling for the bone should lessen so he will eventually take on a more normal appearance. Good news for Aspie!
