The Pet Vet and Nature - Maisie Wright
Maisie fell down the stairs and banged her side. She developed a small graze in the affected area but this soon started to gradually extend on the left hand side of her body which was due to a possible haematoma (a collection of blood under the skins surface).
Unfortunately her skin started to die and come away. For this sort of injury we had to scrape away the affected area under general anaesthetic and let the wound heal naturally as we were unable to stitch it back together.
During the healing process wet to dry swabs have been applied with a small amount of honey to ease the wound.
As you can see from the photo to the right Maisie’s body is doing a fantastic job in healing itself and she should be back to normal very soon!
