Silvadene

Post by River on Thu 22 Feb 2018, 12:09 pm

Graham had her follow-up appointment today. They said her face looked nice, though her back is still bad, and she's very nauseous and likely in pain. Poor thing has drool all over her chin from the nausea, but apparently, it happens with Metacam sometimes and she should be just fine.

We still have enough Metacam for a few days, but they gave us Silvadene instead -- they said it's safe to ingest and should relieve the pain with less risk of nausea.

We also got her nails trimmed and will be switching back to her old food brand when we can to see if it helps a bit. Otherwise, they don't know what it is. The infection is gone, no mites seem to be present, and so on. It's probably just irritating her and causing over grooming at this point.

I have a good feeling about this silvadene, though! She scratched the whole appointment, but stopped when they put it on almost immediately. She hasn't been squeaking when she does scratch either. However, I'm just curious, does anyone have any experience with this? Any tips?

Thank you! This stuff really speeds healing. She has a while before her hair comes back, but she's got most of her skin and the worst of the wound has formed what seems like a yellow scab today with the new treatment, so new tissue is healing. So happy, it was an open wound this morning. She is in less pain but she hates it, tries to 'popcorn' it off at first. Seems to be less nauseous already but we'll see.

Thanks! Still healing great. Scabbed over still today, so it's just waiting for more healing now. But so far, it's been working miracles.

Her chin is still kind of wet. She has a tiny scrape on it and she has been scratching it...not sure if that's her trying to unmat it or what. Should I put some silvadene down there or wipe it of with a wetwipe or something? Since I gave her a pedicure I think she might need a little help cleaning that chin up!

I think it would be safe to try to get a little silvadene on that spot too.

I put a little bit there yesterday, or what she would let me anyway.

I love this stuff. She still scratches sometimes, but that's a given. Today is the first day I've seen her play without scratching every 2 seconds...and that's before she got her morning dose! She was building quite the nest. So happy to see she's finally comfortable enough to do her favorite things.

I've encountered a problem. Graham is getting some hair back now, though she's still scratching some smaller areas, it isn't too seriously worrying and she is improving.

However...she now knows how to get away from the medicine. She somehow wiggles out of my mouse holding hand, wipes it on my hands, in the process rubbing whatever was on the wound into the surrounding fur in one swift movement, and jets up my arm.

I have no idea how to combat this, but anyways. The wound doesn't have a white layer of cream on it to protect from scratching. Its more like a thin clearish layer because of this wiggling. I fear it might not work as well...will she rub it in right when she cleans? Is this okay?

Do the best you can, some is always better than none. And yes, wiping it off will actually help rub it in! How long are you supposed to use the cream? I imagine once the hair starts growing back, there isn't much need for it.

Thank you! We have to use it until all of its healed up. She has hair on one side of the wound, but is still bald with some gashes on the right side, with a scrape on her chin still, though its no longer matted and she seems to be leaving that alone now.

She leaped out of my hands while I was medicating her today! I was sitting on the bed so the drop wasn't too big. Landed between the bed and the dresser, perfectly fine it seems.
Took a jog on her wheel as soon as she got back in the cage. Terrifying moment though!

Didnt keep her from resisting the rest of the medicine, though. Go figure.
