Has anyone else had a reaction like this?
Lisa Frankie and Mattie
|Can't help with your question. I know humans with stomach ulcers can react to topical NSAID's, so I guess it's possible.|
Hope things settle back down for you.
|I'd ask the vet if Tritop contains a corticosteroid... it looks like it might (isoflupredone acetate). Did she continue to lick her leg after applying the ointment? Just wondering if she might have ingested it, maybe accounting for the increased drinking/peeing again.|

We always have problems when they shave down the front leg for an IV. Licking and chewing. I have to put long sleeve shirts on mine for about 7-10 days or they'll cause irritation to the area. It's often more bothersome than what they went in for!
Hoping the DHEA will help.
|Tritop does contain a corticosteroid. I have used it on Oscar, with no side effects to note, but Oscar already takes prednisone.|
Oscar also hates the IV catheter placement shave, and wants to lick and lick and lick.... Here's my solution. I take hubby's white tube socks with the longest elastic part, and cut off the foot, so you end up with a tube about 6 - 8 inches long. I take the elastic tube and put it up Oscar's leg, to cover the shaved area, like a leg warmer. Works like a charm, with very little muss or fuss. I change the tube daily, unless it gets really dirty, or wet from a trip outside, and keep it on until the hair grows back a bit. (When hubby gets a hole in his sock, I get out my scissors. I now have a pile of 6 or 7.) I also use the tubes when Oscar has a growth removed from an extremity. I just put the sock up over the bandage, to keep it clean and in place.
I hope Mattie is doing better. It certainly does sound like diabetes.

|I've done that too! I cut the toes off a few socks and used them on Bumble's elbow when he had a histiocytoma he kept licking. I put half a pad in the heel of the sock to cushion it when he laid down. How do you keep it in place? Bumble's kept sliding down. Vet wrap? Maybe I just need a snugger fitting sock.|
When I needed to do the same for Kahlua, I went to those discount stores (TJ Maxx or Marshall) to get some toddler size stockings/tight pants. They are made in cotton, stretchy and are narrower than men's tube socks, so they stay on better. I got those 3 a pack, so I got 6 tubes out of one pack
|Great idea, Gigi! |
Jaci, I've never had any trouble keeping Oscar's sock tube in place. Maybe hubby has extra elastic socks, or Oscar has super large legs!

|I have some kids knee socks but was saving the for Darby's ragweed season. |
Ok, I've got it now! I'll look for both smaller socks with lots of elastic!
