Yesterday 3 piggies were scheduled to see the vet. Two of them should have had also some minor surgery. But it’s summer and computers and humans go crazy so our vet’s agenda was messed up and only Archy got to be “solved”.
So, Archy had a check up to make sure he is healthy and fit. He got the clean bill.
Apparently he had pododermatitis but everything looks fine now. How he got this diagnosis? Well, he had some “dry skin” hanging from his paws. Ms M cut this and it never came back. The vet said it was for sure pododermatitis and showed some leftover scars. Small pieces, but still there to prove the diagnosis. According to her, moving him on a VetBed was the best thing to do and due to that he is now almost pododermatitis free.
We will come back with another post on our experience with pododermatitis.
Meanwhile, this is Archy and his busy, Kirk, enjoying breakfast.
