Hi everybody, I was wondering if anybody's dog here has had MRSA [I think it's actually MRSR with dogs]?
My boy has had elbow dysplasia and has had quite a few operations, I think 6 or 7 [too many to remember]. The last one was last thursday, when he had a metal plate and 9 screws put in to try to help an ununited cut in the ulna to heal.
The operation went well, but on sunday night the wound started bleading so I took him to see my vet on monday who took a swop. The results came back today, verdict, MRSA.
I am very very worried because he's had a lot of surgery and a lot of Abs in the past. Hopefully his body can handle one more fight.
The biggest worry is that the plate and screws will have to come out. That really would be the end
Any info would be helpful.
