Odin Update

Odin’s treatment is going well, his wounds are washed twice a day with an antibacterial wash, and cream applied to aid healing.

He tolerates the washes etc very well, and seems to look forwards to them, even though he is still losing clumps of skin with spines on. He is quite active, eats and drinks well, and is gaining weight, which is all good. His toilet is normal too.

You can see the pain in his eyes, and I imagine his wounds must be sore to say the least.

He is a little trooper, and we are holding out for the little fellah.
