Well we got X-Rays Wednesday night, and there is a part of the bone not showing up - not broken, just gone. At first the vet was afraid it was a tumor, which of course would require amputation. They sent the X-Rays to the "experts", and their opinion was that he has septic arthritis with adjacent osteomyelitis. Again, my little Crimson is only 2. So I was given more antibiotics, and will have a follow up next week.
Does anyone have experience with septic arthritis or anything similar? If I can find a way to post a picture, I will do so. I'm happy that his toe doesn't have to be amputated, but my anxiety is still high thinking about "what if it IS a tumor?"
