In Reply to: Treating Tail Rot.. posted by MidnightFalcon on May 03, 2003 at 10:54:31:
When an uro has tailrot, you first have to change the climatic conditions. Get rid of the moist and keep it dry.
A vet has to find out if the tailrot is caused by a bacteria or if it is a fungal infection.
When he knows what it is, than you can start treating it the right way.
Remove the crusts carefully every day until you see healthy tissue.
Which medicin is used depends of what kind of infection it is. Your vet will know what to do.
It can take easily a month before the uro is better, sometimes even longer. This is also dependent of the condition in which it is.
A short on vitamin A also stimulates diseases of the skin. So a support of the treatment with vitamins (prescribed and/or given by the vet!) will help the healingprocess.
Hope this information will help...
