the unforseen conciuences of Pua's walk

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

Unfortunately her long walk had unforeseen consequences. I noticed her feet looked red on the walk back and checked them and they looked worn raw but more pink up close. So she got stuck in her bag but they didn't look to bad. She wasn't happy and clawed me through the bag. When get got home things looked worse.
She blistered and bruised her feet and both her knuckles blistered. Une knuckle is open and uncovered the other is still sealed. Her feet were popped open but not uncovered.
I would have thought she'd give some indication if her feet hurt but guess she was to excited to feel it. Will have to check her feet regularly next time.
She didn't have this problem last spring after being cooped up but in hind site she hasn't gotten to really run around since June due to all that's gone on with her.
I had to mention it since it will be visiable in pictures for awhile. It doesn't look as bad in person as in the photos somehow.

All that was blister on her foot but it's half that size today. Her other foot drained and the knuckle blister is smaller and the open knuckle not so red. There wasn't much irritated redness at all today and rubbed cream on them all even though they all seem closed except for the one knuckle. It's a good sign to her over all health now that she seems to be healing quickly from this instead of having lingering sores. She was making a point of walking in a way to keep her knuckles off the ground when she could last night so she was feeling it after the walk anyway. Didn't slow her down though she still had a good play battle with Stewie. She got a good amount of cherry baby food too, she decided she likes baby food fruits.

I've thought about booties but not sure how to work it so she'd have her claws free. My best idea for the hands would be use the bandage wrap with some gauze for padding then wean her down to bare feet again. I might be able to devise a booty for her back feet.
That was writen around noon as of now it's looking even better.

With eyes open even
Pua takes Stewie's blood pressure
Those tails come in handy
I'm at a loss for words

Brought home a nice rotten log for them from the park
I love you so much Tree
Stewie rubs on the tree to mark it as his
Living cartoons
Tamandua back ends are just like toon animals are often drawn
I caught you Pua
Lots of poking going on
This looks dirty and inappropriate
keep your hands to yourself Stewie
Stewie poses on his tree
What ya doing, Pua?
Atack through the tree roots
Anteater tail action
