Can this kill my dog???
Desperate to save our dog!!! Help!!
Looking for advise and/or help on bacterial infections. Our dog had a common TPLO in October and contracted a bacterial infection in his surgical site, called Pseudomonas Aeruginosa. His leg was extremely concerning to us the day we arrived for discharge. So, there is no doubt, the pseudomonas was a hospital acquired infection. He's been on antibiotics for almost 2 months. Approximately 1 month after his TPLO, it was discovered that he had a fractured fibula head in the same leg and would need corrective surgery to fix. This was performed in December.

He recently began having serious kidney issues and is being treated by an internal medicine specialist. We learned this evening that his urine sample was cultured and came back positive for Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Pseudintermedius (MRSP).

Desperately searching for information on these 2 bacteria's. How, if any, do these two correlate with one another? And could the renal failure be a result from these bacteria. He currently has the plate from the TPLO and an external fixator (from the fractured fibula head) in his leg... Which are making me think are only harmful at this point. This sweet dog means soooooo much to our family and I'm afraid to not give him every opportunity possible to pull through this. But I'm very nervous this isn't going to turn out good. PLEASE HELP!!

*Also, just out of curiosity---- could the fractured fibula head have occurred during surgery?

With all due respect, there's nothing an internet forum can tell you about health prognosis of your dog. Hopefully you have a good vet and beyond that, you can only hope for a good outcome.


Good luck to you.

Exactly what I was thinking, gsdhunter. I'd go to a different vet for a second opinion.

Since you have already been the the vet and done what they have advised I will add this as a natural remedy that could not hurt to try. I have used healing clay one the years and believe in its healing ability. It certainly could not hurt. If your dog is sill on antibiotics make sure and give the clay 2 hours after the meds because it sees them as a toxin and will remove them from the system. You can use it internally and externally, you mix a paste and put on the injury.

In a study from Arizona State University, bentonite clay was found to be highly effective at killing MRSA as well as Salmonella, E.Coli and others.What is promising as research continues in this area is that depending on the method in which the clay kills the infection, it may not be possible for the MRSA or other bacteria to develop a resistance to it as it does with antibiotics.
