We have a TWH that was bitten in the face 3 years ago by a rattlesnake. He laid flat on his side for almost 2 weeks (we went out every few hours to help him up so he could drink, eat, and relieve himself, but he'd go right back down as soon as we left). At the time, our main concern was just trying to get him to survive! He fully recovered in about 2 months, but has a spot on his hip that WILL NOT grow hair back. The vet says it never will, and told me to keep it moist (I've been putting lotion, petroleum jelly, Corona, and everything else I can think of on it every day). Does anyone have ANY other ideas? I am willing to try anything! Since it IS scar tissue, I'm afraid it's hopeless, but a friend wants to borrow him, and I know he's not going to go to the trouble of putting anything on him every day. Last winter I went 10 days without applying anything, and it dried up and busted open! It was AWFUL!! So the vet was apparently right. 3 years of this!!!! Sorry this is so long, but wanted to disclose everything! Oh, and I tried the bacon grease thing, too!!!
