another trip to the vet

dad is sad as am i because i have to take another trip to the vet this morning. what started out as a small infection from flea bites (which is strange to have fleas in december right?) has bloomed into a full blown skin infection. i've been cleaning it a lot and maybe too much dad thinks. the fur around the one spot is all gone and i have quite a bit of swelling around the area and dad says might be a lymph node is quite swollen ( i don't know what those things are). anyway, it means more antibiotics to combat this and dad and i both don't like that because it hurts when they give me the shot. :( well i'll write more later. i do hope everyone is doing well and having a better time so far than i am.

i'll keep up-to-date with this.

love from mexico.

well to follow-up we just got back from the vet. he gave her three shots all together (1 antibiotic, 1anti-inflammatory the other one i don't remember). of course like always she is beat down from all the medicine and is laying semi comfortably on the sofa and licking her wounds. we have to go back tomorrow for a follow-up shot. what had been small sores from her allergy to fleas turned into full blown open wounds from her constant licking. she was swollen in and around the sores and while her overall disposition was good she was not up to par obviously. she also has a five day run of amoxicillian. thanks for the thoughts and well wishes.
