While our Q-Tip is deep in a peanut butter trance, we will explain things. Our Q has always strived for uniqueness, and that includes mysterious ailments. When he first came to Chez Herd, he had a weird Urinary Tract Infection that most common antibiotics would not touch.

We will be applying some topical medications – directly to the skin now that it is exposed – for the next couple of weeks.
