Frankie had a not so suave Monday, though things certainly turned out much better than we first feared. Details in today’s story.
Frankie has long had a fatty mass on his side which didn’t concern anyone much. We had even had it tested for the Big C just to be sure, but the results were fine.
Sunday evening, it swelled and became very irritated. A trip to the vet revealed an infection. The area needed to be shaved, drained (and no one wants to see pictures of that—trust us), cleaned, and treated. The doc prescribed antibiotics and the dreaded cone of shame. Hu-Dad promises that this cone is much more comfortable than the old-fashion kind.
Once the infection is controlled (in about two weeks), more tests will rule out the Big C, but the vet felt fairly confident that we don’t need to worry about that. We will all breathe a sigh of relief when we know for sure.
As for the not-so-suave look Frankie is giving, he says the hot and humid weather is bad enough, but having to wear a life vest is just a wee bit much. Fortunately, like most things, Frankie just accepts it and moves on. Well, except for the occasional dirty look shot in Hu-Dad’s direction.
