ok, he's pissed but will be getting better quicker. The vet kept him most of the day. Sedated him....cut his head open more to drain...

me too. a week of forced draining and a 170.00 vet visit.....the little cut between his eyes is the one the vet did. The one further back was the original. it had just healed too much for the infection to get out.

He is better now. Still a little swelling where they made the new incision, but the antibiotics are working. It's fun to watch when you rub his little bald spots, his head starts twitching like he's spasming! Even when you stop, his head just keeps going, like Rainman!

He is STILL a little freakin swelled! I can't keep it open anymore without going back to the vet for more sedation. I'm hoping the anti biotics are still going.
