I had to go to the v-e-t this morning! I don't mind GOING...it's once we GET there that I object to. The very first thing they did was stick that awful thermometer in my fuzzbutt. How humiliating! For a few days, now, I have had a bump on my fuzzbutt that was oozing blood mixed with clear liquid. Mom has been putting hot compresses on it and Neosporin, but this morning, it seemed to be even more swollen.
Off we went to see Dr. Hardee. I LOVE Dr. Hardee! He's always sooooo nice to me! Unfortunately, this time, all he wanted to look at was my fuzzbutt. It seems that I have an infection in one of my anal glands. He expressed both glands and I was a really good girl while he worked on me.
Now I have to take antibiotics twice a day for 14 days and then I have to go back to be re-checked. He felt a thickening by one of my anal glands and he wants to make sure it isn't something more serious...like a tumor! The whole thing isn't bothering me, one bit, but my mom was kind of freaking out! I told her to chill out...I'm still eating, doing zoomies and playing bitey-face. I told her that if I quit doing any of those things, THEN she can freak out!
Well, everybuddy, it's time for my afternoon nap. See you all next time! Happy New Y-aire!
