My poor baby girl Tash has a nasty large abscess at the bottom of her spine/ top of her tail 😢 Thank heavens for the lovely sitters who took her to the vet today. The vet asked if she could have been in a scrap with a cat but I’m now wondering if that pine marten did get a swipe or bite her. She’s had painkilling and antibiotic injections and is coming home with lots of antibiotics, some sort of wrap to stop her (or Tilly) getting at the wound which has been drained and the horrible cone (which I don’t think she needs). Hopefully all this will be enough to clear it up, but I hate the thought of her being poorly when I’m not there 😢😢 . There’s still a possibility it’s been caused by something more sinister (she is 13). I have to take her back as soon as I get home late next week. The sitters have been fabulous though - some I’ve had probably wouldn’t have noticed anything was wrong.
