Target Is Better

Target is better.  We caught the abscess so quickly, that 48 hours later there is no bump and no hot spot.

Target thinks he doesn't need his medicine but I'm continuing it just in case there is a tiny spot of infection left inside that handsome furry face.

If all is well Friday, we'll quit then.

Thanks for the purrs, everyone.  And for that amazing Pick Me Up Off The Floor After The Visit To The Vet cocktail recipe!  Meow and see you on Mystery Friday!

Gattina said...

He looks great ! yes, it's better to continue with his pills !
Rosie had an infection at her leg she had a fight with Pookie ! I had to give her the antibiotics and anti-inflamation medicine with a syringe ! She won't take any pill !

Cat with a Garden said...

Great news! And yes, that's avery handsome mancatly face.

~*Connie*~ said...

Yup, sorry Target, antibiotics are very important when you had an abscess, no matter how small. If you don't kill it all, it will come back. Many an eon ago I had a kitty who felt the need to defend his territory (he has a long story, and I totally understood) and he would come home beat up and all too often they would abscess. I also worked in a vet clinic for a while and saw abscesses that came back because all of the antibiotics weren't given because kitties thought they weren't necessary.

Chalk it up as part of your wearing that cool badge of courage!!
