Went to the vet with DJ for the check up after the abscess. He was due back tomorrow but I rang yesterday and brought it forward as he was still not healing up as well as expected. There was a locum vet in today in place of the girl who seen him last week,he was also very good. He emptied the rest of the gland and prescribed another week of the same antibiotic but twice the dose as it is working just not as quickly as they would like.
My usual vet was in surgery, but half way through the consult she popped in to see DJ as she had heard we were coming in and wanted to see him and ask about Gus and Pippin, so nice of her but proof we are there too much lately...(heard we were coming in)
Dj does not have to go back if the abscess continues to clear up if not then back again next week(hopefully not), but is back for annual check-up next month anyway so will have his glands checked then again.
My heart jumped when I spotted your post I so hope thats the end of visits for you all you have had more than
your share .

(except for GUS' monthly visits and going to collect monthly meds for Pippin, guess that's what happens when you have three seniors!) and we will have no more unexpected visits...
Sorry to hear that it's taking a while to clear up hopefully the extra antibiotics will help.
Yes paws crossed you will keep away form the door for a bit, but your vet sounds lovely
Kitty, need to moisten the bran with some water otherwise it goes everywhere...you will still be combing it out of their ears months later!!
Glad things are looking up though taking a little longer than expected. Fingers crossed for no more unexpected visits.
