Old Ginger has not been eating and has become very thin and also very dehydrated. Yesterday I noticed the large lump under his chin.
Took him to the vet this morning and he was put on a drip and had the abscess drained under anesthetic.
Afterwards, he drank a whole bowl full of water but didn’t touch the food. Luckily, he is easy to syringe and medicate.
At the vet I happened to meet the caregiver who had sterilised Old Ginger and also claimed him back from AVA 8 years ago. I think he must be at least 10 years old now.
Sweet little Sophia…so many regrets…I am too late to visit you today. Thankfully, Phyllis went to see you yesterday. We love you and miss you…
