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.
