Thread: Abscess Surgery - Keeping Bond Intact

    Default Abscess Surgery - Keeping Bond Intact

    Unfortunately, Leroy's leg abscess has returned. It is smaller and has not burst - he is back on abx. We have made the decision to have it surgically removed. I spoke to the tech about his newly bonded mate and possibly bringing her along, but it was requested that I not do that.

    So, is there a way to minimize the possibility of breaking a rather newly formed bond? He will go in early tomorrow morning and should be back home later in the day.

    Thanks!

    They are happy together. I put them both in a cage for the ride up/back to the vet. She did not go in the office with him, but waited in the cage till he came back out. No problems.

    The vet said she got as much of the infection as she could but recurrence remains possible. He's still on an antibiotic. There's nothing more to be done.

    It is open again in the place where the vet cleaned out and stitched up. He seems happy enough but we can't go on like this.
