The vet wants to amputate Juno's tail.
Her exploded cyst is not getting better. We were sent home with anti-biotics, and trimmed fur around the area on her tail. He reassures me it will bother US more than it does her, and it will prevent it from getting worse. I had been putting some topical antiobiotic cream on it, and he said to keep doing that, after cleaning it with hydrogen pyroxide, if only to prevent her from licking it.
If the anti-biotics don't get rid of the infection, off it goes! Day surgery. I asked him how much it would cost, with him bearing in mind that she IS 15 years old, and we JUST adopted a daughter. he said not to worry, it will be under 300.00.
At least it appears (I don't want to jinx it) that Malka's finger is, if not greatly improving, at least NOT getting worse (knock wood, spit spit).
Think good thoughts for the June-bug, k? I have pictures of her infected tail, but will only send via e-mail if anyone is curious. It's not too bad, but it is kinda yucky looking.
