Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, I can help you with your question today.
Yes, I am concerned about that lump. That is not a normal healing response after an abscess.
I'm surprised she was only on antibiotics for 3 days.
I generally keep the pet on antibiotics for about 14 days.
Right so she needs to go back to vets?
Yes, I think that's the best idea for her.
what shall i do if he says he's only going to give 3 days of antibiotics again?
I would simply request a longer course. Perhaps you could let him know you would feel more comfortable with it and that it will give you peace of mind.
Have you used this particular vet for a long time?
If not, you could mention that another pet of yours was treated for something similar with a longer course of medication.
No its the first time she's needed to go to he vets
ok thanks for the advice, i'll take her tomorrow
