The little toofy-one, ZoZo, the Zoster, our Zoey ~
will need an emergency visit to the vet.
Now please don't think she's got
cavities, er catities from
munching on all the sweets that fell down from our blog header ...
... she has a large open wound on her side. Normally, Zoey would have
professional grooming about every 3-months; she has some issues with her
skin and because she loves getting in the shower, the tub, the sink ...
tends to develop serious mats. Unfortunately, we missed regular grooming
a few months ago because of family issues. Now I fear this wound has come
about because of a close-to-the-skin mat that perhaps she has dug into.
It is raw and in danger of infection. Last evening, she allowed us to clean the
area slightly ... but a vet visit is definitely needed for her.
Today, we must go to Orlando for the day, for Poppy Vic's chemotherapy
treatment, so it's unlikely I can get her to the vet today. If she is worse when
we get home, then I may have to consider the emergency clinic, but prefer
not to go there. Any vet visit at this time, will be hard to handle, especially if
they need to anesthetize her to shave her or treat the wound. I have placed
a Chip-In tag at the top of the sidebar for any who can help us at this time.
