So Scruffy has been scratching his shoulder area a lot this past week. At first we just thought he was scratching the area we put his Frontline on so we took him to Petco to get groomed. Well aparently he had been scratching so much that it had scabbed and was starting to pus (needless to say he didn't get bathed.)
So within a half an hour we had him at the vets. Apparently it was a Hotspot (skin infection basically). Something that should have been really obvious to me but I never thought of it.
Anyway he got shaved and there are 3 spots on is shoulder. They also cleaned his ears and treated them since there had been more yeast and bacteria than the vet was comfortable with.
So poor Scruffy now has ear drops 2 times a day (that should be fun) and Clavamox (an antbiotic) for his hotspots (twice a day) and a spray (the name evades me) to help sooth the spots that he needs sprayed 2-3 times daily.
Hopefully the longest this will last is 15 days.
