Thank you for all the suggestions regarding Pam’s treatment. Today at noon I found her above the garage with her face so swollen up she was having trouble breathing. I decided to give the pill another try – and 7 times I tried and 7 times she spit it out. Yes, I know I’m supposed to hold her mouth shut until she swallows but she was having such a hard time breathing, I was afraid. So then I decided to soak it again with hot water and peroxide which she didn’t like either but I managed. When I went back to look at her again, the abscess had burst and I called the vet to see if I could get her in this afternoon – and that is of course, IF I could get her in a carrier. Well, thankfully I did and the vet flushed the wound and gave her a 2 week antibiotic shot. It looked pretty bad in the office but I know how much better she feels now. The pressure has been relieved and she can breathe again without pain. OH MY but I am also relieved! When one of my animals is hurt or sick, I don’t feel well either! I’m looking forward to sewing in the barn tonight. Thanks, Everybody, for your concern.
