|Mommy, can we please get out of here?|
Last Thursday Diamond was caught doing a lot of licking on his left front leg. So much, in fact, that he had licked some fur right off of his leg. He was also favoring the leg. This bought him a trip to the Vet on Friday. Diamond does not go to the same Vet that we do, he sees Dr. Babbit. Diamond does not mind going to the Vet until he remembers that's where he gets his claws clipped. Lemme' tell you kitties, Diamond does not like to get his claws clipped. Ever. At all. He gets pretty stressed and wants to climb on Mommy's lap. Good times kitties, good times...
Anyway, Diamond was examined and they checked his bones - nothing wrong there. Then Dr. Babbit did a skin culture and found out that Diamond has an infection in his Boo Boo. She thinks that's what is causing Diamond to lick and favor his leg. She thinks a bug might have bit him. So now Diamond is on antibiotics and has to have goop spread on his Boo Boo. Dr. Babbit says it may take a few weeks or more before we see progress. Diamond does not mind taking his pills, but is not fond of the goop. Three times a day Daddy has to put it on his leg. Daddy is not fond of doing this because Diamond does not like it.
But you know what the worst part was? He still had to get his nails clipped! Talk about insult to injury!
