Bandit Had a Rough Day
Bandit has bacterial dermatitis - a skin infection. The vet came to the house yesterday. Two-hundred sixty dollars later they left with a shaved Bandit, a slew of antibiotics, antihistamines (for the scratching), some shampoo and cream. Thank God I have the pet insurance but I don't know how they'll pay. That was only half the fun.
Apparently, he also had impacted anal sacs. You can learn all you ever wanted to know about a dog's anal glands by clicking here. I'd rather not get into the details other than to say Bandit is definitely not a bottom. He didn't enjoy the extraction process.
