From bad to worse

Here's Waldo now (I'm not putting the picture here, just a link. Because the picture is kind of disturbing, and not everyone likes looking at illness unless they have to.) This was taken last night after a soap and water bath. The pus had built up so much on his back that we washed it off. But then he was bleeding afterwards for about 45 minutes or so, because his skin is so thin.

I'm starting Waldo on a fish oil supplement, and possibly Vitamin C, as well. He's also on Ivomex and an antibiotic. The skin is so raw because he kept licking and biting, which is why I'm pretty sure it spread so quickly. The secondary infection is pretty nasty.

Thankfully Gus seems to be okay still. Of course we're hyper-sensitive to any biting or scratching he is doing, so we'll probably give him a medicated bath tonight, just in case.

Sadly, we're missing the Santa photo shoot tonight. I don't think I can take Waldo out. People might think I'm abusive and set the Humane society on me. :(
