A new challenge!
Charlie has had a little sore on his breast, likely a nip from Lucy in one of her fits of meanness, that hasn't healed.
The vet yesterday removed the scab, swabbed it with like-Betadine, applied a salve, and injected an antibiotic.
She sent me home with a bottle of like-Betadine, a tube of salve, and two weeks' worth of oral antibiotic.
Charlie is a willful and strong little critter with a formidable beak. How will we get this all done?
Being a "sweet birdie boy" doesn't necessarily extend to cooperation in this scenario.
