Michael said he did great, even when they had to open up his abscess and squeeze it to get all the infection out. Poor baby will have to take an antibiotic twice a day for a week and we have to clean it twice a day until it closes up. Here is a picture of the area tonight after they opened it and drained it today.

This is poor pitiful Spencer tonight. He isn't feeling too good and is just lying around in his bed. My poor little baby dog had a traumatic day today. For the past few months I've noticed that he had a small knot on his back, but didn't think too much about it because he had one as a puppy and the vet said it would go away on it's own. Well, over the weekend it seemed to get much larger and last night it opened up. I see this sort of thing on adult surgery patients ALL THE TIME, but it is much different when it is your dog! So, I immediately called the vet and they could see him this afternoon.
