Last week, Gracie messed with the wrong snake and ended up with swelling in her leg and hip. Jeff dropped $215 at the Animal Hospital after x-rays, lancing and draining. This morning the abscess was back, filled with fluid. Jacob and I took her back to the vet where she underwent another lancing and draining. Poor Gracie.
While waiting for the doctor to come in, Jacob soothed her with the obligatory belly-rub, all the while telling her that he loved her.
The wait for the doc was very long but Gracie seemed to be enjoying the coldness of the examining room floor. Jacob was very empathetic and would not let her lie there alone. They're such good buddies.
