Sammy, my ouside mouser, had an abscess on his chest. I was able to colloborate with the doctor on the best and least invasive treatment. The doctor was present for consultation and open to options. We chose to aspirate to determine whether the lump was infact an abscess and not a tumor, and then follow up with a long-acting antibiotic injection, in addition to his boosters. Sammy is happy and doing great! Me too!
