Poor Brutus

Mr. Beefcake hadn’t been acting quite himself lately.

He was spending an inordinate amount of time on his heat pad in his house in the garage.

I just figured he was being smart and staying warm, but Mr. C came into the house during the big snowstorm the other night and said he had a nasty wound on his shoulder. When I saw it I knew right away that an abscess had burst… oh the SMELL!

I usually can handle cleaning up and tending to the average abscess, but this one had grown into his body instead of swelling outward so it went undetected and it was huge.

Surgical intervention was necessary.


He is now ensconced in Mr. C’s office until he heals up.

Poor Brutus Beefcake.

    It may have grown inward but it’s a good thing that it burst outward. You are a wonderful “Vet” and I’m sure he’ll do well.

    Poor BBBB!!!!! Another scar for his collection! NEVER a dull moment over there Nurse Schmenkman!
    Our cat Muff had a similar operation when I was a kid, drain and all. Badge of honor for scrappy cats!
