Ok, so I go home at lunch and Max comes in the house. I go to the bathroom and he jumps up on the back of the toilet. I turn to pet him and notice he has a lump the size of a mouse ball on his ear! Itâ€™s scabbed over and when I go to touch it, the dang thing oozes this putrid looking bloody goo!!! So I flip! I start squeezing this thing to try and clean it out and thereâ€™s just no end! I finally get it partially cleaned out a notice thereâ€™s a hole about the diameter of a pen!! First thought, OMG, somebodyâ€™s shot my cat! So, I call work and tell them I going to be late b/c Max needs to go to the vet! Well, my vet is closed today, so I had to take him to another guy over by work, whoâ€™s really nice BTW. He looks at him and says that he probably got in a fight or something and punctured that ear and itâ€™s abscessedâ€¦ So, now Max is on house arrest until this thing clears up, I have to give him Clavamox every 12 hours and I have to squeeze this thing out ever so often to keep it from getting any worse. Doc said that if it gets worse or if itâ€™s not getting better by the time the meds are done to bring him back, and heâ€™ll see him again free of charge!
