Teddy the Saga Continues

Poor Teddy Boy.  His neck problem has worsened again.  Suddenly on Sunday, always on a Sunday, his neck began swelling up.  I noticed that the hole the vet made to drain out the infection, started closing on Saturday.  This was not a good thing Martha. Sunday afternoon, his neck problem area was the size of a walnut shell.  I gave him a good cleaning with peroxide as per our normal routine and decided to wait until Monday morning to call the doctor then....more
