|His face is swollen and infected|
|He was not being cooperative|
|This is as far as he got on my first attempt|
The vet's assistant carried him from my car to the clinic for about a block. They have a very busy practice and parking is scarce. The vet told me that it was a good thing I brought him in because he was not doing well and the infection on his face had taken a toll on him. He immediately injected him two antibiotics and another shot for the inflammation.
I was told that it would be in his best interest to have him spend the night, let the medication they administered a chance to work and tomorrow they would remove the quills.
I felt bad leaving him in an unfamiliar environment but had to remind myself that it was for his own well-being. So, my friends, Oscar is resting this evening in an Animal Clinic in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico.
It all went well as there was hardly any traffic to cross into Mexico or the USA on both trips. Mexican customs did not even inquire about him.
Tomorrow I have to repeat the procedure with Tammie. She is a bit more problematic given she does not like to have a human touch her. I just hope she does not bite me!
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
