I received a call from Jackie’s surgeon, Dr. Schwab. The results from the abscess biopsy were in. I was told it contained the canine equivalent of MRSA. He was confident none of the infectious material made it into his body, however, he wanted to be safe since it’s highly resistant to most antibiotics. Jack started an injectable antibiotic. He will need 1 injection everyday for the next week.
Jackie just can’t seem to catch a break these days.
