Antibiotic Treatments: Complete!

Since Jackie’s abscess was extremely nasty it needed to be treated with an equally nasty antibiotic.  For a week Jack went to French Creek for daily injections.  These injections, however, were not as simple as a needle prick.

Jack was prescribed Amikacin.  It is used cautiously as it can cause kidney damage.  To mitigate any unwanted side effects,  Jackie received half a bag of fluid subcutaneously before getting his shot.  Although he looked a bit like a lopsided camel when he was done, it didn’t seem to bother him too much.  That being said, he was very excited to go home. 🙂
