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. 🙂
