Not a good weekend so far

My precious kitty Loudmouth has an abscess on her right cheek. Poor kitty! We are treating it with peroxide and neosporin, and trying to locate some antibiotic of her. With Jamie working sporatically, a visit to the vet is not possible right now, so I called my pal Heather who co-owned a vet clinic in California with her husband. She dropped by to look at Loudmouth last night and recommended using Amoxicillin. You can buy Amoxicillin over the counter for fish, under the name Fish Mox or Aquaticure. It is 250mg capsules and she needs two a day.

I have been on the phone all morning trying to locate the medicine, and no one in Savannah sells this stuff. How annoying! I can order through, but it will be a week getting here. Mental note to self: as mom to 3 cats, order some to have on hand.

I just got a call from Stephanie, she may have a lead....I will keep you posted!
