I posted a couple of weeks ago and mentioned that Biscay had an abscess on his jaw which we were treating. It seemed to be going well, and by last weekend was much smaller, so we were hopeful that it was just an abscess and not a sign of something more sinister.

Unfortunately we were wrong. During Monday night and Tuesday he deteriorated and stopped even trying to eat or drink. The vet gave him subcutaneous fluids on Tuesday and we kept trying, but by Wednesday morning it was apparent that something was pushing his mouth out of whack – his tongue was being forced out of the right side of his mouth and he couldn’t lap anything.

So on Wednesday he made his final vet visit. He was a brave boy throughout the illness (despite the regular protesting squeaks when we were cleaning his abscess) and his ladies are missing him very much. As are we.

  1. Sorry to hear it. Capped and hoodies have a special place in my heart. I had my rex dalmation boy aided to the bridge not long ago due to a heart issue. It is never easy.

    Oh, I am so very sorry. I lost a ratty friend the same way. What a handsome fellow Biscay was.
