See this adorable face? This is my precious Ali Carrie. She is our furry child and is 4 1/2 years old.
Ali loves to sleep under our bed, play tug of war with her sock, and eat treats.
Anyone who has ever met Ali Carrie will agree she is very very sweet and adorable.
This is a silly picture of Ali Carrie, taken one afternoon during one of her snoozes on the couch. How could you not love a face like this?
I chuckle every time I see this picture of her.
Today, I was petting my little AC and giving a good rub when I felt something... strange...
THIS IS WHAT I FOUND!
I called the vet and took her in for an emergency visit. At first, they told me it was probably just a "wolf fly" larva, imbedded in her skin.
Turns out, it is just a subcutaneous cyst that has errupted. Dr. A. said that they basically treated it like a big pimple, squeezed it out, and follow up will be a 10 day treatment of antibiotics. He also said that there is a small chance that it could re-occur. Let's hope it doesn't!
I begged them to give her a good haircut before pick up time in hopes that she will not be so hot for the remainder of the summer and to help me spot these troubling, and disgusting disturbances.
All is well though. Can't wait till be get her home, back under our bed where she loves to be!
