Hobo Update

No cancelled appointment for Hobo today! He had improved dramatically....just about anything would have been an improvement over the way his eye looked last week! He was almost back to normal, but he wouldn't chew. Partly that was a monster I created; Hobo really likes canned food, but he wouldn't touch kibble. So he kept his dental appointment today.

And it turned out to be a good thing...painful for both his mouth and my wallet, but a good thing anyway! Hobo had several rotten teeth, including the one suspected to have caused the original abscess. By the end of the day, Hobo was short four teeth! Hopefully, that takes care of the problem...he's running out of teeth! Fortunately, it appears that nothing worse than an infected tooth or three was causing Hobo's troubles. There was no sign of a bone issue, a tumor or other serious problem.

Hobo wanted dinner tonight, although I only gave him a tiny bit of canned food. That's much more typical of my boy...not much keeps Hobo from his dinner!
