Red Jaw

The vet has ordered a month’s course of antibiotics to cure the infection in Red’s mandible.  The abscess, which had grown to the size of a toddler’s fist, is now as large as a peach pit.

When I was at the animal hospital I met a woman who runs a mutt rescue operation. She showed me before and after photos of dogs whose previous owners had let the dogs’ diseases run amok.
