cry cry cry The cyst/abscess on Nickys nose is starting to come back again! I noticed that his nose was slightly swelled yesterday. Not much & not even a bump yet but I could tell it was starting in. I called my vets office & got an appointment for Nick this morning. This morning you could see where it was starting to form into a lump rather than just a general swelling so my vet would be able to tell more easily where it was.
Anyway I got to the vets office & ended up having to wait for over an hour due to a surgical emergency. Then Dr Kaiser came in. He checked out Nickys nose & pressed around on it to try to determine where it was the most swelled & if it was a hard lump or soft swelling. Since it was soft he decided to asparate it with a needle so he could culture whatever fluid was causing it to swell.
Nicky just sat there while he tried....not a peep out of him. Unfortunately we weren't able to get any fluid out even tho Dr Kaiser tried with 2 different size needles. He said that he believed the tissue around the area wa saturated....like a sponge. The next thing was to take an x-ray of Nicky's head so he could see if he could find the point of the infection. Luckily Nicky was cooperative & didn't need sedated for this. They were able to hold Nicky in place & he stayed still enough for them to take the necessary x-rays. Now I just need to wait for the results
Since they know I work nights & it was WAY past my bedtime they went ahead & sent me home rather than having me wait while they processed the films. I should know tomorrow tho what the results were.
Anyway my poor baby....he was so good & put up with so much....not a fuss or crab out of him except for his initial crab to say hello to Dr K. But I need a hug.

Nicky's nose is still swelled today. He is taking his meds but is not happy about it. Unfortunately I didn't hear from my vet tant He was supposed to update me & didn't call. I suppose that no news is good news but I had hoped to hear somehting about my boy.

I tried telling him that Suz....he just laughs at me & spits them back out. Not so much with the Flagyl that he's on now because he doesn't have to take as much of it, but he's still not a happy camper about getting something stuffed in his mouth & put on his nose back to back.

Don't feel too bad, Chris-most of mine do the same thing! (and you swear they're in their pouch afterward going "hee, hee, hee!-while you want to pull your hair out) tounge

I also suggested Chris ask her vet if maintenance meds might be an option for Nicky (like we did with Riker with his recurrent infections)...3 weeks off, 1 week on for a few months or so once this flare up is cleared. It worked for Riker, for the first time in his life he hasn't had to be on antibiotics for several months now-he was on them for the better part of 3 1/2 years...HLP, UTI, SM, UTI, and then several jaw/head infections in succession (or one that never quite cleared).

Riker's infections were diffused in the tissue also, so we couldn't get a sample.

Big hug2 coming your way, Chris. Poor little Nicky. frown He's such a good boy to pose for his x-rays and let the vet prod and poke him. heart Too bad they can't understand that the meds will make them feel better. With my three, it never fails that the one who has to take the meds does the head snub and grimace while the other two want to eagerly lick the syringe. They'll even grab it like it's a giant mealie. Then, when the tables turn and one of them has to take the meds, guess whose head is jerking away from the syringe? shakehead

I hope your vet gets back to you soon, and with good news. hug2

Well I have some good news about Nicky's nose. When I went to give him his meds before heading into work the swelling was GONE! I guess it oozed out where it was punctured when Dr Kaiser tried to asperate it. Keep your fingers crossed that it stays gone this time.

BTW....still no word on his X-Rays. Apparently Dr K had to be away from the office the last few days.

I'm glad the swelling is down, but I'm sure you'd like to know what the X-Rays show. Hope the doc gets back to you soon.

Sorry......Still haven't heard from the vet but they are swamped this week. I called to see if I could get one of my other gliders appointments moved up & was told there were no openings until NEXT week which is after her current appointment. Anyway, Nicky is doing great! The swelling on his nose had totally vanished on Sunday. The only thing left to show it was ever there was a small scratch on his nose which is rapidly healing. Keep your fingers crossed that it is gone for good this time. & I will update everyone after I talk to my vet on Friday.

OK, I talked to the vet today about Nicky's X-Rays. They were perfectly normal. No signs of infection in his bones or teeth. So that's good. Dr Kaiser believes that Nicky has a cyst that just keeps flaring up at intervals. He said he could go in & "scoop" it out, but it was in a touchy area to do that. Our other option is just to treat it as it occures so long as it isn't a constant problem or gets larger.

For now, Nickers is doing well, his nose has totally healed & he's as onrey as ever. He also said that any mealies anyone wanted to contribute to his get well fund were welcome. I tried to tell him they couldn't be mailed in envelopes, but he didn't believe me. laugh
