|Thanks once again for the continued purrs for Henry.
Mum could not get Henry an emergency vet appointment yesterday (Sunday) without having to travel too far in the car which she knew Henry wouldnt enjoy, she had to weigh up what to do for the best, leave Henry another day or make him travel further in the car, she opted to leave him for another day.
So, Mum has just returned from taking him to the vets. His face is very swollen and earlier today his little eye was closed too , however it is just an abcess and nothing more serious, but the vet said the area around his tooth is very infected and was weeping....poor Henry. The vet has given Mum some antibiotic drops to give to Henry twice a day for the next ten days, so we are hoping within the next 24-48 hours he may start to feel a little better.
The vet also recommended sedating Henry, and x-raying his mouth/teeth area and possibly removing the teeth. Mum said this was out of the question, firstly she doesnt believe Henry would make it through an anaesthetic, and this late in his life she does not want to put him through this procedure.
We will keep you posted on Henry's progress.
Thanks again, and hugs to all
