Fin went to see Andrew at Donaldson & Partners Vets yesterday for a check-up after his Anal Gland operation. There was a small problem (isn’t there always with Fin!) as, due to the post operative infection which he had, (see http://www.heronbank.co.uk/2011/04/fin-update/) there’s a small hole where his anal glands were. This hopefully will diminish, and he will have another check-up at the end of May.
As he is (relatively) infection-free at the moment, we have taken the opportunity to have some bloods taken for a Sensitest – which we hope will highlight Fin’s allergies. see http://www.heronbank.co.uk/2011/04/allergies/
And the really good news is that Fin’s infection is clearing up, his skin is less inflamed and his fur is definitely growing back. see http://www.heronbank.co.uk/2011/02/fin/ It’s slow progress, and a constant battle, but we are winning for the moment.
Fin is usually better in the summer months, but I can honestly say that I have never seen him looking so good. Long may it continue!
