Vet said if it isn't better, to come at 3pm on Thursday. OK to use a dab of Prep H, I just cleaned with a witch hazel wipe and dabbed a tiny bit of Prep H, he didn't mind.
It has looked this way since late last week, no better, no worse, so we will wait a few more days. Does not seem to affect bowel function, just irritating to the boy. It is really pronounced when he coughs, which is way too much lately.
I use tea tree oil on his tail to keep him from chewing it, (we think his spine issues make his tail 'tingle' ) but I think it stings so I would only use it near the area, he won't put his nose anywhere near tea tree oil! Poor guy, bad enough to have lung/heart issues, now the "other end" has problems too!
