Kiki’s now experiencing bumblefoot and if you Google this, it makes us sound like awful and neglectful owners, which makes me feel bad but I want you to know that the second we noticed a problem, he was taken to the vet.
He’s on antibiotics (one I am allergic too ~ what else is new?) and we have a topical solution (steroids and anti-arthritis). He has perked up considerably and we’re seeing improvement in his foot.
It is truly special to watch Vince and Kiki together. Once Vince has completed the treatments, he strokes Kiki’s head and cheeks and talks softly to him. Kiki laps it up.
