OK so I called the vet about panalog. She said that the meds I have are for infection and to try those first. Well actually she said bring him in and they would do it , but I am aware that would require either sedation or more stress and manhandling than I want him put through so I said no thank you. I decided just to get my boyfriend to hold him while I did it. We wrapped a blanket around his shoulders /neck area in kind of a roll to make it harder for him to turn his head and the bf held him while I cleaned/medicated it. He wasn't happy and he did snap a bit and cry but it's done and no one is worse for the wear. He got string cheese during and after and this seemed to help. Now we just repeat this several time and he should be ok ? Fingers crossed.
