We have adopted Honey

Say hello to Honey! Our latest addition to the family. She's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is bubbly, super manja (loves coddling), hyperactive, and alert (she barks at the slightest noise). She's slightly smaller than Zeus but always tries to hump him.

Zeus is sick - infected paw and mouth

Zeus's first Elizabeth collar
Well, we found out why Zeus was so lethargic and moody. For a few days after we got him back, he has been licking his leg (there was a cut there), and also scratching his mouth during meal times. We were puzzled by this behaviour. But after a few more days the wound on his leg became inflamed, so did Zeus's mouth, so we decided to bring him to a vet (The Animal Doctors). Dr Emma Ryan saw him 2 weeks ago and said that his leg had a bacterial infection, his ear is mildly infected, and his mouth has a skin infection, probably caused by all the licking. So she prescribed him antibiotics, some powder to apply on the wound, and also eardrops and painkillers. He also got a E Collar of course, to prevent him from licking the affected areas.
