Ginger and his many bite wounds

After spending weeks nursing Ginger’s balding patch (finally resorting to antibiotics and steroids), it stopped spreading and fur started to grow back. I was so, so relieved.

Then, right after that, Ginger came back one morning with five new bite wounds…. *sigh*

I cleaned the wounds with hibiscrub and applied iodine on them.

They didn’t look like puncture wounds.

And luckily he was still on antibiotics so that provided some protection against any secondary infection.

Fur growing back on that stubborn balding patch.

I wonder if it’s due to over-grooming by Daffodil.

Could it be?

 We’ll never know, but in any case, Ginger is fine now and the wounds have all healed.
