The usually handsome Stan has marred his good looks with a case of, what looks like, teenage acne.
These started off as a couple of tiny bumps under his skin and by evening one had erupted. The next morning he looked like this.
Antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, ointment, antiseptic and sixty seven euros later, the vet thinks he had been rummaging about in a plant to which he had a reaction. There are all sorts of plants in our garden – cultivated and otherwise – so I don’t know which one would have done this. There are some euphorbia, the sap of which I know can be nasty.
Anyway, hopefully he will have his looks back again soon.
