I ran out to the barn today to check on the boys. I had three little carrots and Sarge was all over that. He is so funny. I lifted up his lip to look at his teeth and he is always very accommodating about it. He is full of smooches and kisses. He gave Biscuit the evil eye a few times but Biscuit managed to get his share of carrots.
I was looking at Sarges's head and the hair on the top left side was matted to his face. I checked it out and bless his heart he lowered his head for me to look. It was full of that nasty liquid that comes out of sores - that clear lymph liquid. It was crusted into his forelock. I pulled his forelock hair out of the crust and got a look at it. It is a little sore no bigger than an eraser head. I don't know if he scratched it on the fence or if it was an insect bite. I went back to the barn and got some Clorox wipes, I only had two left, and my Furazone ointment.
I went back to the paddock and bless his little heart, he stood there so quietly while I cleaned his head. I was outside of the fence but he stood there. I used a wipe to clean off all of the yuk and clean off the germs. I put Furazone on it and he kept wanting to stick his nose in the jar. He is a treat hound. Poor baby...I kissed him up before leaving and give Biscuit another pat. I will have to go out there tomorrow and make sure it is healing up. I don't want it to get out of hand! I took pictures but this new computer of Barry's doesn't seem to have a Bluetooth - I will have to get whatever it is to have that!!
