    Hey. It's been awhile.
    While checking up on him tonight, I discovered that Oreo's fungus is back after several years. He can't get the shed off of his foot due to it.

    (the hole is from the previous mass that he ripped out)
    He's seemingly doing fine otherwise. Great appetite, feisty as ever. I don't know why it's come back like this or what we should do. Last time the doctor couldn't really do much... advice?

    I thought it wasn't a fungus but was a bacterial thing? Antibiotics aren't helpful?

    Yes, my mistake, it's been awhile.

We can go in if it starts up again, and there are some things we can do to get it to fall out before it becomes too big, but there is no way to prevent it from happening in the first place.
    We are going to take him to the vet in a week or so. I'm sure the doctor will be happy to see his feisty butt again

    Oreo's surgery went off without a hitch. What a good boy. 20191221_100937-1.jpg
    We're giving him anti-infection injections every other day. He doesn't like them, haha

    Thanks so much for Oreo's surgery.

    Here's to a long, rewarding, life for him!
