Amelia gave us quite a scare yesterday when she stopped eating and refused to come out from under the bed. This was a huge shift from Amelia’s usual behavior which involves snuggling up to her foster Mom at every opportunity. Jill brought Amelia to the Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center of New England when her foster Mom discovered that her mouth was swelling! It turns out Amelia had a fever an abscess in her mouth! She had to stay overnight and go under anesthesia to have the area around her mouth shaved and the abscess drained.
I am happy to report that as of this afternoon, Amelia is out of surgery and has her appetite back. She has also charmed everyone at VESCONE with her sweet personality! She will return to her foster Mom tonight with antibiotics and a partially shaved face.
