we all fall down
Simpkin has just returned from the vet.
They passed the Woods lamp (thanks SheWeevil!) over him and haven't found any actual evidence of ringworm - ie, he didn't glow green. Which is reassuring. However, they have taken some culture of the stuff around his claws (yack yack yack yack) and are going to try to grow a culture from it.
We have to give him an antibiotic twice a day, which will be fun - the last time we had to give him a course of tablets he spent virtually a week up the chimney.
And he has also been prescribed some 'Pet Sunscreen Spray' as the vet says that he has sunburned ears.
I can't see it working after the first time, somehow; however, it's quite shady up the chimney, so perhaps it will become a non-issue.
Oh, and he has to go back in a week for a check-up.
So far today we have spent £160 quid on vetinerary bills, so we're quite pleased we're remortgaging, really.
