Update.

One of the puppies has a large swollen shoulder this morning and was in pain. Either abscess or an injury, felt like an abscess.

Down vets 10.20 am and it was an abscess, poor tyke. Had the abscess drained and antibiotics for two weeks. Puppy still feeding and looks more rested now that the pus has been drained out. No injury visible anywhere, so hard to determine how this happened, may have been an insect bite or a tiny scratch off another puppy.

Vet says she should make a full recovery, and we feel she will.

Fingers crossed.

Yes, Andrew is the puppy that you had to take to the vet on the mend now since it had the abscess removed? Hope so.

Yes she is doing fine now, we still have to drain the abscess but now only clear fluid building up and this is reducing thanks to antibiotics from vet.

The last featured puppy has real character. They grow up soooo fast. Bull Terriers always look a bit primeval to me. I don't know the history of the bread but they have the look of an anteater or something.
