It seems that my beloved Nolan gets an abscess around his jaw about every 6 months in the very same place. The area was drained and irrigated again yesterday. Each time the drainage has been cultured and he has been given antibiotics and pain medication. Twice I have seen his cat sister strike that area and then the infection started shortly after. As the vet said it seems odd that the infected area would be in the same place 4 times in a row. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar? The area has also been biopsied.
