    Angel has a hoof abscess :(

    Vet is coming out tonight to open a hole to help it drain.

    My poor girl - it looks so painful.

    How did you know Angel has an abcess?

    After we bought Gem, we found out he's had them, and when the vet came out there was some sensitivity in his right front hoof, but he couldn't get an x-ray of it.

    Is there another way to find out?

    I hope Angel makes a speedy recovery.

    You should put it in hot and then cold water.
