    Aboo is my sweet Redfoot tortoise who was bitten by a spider (brown recluse)
    His abcess was drained and on antibiotics we have watched and waited and the abcess has shrunk, but not gone. So on Monday (Feb 13) Dr went back in and
    Drained it again hopefully
    This is it for my boo
    We have several more weeks of antibiotics to go
    He looks good I am posting pictures, thank you all for your we e wishes
