Angry abcess isnt going away

i have posted on this before. and a few weeks after i was braggin about not having to deal wit abcess in a long time on came up on one of my rats. its right under his ear. i have always took care of abcesses my self but this one keeps coming back. when i would drain it, most of the pus would come out of his ear. this is a pretty bad abcess oviously so i am gonna get him to a vet.

Any abscess that keeps reoccuring usually needs help from a vet and I am glad you are seeking one. If the infection is bad enough and he's not been on antibiotics that's most likely why it keeps reocurring. I'll keep him in my prayers and hope he makes a complete recovery.
