The burn is dry, and doesn't smell. It's beginning to granulate and sluff away. The vet was quite happy with this photograph of the healing burn. It's on his white belly, so it probably won't even change his hair color there. He goes in next week to get the final checkup on his stitches and removal.
His system now rejects extra fat, which means he doesn't need it any more. He needs protein. So it's lean meat next.
And I had to chase down his smart-alecky butt today to give him his meds.
