We put him in the back of our pick-up truck on a lead. We always carry a selection of collars with us. He seemed happy and laid down while we drove home first to get the cage to put him in. The vet clinic was 35 miles from where we were and we would have to drive down a motorway, so we needed the cage for him to be safe.

His rear end was shaved and the deep holes cleaned. He was given antibiotics and would have to take medication at home too.
