Cucumber had previously been sick and stopped eating. The vet diagnosed him with a RI and we started treatments, which were an antibiotic (every 3 days), oral calcium, and an anti-inflammatory. He has since stopped the anti-inflammatory and has a few more doses of his antibiotic left. I've recently noticed a bump on his neck, and was worried it might be edema, but the vet didn't seem concerned. I wanted to double check with you all! Does this look like edema? He is still on oral calcium plus his daily dustings. Is he getting too much supplementation? What should I do next?
