I'm really glad you took him to the vet, and proud of ya for doing it so quickly! Ive heard of 3-4 igs having this type of infection (but never saw them) so I suppose it would be rather common. I have no personal experience with it tho, so I can't offer an educated opinion. Just follow the docs treatement plan. I think everything will be ok.
