Well surgery was on Tuesday and all went well. now we just have to wait on the path report.
They removed the infected nipple on his left side and as a result this poor boy has a huge incision with about 7-8 stitches. guess there was more under there than just the nipple the vet had to get
And in his mouth he has about 5-7 stitches and its oozing blood. For the first time in 11 yrs he has to wear an e-collar and hes not a happy boy at all! He kept me up most of the night whining or it was the bull terrier mix puppy barking at him because she didnt know what that was in the dark...
Hoping tonight will be better and that the path report comes back benign..
Poor baby. Hope he heals real quick and you get a good path report soon.
Yeah me too =)
I have a tramadol script for one of the other seniors and I did give him one last night and one this morning.. so hoping its helping with his pain.. He also had a dental done so i am sure his mouth is a little sore.. put water in his food last night and let it soak and will probably do the same for a few more days...
My dad was talking about picking him up and taking him to their house last night they were worried aobut him staying home alone all day... but he called and said he was doing fine (he drove an hr to come and check on him ).. looked really depressed in his collar but was up and walking around..
thought i was going to have to rescue my dog from my dad...lol..he called me several times yesterday asking if the surgery was over ... my parents like their granddog a little bit
Poor guy, I hope he heals up real fast!

Aw, poor boy. I hope he feels better soon. That's a lot for an old dog to take at one time. Give him hugs from me.
