    DefaultWhat do you think this is from? (surgical site pic)

    Frankie had his stitches out on Tuesday and Dr. H. said everything looks great. I'm wondering what these scratch looking marks are from though. I thought maybe it was from them shaving him, but Doc says probably not. He thinks they are from Frankie scratching at the site, but I swear I never saw him scratch once since the surgery! Unless he waited until he was alone in his crate. What do you think?
    What do you think of how the whole surgical site looks in general? This is new for me so I have no idea really. I think it looks fine and so does the vet but I'm curious what you think.

    Looks like where they got close with the shaver to me. The site looks good, he's healed nicely.

    Could be scars from the bruising...?

    It does look really good though, good job!

    No advice just wanted to say that I'm so glad Franky is healing nicely and feeling better!

    I would say it is definatly from the clippers. They want to get as close as they can to avoud any chance of hair getting in the incision.

    On a side note, I got my hair cut last week. First time in a few years. I usually just buzz it off myself, but I am trying to let it get a bit longer so I don't look so thin on top The girl that cut my hair must have thought I was going in for surgery, because that was what my neck looked like after she was done. She was ROUGH!!!

    Not sure what the lines are, but I think probably clippers too? As for his site, it looks great!! Nice and pink and healing quickly. Poor shaved boy!

    I don't leave big tips, I am in rescue remember ;D

    I did give her a couple bucks though. Other than trying to cut my head off, she did a pretty good job. I will probably go back to her.

    Now Joe, that must have been one pretty girl!!!

    As for Frankie, I also think it was the clippers, however it looks great.
