Default update - day 3

I think today is her "worse" day... She seemed more awake yesterday. Slept a lot but was awake. Sleeping more today, laying quietly today.



Her nice blankie is in the wash... Smelled LOL

Changed her bandages and the incisions look great! Her spay incision looks wonderful, too. No redness, no discharge Our Elastikon comes in tomorrow (brown stretchy fabric tape - you use it on the bottom of the bandages). Which is good because she has demanded to go potty outside, refusing the pads.

The razor burns... I think the tech who they let do it was not experienced with little dogs. Because she has a lot of nicks almost It's sad... One in her groin area worries me. I have taken photos Every day I take one of each incision area, and I've taken them of the burns too... The lower one is definitely redder and oozy today.

They said to use the antibacterial cream I'm using on her feet. Will use it on her groin one, and I have the coconut oil, aloe, and essential oils - so I will use those on the others.

Also said it takes a few days for them to want to eat. So I will continue with Nutrical to keep her sugars up.

So we are just hanging in.... I won't be too concerned as long as her incisions look good. She did better with the bandage changing today

Michelle, you are so sweet..... I hope you are ok? You have pneumonia? Flu season is not good this year

If I have to take her in for the burns I will be asking for no charge if she needs meds... because it is a hack job. They shaved her belly before (ultrasound) while she was AWAKE - which is no easy task, lemmie tell you! And they didn't get one mark on her! It was a perfect belly.

Her legs I expected 1 or 2 small marks but not her belly. I will have to post a photo. It is shocking. Her legs are all marked up and she has the razor burn bumps all down her belly and then the one area on her groin is sad.

But letting it go... will focus on her healing. If we have to go in, I will take all my photos and make sure they know this was their booboo

OK, we're all adults here so I'll share my secret for keeping bandages/casts on small doggies and kitties legs/paws clean when they have to go out and go potty.

Condoms. There. I said it.

Years ago I had a kitty go through the fan belt of my truck and she almost lost her leg. Long story short, she came home with a cast on her leg for the next couple of months. One trip into the litter box and the cast was BLEH! and I didn't want her walking all over my beige carpets for the next couple months with such a yucky cast.

After much thought, I went to the drugstore and bought a box of condoms. They were cheap, slipped up easily over the cast, stayed on well, and I only had to change them every couple of days, plus could wipe them off with a damp paper towel without getting the actual bandage wet when she exited the litter box.

Just get the plain cheapy kind, nothing fancy. I won't tell the rest of the story of how when I was standing at the drug store condom rack trying to figure out whether they would work and what kind to buy, a guy from church who I had dated a couple times walked up to me... **one of life's more embarassing moments**

Funny, too funny! Even funnier if you tell them "it's for your dog"...
I keep thinking of that episode of "Golden Girls" where they were going on a cruise with their gentleman friends and went to a drug store to buy "love socks" and the store clerk had to to a price check on condoms over the PA system...

I can't imagine the looks I'd get with Gracie walking around with condoms on her legs

So funny! But I bet they do work...

Gee Tori, so sorry about the razor burns. They have to hurt, I've had them myself. Hopefully the cream will do the trick .
