The lumps that were removed didn't look serious (re: no cancer) so that is great and his teeth are super white.
Poor little guy is exhausted and uncomfortable from the sutures. Paul just ran out to get little baby socks, because he is already scratching one of the sutures with his hind leg. So we thought a sock on that paw would at least help stop his nails from tearing out the stitches. I know he's not going to like wearing a sock! But hey at least he doesn't have to wear one of those lampshade collars.
I am so glad it's over and I bet Toby is too! Now I can get back to work, it was so difficult to concentrate all day!
By the way, I've just started blogging and have taken a couple of your classes through various art retreats with you and "Mr.Sponge"!!
Glad he is done!
good tip on the tape, he keeps taking the sock off. We'll try it. He's in quite a state now, growling at his stitches and making pittiful sounds. It's heartbreaking.
seems to me years & years ago we used sports tape to help keep the sock on - easier on the fur. I had never heard the distraction idea - but putting it on the other limb seems like a good distraction!
what a grumbler the little guy is!
as much as I miss our girls, can't say I miss that stone in your stomach feeling when you have to leave them for treatment. ugh.
our best to all...
Jack had a crazy allergy for 2 weeks that caused him to scratch wounds on his head- we tried baby socks with painters tape so it wouldnt rip his hair out upon removal.
Healing snuggles to ((TOBY)))
So far he's just totally annoyed. His tail curls up and tickles his naked spot where they shaved him for the surgery, so as soon as he feels that he turns around and growls at his tail. it's funny and sad. Poor little guy!!!!
