My poor small dog needed to have some nasty cysts removed from her back and shoulder yesterday, and after a day at the vet’s very expensive holiday resort, she returned home late last night trussed up like a Christmas ham. The nifty elastic corset is to maintain pressure on the two surgery sites, and to keep the bandages in the right place. This elegant outfit needs to remain in place for about 5 days until stitches can be removed.
Poor thing is a very sad and sorry little person today, obviously most uncomfortable and she has not moved far from the warmth of the fire – mind you, neither have I. The smiley faces mark where the incisions were made, but I think they got this one a bit wrong as it has bled through the bandages. I can imagine it is all going to be a bit grotty in five days time.
I like the practical name tag – much more sensible than those bracelet things people wear when they go to hospital!
