No icing, just cleaning with wash cloth 2x daily
Shades went in to see our regular vet yesterday to have the drain removed. He was a very good boy.
Dr. Mike said he didn't think it looked too bad but was probably very painful, so he switched his meds up a little bit. He said to let Shades walk around more in order to help the reduce the edema.
Shades is doing fine today-- completely back to normal.... which is a problem when he thinks he can run and jump as though nothing happened. I can't even begin to imagine what it's like to try to keep a puppy on restrictions.
Stitches out in about 8 more days or so.
Shades will have to be left alone tomorrow while both Phil & I are at work. I'm thinking of just putting him in his crate without the cone (he can't move around when he is wearing the cone in his crate). He has been leaving the incision alone since the drain was taken out. There's no guarantee he won't lick at it, but our neighbors say he has been barking incessantly when we leave. I'm sure it is due to him being left in the TV room with his cone.
