It's a good thing Leon has connections. And connections with access to anesthetic drugs, at that.
It has been 2 weeks today since Leon had his surgery. To remove Herman. I intentionally left his sutures in for 2 weeks. Often times with young dogs and cats, sutures can come out in 7 days. But I left Leon's in for 14 days.
And everything was perfect when they were removed. Well, for about 15 minutes. And then this happened. I'll link it, rather than post it, in case wound photos make anyone squeamish.
If you enjoyed biology class, this photo isn't a big deal. Looks sort of like chicken. ;)
Here's what it looked like after I anesthetized him again, and sutured it closed. About the same as 2 weeks ago.
So, these are staying in for at LEAST 2 weeks, and I might remove only 1 per day at that time.
In better news, Beethoven, an 8 week old Saint Bernard puppy, came in this afternoon for his puppy vaccination. Well, a vaccination, a tummy rub, a treat, and a nap.
Enjoy your weekend.
