Bandage is now off!
Photo’s are not the best yet, incision looks really good. Really good!
Some swelling and bruising, absolutely and, we did manage to keep the bandage on to today. I was able to take a peek under yesterday and, things were fine. He does have some seroma area’s also. Not abnormal.
The photo is after we took the bandages off, picked up the towels we had on the floor and, was giving him a break before cleaning the incision area. He was such a brave boy!!! Super star patient!
He has one area where he is having quite a bit seepage and draining and, I took a small video and, sent off for two of his Vet Team to take a peek to confirm all is ok. Thumbs up!! Thank you!
Being that there was more than I have ever seen on an amputee in the past BHRR has done and knowing that he had a higher than ‘norm’ blood loss during his amputation surgery plus post-op, (hence all the packing), I want to be sure all was ok.
AND, at this time, he has had no more draining. Walked him for a bit and, that seemed to help things settle……
Edited to say: that we are back having some draining as he was laying down and got back up….
He is eating and, drinking well – his urine is a bit more concentrated than I would like to see still, taking his meds and, now wearing his fashionable lampshade for as we were taking the bandages off and cleaning him up and, then afterwards – that elastoplast tape residue is going to be around for awhile! – he was trying to lick and scratch.
He is none to impressed with me at this time!
Treats are helping make the world a ‘good place’ again though!
He has now had his pain meds for the night and, is chilling…….|
AND, we want to thank his newest angels of Heather W. and also, Wendi of Vegan Cupcakes to the Rescue for the consideration of donations to his mounting Vet Bills. Truly, humbled…..as always….
