AND, BHRR's Mav is with me today at KAH to take off his bandages and to get a recheck sans bandages on that leg. His weight is down 1.4 kgs from his surgery…. This happened last time too…my poor boy is getting skinny all over again.
UPDATE: OK! Bandages are now off of BHRR's Mav and the Vet says 'it is beautiful!!' More gold stars to BHRR's Maverick and me!
Another Vet remarked on how well we were able to keep his bandages clean etc. They said it looked so clean when I arrived with BHRR's Mav today. Sean & I take post-op care very seriously.
There is one area that keeps bleeding yet, the Vet was not overly worried and this time around, he wanted to lick and lick, so, BHRR's Mav is now sporting a very fashionable 'lamp shade'
His antibtioics ends on Thursday and the Vet did not feel there was more need at this time to continue the meds past then. The swelling is still substantial in some spots yet, I am so impressed with how it all looks!
AND, poor boy just has no love for the Hospital. Quiet as a mouse yet, just resists going even into the Hospital more and more. I will keep doing visits where we go in, get treats and the. leave again….he used to be fantastic and this is very understandable.
DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?!!!!
TWO PRETTY FINE RELATIVELY STRAIGHT LEGS!
I continue to be in awe….almost 25 years working in medicine between human and animal and BHRR's Mav's legs continue to amaze me – DP said that he could give him 'significant improvement' – HOLY! He was not kidding!
THIS is nothing short of a miracle!
HE has staples on the top and all along the outside of his right leg. AND, you can barely see the scar from his July 4th, 2013 surgery on the left leg – the shaving is from the IV.
We are still paying of his Vet bills as the second surgery was more costly than anticipated, with the bigger plate and we also needed to re-direct some much needed funds towards food purchasing as we were running dangerously low.
