OH what a day

First off Lilly chewed the bandages on her legs off so I called the vets office and they said well watch and as long as she isn't chewing the place where the claw was removed whe should be alright. Well at that time she wasn't. So I leave and go to Wal-Mart to get a size 18 mth onesie that will be long enough for her in the mean time I lock my keys in the car. When I finally get home she has the stiches from her spay surgery out and her wound gaping open so off to the vet we go. She is now stapled and wears a onesie to keep her from scratching with her back paws and a cone to keep her from chewing on her front legs where the dew claws were removed she looks absolutely pitiful.She actually crawls at times so that she won't bump into anything. She will just sit and whine and pout. I wish I had tried the onesie on her before her surgery I don't know what I was thinking oh I know, I wasn't thinking at all. She is on an antibiotic now also.

Yikes, what a horrible day for her and you. I hope she gets better quickly! I would really watch her and she sounds really uncomfortable.

Can I ask why you had the dew claws removed?

She doesn't like to have her nails trimed so I use a dremmal even with the dremmal she didn't like me to do the dew claws and when they get so long they catch on things and start to break and I once had to take her to the vet because one of the nails broke down the middle so I thought since she was under just take them off. If she hadn't been so snippy about me trimming them it wouldn't have been a problem and I would not have had them removed.

Bless her heart...and yours. I would have freaked out if Cicero had opened up his incision. I sure hope she does well from here on out with healing. Just remember that this will pass and be over with soon. ((((hugs))))

Pictures

The first pictures she has her onesie and cone on, which she hates - we all do.
The next one is a picture of where her dew claw was removed.

Poor little girl! What a horrible thing for you to come home to.
I hope that she heals quickly with no more problems.
