Maggie had her stitches out today and the vet is very pleased with her.
I couldn’t look (wimp) but it was done and dusted in less than half a second and she didn’t even notice. The wound may weep a little so we can clean it with the hibitane solution. We told him we’d had to do that twice since her op, but it’s healing nicely.
We’ve been told to stop the loxicom (metacam) anti-inflammatory unless it’s for her joints, and he’s given us a change in meds. We’ll get a refund on the originals we haven’t used, and these new ones are for five days. Her motions have been OK, formed, but soft, so this could be a side effect of those meds and/or the loxicom.
She’s also had her annual shots today, so she’s a little dopey and wanting to sleep which is normal for her.
Actually, she was a little subdued this morning, but we noticed yesterday on our final walk that her right front foot was troubling her. We tried to have a look and only managed to ascertain it was tender so dabbed in some of her foot cream which seems to have helped as she’s walking better today. We’ve had three walks so far, but as always when she’s feeling poorly we let her set the pace and reduce the distance.
