Sam always is a sensitive und nervous dog. This was even worse last week. It was a hard time for all of us. The wounds must have itched really bad, Sam always tried to lick them. When we made him wear the cone he couldn’t reach them, but he was also very depressed and barely moved. When he didn’t wear the cone, we had to be very careful that he leaves the wounds alone and were very tense. On top of all of this, he didn’t want to take his meds, and the vet had prescribed antibiotics and pain killers… Well, at least the pain med was a syrup and easier to swallow for him.
However, the wounds healed well, and today the staples were removed. Since then Sam is much calmer and his usual self again. Let’s hope there will be no further complications.
