That is great news! Bolt had an open wound when they removed his sutures. A couple clots came out too, looked like miniature sized livers. it was so weird. He has been doing great. Yesterday though my husband noticed a stitch end sticking out of the wound area (which is all closed now and scarred). He is in another state at the moment visiting his dad and gma, and he pulled it out and his gma is a nurse, she said it was a catgut stitch. I'm thinking he was probably allergic to the sutures put in because it never really healed good and he itched at it alot and the areas the sutures were in the skin were very red. I did read online that if a dog is allergic to the inside sutures, the body pushes them out, so thats another reason why im thinking the clots came out. But other than that he is great as well! Glad Achilles is good give him hugs from all of us
I just got this message today (January 10th). Weird!
Achilles is doing great. He's still got one section of his leg that is slow to heal and it is an open wound at this point, but the rest of his incision is totally healed! Yippee! He is back to his normal routine - running and playing.
Thank you for checking in on him - you are too sweet.
