Indy has had a lump under his arm for a few months, the vet said it was fat and as long as it didn’t bother him we could leave it. In the past couple of weeks it has grown a little and was making him uncomfortable so today he had it removed. I hate having things done to my boys, I am a nervous wreck all day and then I feel guilty when they arrive home all sore and confused. 😦
Indy’s wound (not too gory)
The dreaded “lampshade” they sent him home in.
A better solution is a shirt, Indy never messed with his wound when he had the “snip” so he should be OK.
The worst part for Indy will be that he can’t go out for walks for a few days and running and jumping could be several weeks! Poor baby. 😦
Thank you to the many hundreds of people who have viewed the blog since Saturday. it will be strange to return to my usual 30 or so views per day, I will miss y’all. The serious point is that perhaps we shouldn’t assume that all rescues are looking after the animals in an ideal way, if they appear not to be open to closer scrutiny we should ask why? also, the owners of animal sanctuaries shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help, in these tough times when money is in short supply people are usually willing to give time instead of money. It is now obvious to me that a lot of people really care about the welfare of dogs and are prepared to do what it takes to help them.
