Ya, we picked her up last night. Seemed a little groggy/sore, but is much better this morning. Stopping her from running around is going to be my biggest challenge!

I have nt bothered with a cone, put a vest/onesie on for night 2 and 3 but did nt bother last night.We are just camped on living room floor on a quilt all day ... what fun, Mables wound looks great she's fine in herself but has nt bothered bounding around loads better than I thought. I kept a lead on for a couple of days and may put it back on if she starts to become more energetic .. back to vets this pm will let you know what they say. Hope Ruby is ok x

Sorry Amanda I did'nt make it clear nothing revolutionary she was just going for them to check it. She's had internal dissolving stiches so you cant see any on the outside .. just to prevent her going for it. Vet says it feels fine, looks clean and dry but is a little swollen underneath the wound today, just to keep an eye on it. Was Lady as boundy as normal ? Mable is nt but like I said Im sat with her on the floor all the time trying to discouage her ... not saying she's unwell she appears fine in herself but just calmer. Just came away from the vets feeling like she should be boundier, cant get it right though they were saying I should stop her jumping though... sounds a little contradictory to me !!!

Lady has the extrnal regular stitches...she was quite swolen for about 5 days...and she wasn't boundy untill this week ( week 2) now she is so done with the cone and being on lead that she cries alot. poor thing. I can't wait to take her on a big run.
Lady was visibly swolen...and a little purple in the area around the site...and not herself for a number of days...like I said about a week I think. now she wasnts to play like normal...and we wont let her...poor thing. I am sure Mable will be bounding around in a day or so. we were the same...keeping to the floor so she wouldn't feel like she had to get up. it helped...since she is a velcro dog and always wants to be where I am.
I have never in my life looked so forward to a Monday ;)
How has Wilf been with her?

Flo was less boundier! She normally jumps up everyone that comes along and goes beserk when I come down in the morning and when I get in from work but she didn't jump up me or anyone else for around 3 weeks. After 3 weeks she went back to her normal boundy self. Is 'boundy' a real word?

"boundy" not sure but it works Lol . Great that Lady and Flo sounded similar, she's a little bit more energetic today wanting to play with Wilf I've had to put the lead back on, he's been fine like you say about the velcro thing we've all been sat on the floor me between 2 dogs. The vets just asked was she back to her normal self well ... not if they want a playful pup who has at least an hour off lead running and then later can have a crazy 10 mins charging around the lounge... but in herself I know she's alert enough and not unwell just chilled and taking it easy .. they led me to believe she should be back to her usual self .... I think just a mix up in communication as like I said th then go on to say stop her jumping der... thats what Ive been doing and potentially she's been doing it herself . Feel alot better now your experiences sound similar .... roll on when ever i can go back to normal .. it'll probably getharder as she recooperates .. Thanks x

Lady is almost on her way to get the stitches out! fingers crossed this cone can go away and my little girl can go for a much deserved run!
