Albus went back to the vet today to check his ear and get the bandages off.  Well they decided to rebandage it for 2 more days, but as you will see Albus had had enough.  While I was gone this evening he took the bandages off.  The paged vet seemed to think it would be ok but I will call back tomorrow to speak to his normal vet just to make sure.

So here are his stitches...and be thankful I'm showing you this side and not the inside.

He doesn't act like it hurts. He's laying on that side right now snoring up a storm.

They're so resilient, aren't they? Still, it makes me sad to see a puppy like this... I really hope that he has no pain. :)

His poor ear. Hope he feels better soon.

I took Daisy in yesterday to have the vet look at her ear, and she's going in tomorrow (Friday) morning to have the surgery :(

This will be her fourth surgery in five years! Man, she's more high-maintenance than my kids were!

I'm glad to see that Albus is doing well.

How did the surgery go?

The surgery went well, and Daisy was all hyper when I picked her up -- quite different from past surgical experiences!

She's now six days into recovery, and is acting completely normal. I had to put the e-collar on her once because she started scratching at her ear, but she didn't seem to rip any stitches out.

I'm wondering, though, why her ear still looks like it's got a hematoma. It's still got that swollen squishy look to it, although I haven't tried squishing it due to it still having stitches and possibly being sore. Is it supposed to look all swollen like this? We've given Daisy her antibiotics right on schedule, and her ear's not hot or red: just lumpy and stitched up.

We're going in on Monday the 20th to have the vet remove the stitches. I guess I'll find out then if this actually worked.

Well the healing is doing great, but I noticed another little swollen spot right above the incision. So I have to take him in tomorrow to have that looked at
