Dixie is back from surgery... phew!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I took my 7 year old dog, Dixie, to the vet's yesterday for surgery to remove a few masses on her body (right hip, right neck and left upper eyelid). Picked her up at about 4:30 after a stressfull day at school, worrying about her. She's fine, other than the fact that she looks like she got in a fight with a tiger and lost. Now I can finally relax, and get a decent night's rest again. Something I've been missing for several days.

I was surpised to see they had to shave her eyebrow! She looks like a pirate! She's got stitches in her hip and staples in her neck. I have to bring her back in to the vet's in 10 days to have the stitches & staples taken out.

I'll post pictures as soon as I can. Just glad to have my baby girl back home safely again!

I'll bet your relieved! Whenever our furbabies are away from us, especially at the vets, we worry. Keep us updated and we'd love to see pics!

I'm glad that everything has gone well at the vet. I always worry so, myself, when mine have to go and stay, for whatever the reason. Just a bit of old hen in my nature, I guess, lol.

thanks everyone for your sympathy.. I feel like I can finally relax, now that the surgery is over and done with.

I've got pictures of her "war wounds", but I must make a warning:
not for the squeamish

overall shot of how she looks:

the stitches in her hip: (she's since cleaned off the dried blood, so it looks better now)

the staples in her neck: (worst looking)

her bald eyebrow & one stitch: (a bit hard to see... no pun intended!

because miss hard-head can't seem to understand to leave her stitches alone, this is now how she looks when I have to leave her unsupervised...

Poor girl can't seem to figure out why she's being punished!
