I specifically came on the boards today to see how Pucci was doing and am glad to hear he's making slow, but good progress. I'm sure getting the stitches out will help him relax. Give Pucci kisses from me and Taz. :sunny:
We had a fairly restful night last night, but I'll reluctantly have to put his cervical collar on today as he's constantly trying to lick the stitches where the lipoma was removed. He DID smother me with kisses this morning for the first time since surgery - needless to say, I was overjoyed. He also drank some water - yippee.
I truly appreciate your care and concern.:thankyou:
Thanks, Charles. I'm keeping a close enough watch on him that I haven't had to put the dreaded collar on. Pucci does come over to me from time to time for me to gently caress the area around the stitches. I can tell he's uncomfortable.
Bandit and Cocoa have volunteered to lick Pucci's stitches for him since he can't do it, but I told them to forget it! You've created a monster with the chicken, haven't you? That reminds me of our visit to one of the Iditarod musher's kennel when the guy told us that when the dogs get too tired to eat their other varieties of meat, he has to feed them beaver to get them to eat again. Have you tried that????? What, you have no beaver in Arizona? Just kidding, of course! The three furkids send get well wags and woofs.
