Third Day after (2nd) Surgery
Walter's stitches look yucky, but actually they're doing very good. This is his second surgery on this side, the incision is much bigger, buy they used sutures instead of staples, which I think are more comfortable for him.
Also, his poor little balls had gotten run over and were very BIG and swollen before. We iced them continually (1o mins on 15 mins off) until they became regular size. I never knew I would be a pug ball-icing expert, but I am and even developed a sort of ball-icing device from a balloon and a bag of frozen peas. The vet says the swelling is down and the abrasions are all better there.
I wonder how long his coat will take to grow in? One thing is for sure, we cannot spend the winter in Minnesota. we have to move for the winter. All the hardware in his leg, plus limited (if we're lucky!) movement plus NO HAIR does not work with icy streets. so - any warm pug communities out there?
