Looks like I stapled up dog after surgery in my shop! Walking around, just slow. Goes up stairs and even jumps up on chairs, just slow. Kinda whimpers at times, so must hurt. We have pain pills, once daily.

It looks pretty good, but I would still have had the vet do it. What did you knock him out with, whisky or starting fluid?

Just had our dog stapled up after surgery recently after he had a tumor removed. They gave us one of those halo's, but he kept getting at the staples. They then gave us a blue tire tube to put around his neck, but that didn't work either. Our dog is old and blind and relies on smell and sound to navigate. The halo threw the sound off and he walked into everything. The halo would fold up against his face and and pissed him off. Anyway, we finally came up with a solution that works. We picked up a light weight muzzle that he can drink through and we remove it when he eats. If your dog starts messing with the staples, get one of these muzzles GL. It has a snap clip so it's quick to remove and install.

Fresh staples and only one pill a day.  I'd be whimpering too! Hope she's heals fast. Tough to get a dog to "take it easy" after surgery. "Rescue Remedy" helps slow the down.  I know people that take Rescue Remedy themselves because they are nervous flyers.

Exactly what I'm trying to understand!

 

Plus, it seems like a brand new sneaker.  I love my dog too, but if I'm going to staple a shoe to her ass it won't be my new sneaker.

I don't think I would be doing stairs after a surgery like that. OUCH !, maybe the couch...Isn't it amazing how tough dogs are ?

Hope everything heals up and back to normal soon !

Yes, with my eyes I was really confused by those red shoe laces, thought they were the stitching ! until I got the picture "Ctrl +" enough to figure out ! I was thinking a drive to Iowa to remove a vet from his office for a serious discussion was in the works :rolling:

Needed as she has a growth or tumor at one of here nipples. Breast Cancer??  It has been getting bigger. They sent it out to see what it will be. AND, Dr. said spading would be better for her to fight any thing it might be, so did that at same time. Two cuts, but looks like one long one in picture.

At 4 months I had my dog (1/2 Pyrenees, 1/4 Anatolian Shepard, and 1/4 Akbash) shots and neutered.  3 hours later he was ready to go like nothing happened.  No licking the cut area or anything.  Weighed 40 lbs then, now probably close to 60.  Some will want to lick the wound constantly and other won't even bother it.  Our vet puts the stitches on the inside so the animal can't get at them.
