Considering how deep it went there is very minimal swelling! It looks really good actually!!
Quick question.. Where do you find this awesome duck tape haha! I've seen some with camo and flames in my hardware stores but never cute stripes or penguins!
Leave it to me to ask about the most minuscule thing in the whole situation :P Posted via Mobile Device
I get it at Walmart. Sometimes it's in the "home" section and sometimes in the "craft" section. I have also seen it at Hobby Lobby and other craft stores as for some reason it has become a craze with some crafters. My daughter says there is even a "Duck Tape Club" at her school where they get together and make stuff out of colored Duck Tape or Duck Tape Sheets. She said one person even made a dress.... it's crazy.
Today was the day the vet said to take the stitches out, not that they were really doing anything anyway. The wound looks marvelous and my trainer says she is surprised that there is very little proud flesh cropping up. It still looks icky so I am still going to keep bandaging it up as I hate to get this far and then have it get infected. From the front it looks like around the edges there are some little white hairs growing so I wouldn't be surprised if it does get hair back over it, if it's white. No biggie.
I took him out for a walk and a graze and he seems spookier and more jumpy than usual. I think it's from being cooped up in a dark barn stall for 2 weeks. I hope it doesn't take him long to "get over it" so to speak and be his normal self again.
