Sweep's having surgery 3/10 *Update, now 3/11*


Recommended Posts

Morning glory is a lovely comparison, but I also love Jerilyn's frilled lizard comparison. [says the owner of 4 reptiles]  And it certainly would aid in hearing her master's voice, but will she acknowledge that she heard? hmmm...

Here's to Sweep continuing to feel good enough to keep you on your toes.

It’s been a while since we’ve had an update! How is Her Sweepness doing? :wub:

She continues to walk well and werk on growing her chikken fluff.

However, she also continues lik-lik-liking at the base of her very gnarly scar, despite having her stitches removed on 4/2. I'm not sure if a screw is bothering her, or if she just, you know, broke her leg a month ago and that's uncomfortable. What do you experts think?

I think she looks fantastic! I have always heard that healing wounds are itchy, and this is a good sign that they are healing well, so maybe that bit still itches? Or maybe it’s that greyhound thing, “something different on my skin, Must Lick! “

Fuzzy MUST LIK-LIK any and all scabs til they are removed, so I think it's itchyness, too. I use a spray for feline hot spots if the pups get too obsessed about licking and make it worse.

Agreed! Believe me, if Sweep had thumbs and access to a chopstick, she'd be scratching that surgical site like crazy ^_^ Such a relief to hear and see how well she is doing. Good job by her hoomans, too!

Okay, thanks for the reassurance! I'll look into something to relieve the itch.
