    It's been a week today. Bella's had her stitches out. The paw looks ok, vet is happy with it. We're finally off antibiotics too:)

    I havent taken any pictures yet but I will take some tomorrow and put them up.

    It has closed, but there is scar tissue...if that makes sense. It's closed but not fully healed. I only have my mobile to take pictures so not sure how good the quality will be..but will try tomorrow in the daylight.

    The "lips" of the wound seem to be bald...not shaved short, but actually no hair. But she is in no discomfort, and there is no infection:)

    But to answer your question simply...wound has closed:)

    So here are the pictures.

    The day of the operation...in the afternoon. We were just sitting at the park as she couldnt walk. Her eyes still look a bit sleepy, poor baby!

    A few days ago - you can't see the paw, but I like the pictures so will post anyway.

    And lastly a picture from after the stitches were out.

    The scar goes between the toes as well so is bigger than it appears on the photo. But it looks ok to me, and the vet is happy with her.

    Looks nice and clean.
    Is there any leaking or does it feel wet at all?
