    And they are clear..YIPEEEEEEEEEE my little girl does not have lymphoma :D...Vet phoned earlier while i was at work and told my husband..
    When he asked what was wrong with her the vet said she did not know and if she had time tomorrow then should would phone the lab and find out...I am supposed to phone back at 4.30 to find out if she had time...Surely she should make time..Wrags is still a patient and needs to have her stitches removed...and we need to know what is wrong with her..

    They took a gland from her back leg for a biopsy and stitched it up in a right mess...

    Is there anything i can use to help prevent too much scar tissue..:eek:

    Thanks to everyone who wished her well...It worked :thumbup1:

    I just can't explain how i feel right now......

    So pleased for you what a relief!!

    Once the stitches are out and the swelling has gone down it may not be so bad,
    many the time Ive gasped in horror when mine have been wheeled out especially after one that had a skin tumour off her nose, and after the stiches were out and it healed and the fur grew back you woudnt even know. So hers hopefully too will be the same.

    thats fantastic news :) im so pleased

    it may be that the skin grows over fine
    when red came out from his biopsy he had this huge lump and what seemed like flaps of skin everywhere, but it all just sorted it self out and healed down into a teeny tiny scar :)

    Lampshade to prevent licking and picking.

    There are various snake oils that claim great things, try plain sunflower oil, plenty of Vitamin E.

    Keeping it clean and the Catherine collar on as long as possible.

    If there is still post op swelling and the incision is still quite raw and with the stitches too it can look horrendous.
    Ive never put anything on any of mine. A vet told me there is two rules in surgery no tight skin and no tight skin, so as long as it was an area where there
    was plenty of tissue to play with and stitch it should heal nicely. Main this is to make sure there is no excessive redness, weeping or discharge from the suture line and no excessive swelling and it isnt hot to the touch. Dogs tend to heal much more quickly and better then we do anyway. The only thing that could cause a set back is infection, so for that reason too personally I dont think it would be wise to start putting things on it. Its best left dry to allow it to granuate and heal properly. Just keep checking it daily, obviously goes without saying discourage licking and nibbling at the suture line.

    umm I hope you dont mind but here is a pic of reds wound, its a few days old here, it looked even worse to start with but eventually it healed into a tiny scar, luckily as the hair you seen shaved here never grew back for the final 10 months of his life bless him

    also Willow's spay looks badly stitched, looks like my kind of sewing infact!! But Samba's looked the same and healed up lovely, its not even visible just two months later
