For those of you who may have been interested in the fate of our little dog, Zorro, I am pleased to report that he is at last on the mend. We have spent an anxious week worrying that things were not going smoothly, but after a visit to the surgeon yesterday for a check up, it seems that we have been doing all the right things and he is going well.
His eye lids are healing well and the stitches will come out in another week (they are the blue tinge on his lids). At present he is wearing a bucket collar as he tried to scratch his face and we don't want him to break the stitches.
Yesterday he went for his first walk right around the block, without the bucket and he loved it. Although he is sleeping most of the time, the vet seems to think this is pretty normal and as long as he eats, drinks and (you know what), he is going fine.
His face looks pretty good too, considering. We were so worried he would look scary, but he just looks like he has his eyes shut.
