We were at the vets today for a post op check with Ruby. Pain free and doing well. We have to use the cream until Sunday then stop, it is very slow to heal. After that, we can swap to a skin balm to carry on if necessary. He advised us to find a way to cover her inner thigh more, especially at night, to stop her licking it.
Called in at the shops to buy her some children’s shorts that have a knee length leg. I cut out the back of them to accommodate her tail and pull them high enough up. She will wear them under her body vest at night. Hopefully they will work!
On top of that, she is producing a little milk in her rear teats. So we have to watch out for that getting heavier or her teats going hard to indicate mastitis:(
If so, she will need more medication to stop it, something her ovaries would have done.
Onwards, upwards and occasionally sidewards we go.
