He was delivered to the vet before 8:30 a.m. and the first surgery of the day it was a minor spot removal. Minor still isn't a comforting word when this is your major companion.
Ben's surgery was done by about 9:30 a.m. and picked him up about 10:30 a.m. Since the surgery was on his underbelly placed a soft fabric on top of the van floor before picking him up. I didn't want any rough surface scraping against the wound.
As I couldn't coax him out of the van decided to put a cup of water in there and check on him every 15 minutes to be sure he was okay.
Eventually was able to coax him into the side yard with a leash from the van where he relieved himself. He immediately went back into the van. Perhaps to him it was sorta like his safe cave. I continued to check on him every 15 minutes.
Finally was able to get Ben inside the house. Since the doctor told me there could be some spotting from the belly decided to put a light colored piece of flannel on the area near me so I could see just what spotting occurs. My boy is still not fully alert.
Ben is still out of it and while he was interested in the Kong with a cookie put inside he wasn't alert enough to figure out how to get it out.
This morning he is more alert and on antibiotics. He is not supposed to jump or run for a week so am hoping we are able to avoid any vehicles in the development. Also hope the squirrels stay at bay in the back yard.
We should get the biopsy report in about 5 days. HappyWednesday everyone.
