We went to the Purdue Small Animal Hospital today to get Duchess. She had surgery on her left front leg on Tuesday. Other than not liking the cone on her head things went well! The vet and the residents were great. They kept us informed of her progress throughout the past two days.
It's going to take 6-8 weeks to heal. She has to wear the cone for several days so she won't chew on her bandage. We have to carry her off the back deck for awhile and cover her bandage with a plastic bag to keep it dry. And of course the first night we have to do this we have a snowstorm.
But it's great to have her home!
