    I know that look - and my dog has zero excuses...

    She frequently tells people down the park that I never feed her or walk her (or train her)...

    UPDATE: Today pepper has been to get her stitches out, however we have been advised to leave her there for an hour or so, when the vet tried to get the stitches out she sooked and squirmed around too much! he said they are going to lightly sedate her to calm her and get them out. my poor bub bub! such a little SOOKY

    LOL. Some are just like that. Our Nero is a huge drama queen too and has perfected 'the look'. Desexing him was a very traumatic experience - for us. I don't think I've ever felt that guilty in my entire life!! A tiny scratch on his paw will make him limp as if his leg was broken in at least two places. His sister on the other hand violently ripped out two of her toenails and nobody noticed for a week because she wasn't showing any signs of discomfort.

    There are advantages though: no nasty surprises. If Nero doesn't feel 100% he will let us know right away

    Your vet sounds really good though! I wish our vet was that considerate...

    Thanks Peppersmummy - I do love an update.

    I think Frosty removed some of her own stitches, but certainly very happy to let the vet finish the job...

    I put lots of aloe vera on the wound too. Supposed to promote healing. And tastes yuk.

    Goodness me sedation for stitches out? That dog needs to start being trained properly or you're going to be broke if she needs sedating for every little touch in her life, or down the track if something happens and she's in pain, prepare to be bitten and scratched. It's not hard to get a dog to calm down and grow up, you don't have to be rough just don't accept the sooking because it will be for their own good in the long run.

    I had a 60kg Dogue de Bordeaux who developed a lump quickly and needed surgery but also a heart ultrasound before his anaesthetic. I had him lay on the counter and was ultrasounded/manipulated by the specialist with no anaesthetic (he actually fell asleep). All my dogs also bounce back more easily from vet visits or stressful things that happen because you've taught them to calm down and cope.
