Thread: I Don't Believe It!

    Default I Don't Believe It!

    I was checking over my 'new boy' for ticks and was looking around his private areas when I noticed he still had the stitches from his desexing! Now, I adopted him at around nine months old and he'd been desexed at six months ... He's now almost twelve months, which means the stitches have been in for nearly SIX MONTHS! We removed them immediately. I can't imagine how irritating this must have been for the poor dog

    I feel like a very bad mother not to have noticed before ... But what about his previous owners? How negligent is that?

    Wow ... i dont really know what to say. Dogs can be pretty tough like that i guess. If it was really bothering him he would have shown some sign of discomfort i guess. The previous owner needs a uppercut for been such a slack arse and not getting them removed.

    I know my vet would have been ringing me constatly to remind me to get something done.

    I guess its better late than never !!

    Gawd, Frosty removed one of her stitches and the vet got the other one, but I probably could have done it. And that was two weeks after desex. Couldn't really pat her belly without noticing and she's a belly pat tart.

    I don't think there is a bit of her I haven't poked, prodded or inspected on a regular basis. Makes visits to vet easier on the vet... The vet taught us that in Puppy Pre-school. Always look in the ears, the mouth, between the paws, under the tail, around the nether regions, in the arm pits (fave spots for fleas)....

    You're lucky your dog didn't get a tick in his nether regions...

    I also don't understand how your dog didn't just pull them out himself!! Koda managed to pull most of his out within 12 days despite the fact he was wearing the cone of shame the whole time lol
