    Oh, just got in to the forum to have a look at what's going on ... everything's crossed for Mojo today Sean, like you say he's in good hands and it's best to get those lumps and bumps out first off I reckon, if you haven't heard by now then I hope everything's off that should be off and he'll be nice and relaxed and spend time in his crate and give you no problems ... he's grown so big in the photo, he's beautiful ... looking forward to a photo when he gets home today...

    PS: Don't you love it when all the vet staff love your dog ???

    Thanks guys.

    I just got of the phone with the vet, he's awake now and it drained alot but he wasnt happy with how much so he went in with this sharp spoon thing i cant rmember what they call it and cut out most of it. He cant guarantee 100% but said all the ones he's done have never come back in his own words....... "wether thats from good managment or good luck ". So fingers crossed.

    The bandage is actually stitched to his skin to stop any slippage which is somthing i need to keep an eye on that it dosnt start pulling on him if it does move. Poor big baby......
    I get to pick him up at 4.30pm and cant wait to see him and get him home. Hopefully this hasnt put him off going to the vets in the future as it's one of his favourite places to visit. Time will tell i guess.
    I'm gunna spoil him rotten

    Yay for Mojo give him loads of cuddles - hope the vet got all the gunk out and it heals quickly ... once those girls start fussing over him at his next visit, he'll forget any pain inflicted by the vet

    She ended up with a pressure wrap, designed just for elbow support - DogLeggs Therapeutic & Rehabilitative Products

    These have had success when other avenues have not.
    Awwww Sean.Big hugs for the poor boy....I was going to post something similar to Nattylou..My friend with irish Wolfhounds has a similar problem with Hamish.

    Your vet sounds on top of it, sounds like he is in good caring hands

    With all her procedures katy never wore a cone of shame, initially because they could not find one big enough for her big heavy neck and secondly she never touches anything..she is a good girl.

    Mind you I also put vicks in and around any wounds/injury my dogs have on the first days.

    Keep us up to date with how he goes..sweet boy that he is

    Glad it sounds trouble free. Fingers crossed you don't have a 'threadpuller'. My deerhound came home from desexing, went to bed on my bed, and when he got up an hour later, the whole thing fell open, like a red silk lined clutch purse. I didn't clutch, I ran about, looking for car keys, He looked bemused and apologetic and for the first time in his life, was given a lecture about sitting with his legs together, in the car.

    Poor baby! He will be so happy to see you and be back home.
    Cone of shame... shudder!!!! I reckon it is worse than the surgery LOL
    I wish I found a good vet. Both vets we have seen so far have been quite awful for different reasons. Glad yours seems great.

    Thanks for the laugh. I needed that !! I now have a sick son AND wife at home and my throats starting to hurt...kinda like i'm getting crook myself......awsome and i have to work tomorrow DOH !!

    Cheers for the vicks tip Newfsie. I'll give that a go if he starts mucking around with it. The crates setup in the best spot in the loungeroom and his bedding is getting washed and dryed as i type. Cant wait to have the big fella at home. Which reminds me, he actually sat still for long enough on the scales today and he's 45.5kg not 43.5kg like last weeks botched attempt when he was going crazy.

    Fineb.......your right. I get a real kick out of seeing the vet nurses loving him to bits. As soon as i walked out of the room without him today they all looked shocked and wanted to know what was going on. I'm sure they have been fussing all over him today. He probably wont want to leave.

    Menageriemanor lol Hooch pulled his stitches, we glued it - he opened it up, we stapled it - he pulled the staples one by one out. I just found a staple stuck in the carpet a couple of days ago! Those were a couple of weeks that I am very very happy are behind us. Now I can only look back and laugh.. wasnt funny at the time.

    Wow Sean, 45.5kgs ... seems not that long ago all our younger puppies were fairly close in weight ... Mojo's powered ahead ...

    Sounds like the whole family needs some Vicks you can all rub the extra bits around Mojo's wound and make him feel part of it all ...

    Glad to hear he is okay Sean! Leaving my two at the vets always makes me nervous as well so I know how you felt!

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
