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?
