I'm so happy that Shiloh's home and that the surgery went well. Try and do a little something for yourself after you take care of your furry family. You have been though a lot and I'm sure you could use a little extra rest.

Shiloh had a good nights rest and is managing the cone pretty well. The incisions look good, although there is a great deal of swelling which I'm sure is to be expected.

I'm just planning a very quiet day with him. Shoshi and Eli are so cute. They've gone up to him ever so carefully and just kind of give him a sniff with little concerned faces.

Rosa, if Shiloh will allow it you might want to try some ice packs to help keep the swelling down. No more than 20 mins.

Sending good thoughts your way.

We woke up for a few hours this morning and then all went back to bed. I'll call the Vet and ask about ice. I'm not sure they want me touching the area. But I can ask and thanks for the suggestion!

Shiloh is just resting. I do have him on the sedative and will likely keep him on that one more day. The less he is moving around the more the area has a chance to heal. So far everything is in tack except one wee little bity spot and that's pretty much the way it was yesterday. I think he just didn't have the enough skin there.

So, so far so good. Thanks everyone for all the care, concern and wonderful thoughts and prayers.

Glad all is still doing well. I think keeping him sleeping and resting is a good idea smile , that's a pretty uncomfortable area for them to have a large wound! As he gets better, you might try MJ's epsom salt soak trick, but too early for that...

Just a quick update, Shiloh had another restful night. He's doing well with his cone and will be resting today. The wounds look great and I think the swelling is going down some...maybe a wee little bit.

Hoping all is well with the pack and you today. Rest is a wonderful thing and I'm sure it is helping Shiloh get over his surgery. May you all be up and about soon!

At this point, I could not be happier with his healing. The incisions look perfect. He was moving around a bit this am so I gave him another sedative. This should be the last one I give him. He is still able to move around and follow me with the sedative but I think its helping him to sleep more in between. I know that I will feel much better with each passing day as the area heals and the quieter he is the better it will heal. I do feel a bit guilty for sedating him, but at the same time I know I'm doing it for him.

His spirits are good and he's managing that darn cone pretty well.

Thanks for all the support.

I havent been around for the past few days Rosa.
Wow, that was quite the surgery. I wouldn't feel too bad about keeping Shiloh sedated. It keeps him resting, rest is healing.Your such a good mom to your beloved pups, they are so lucky they have you and I'm sure you feel so lucky to have them.

Eli makes me laugh, Larka is the big mouth around here. She sits out back barking at nothing in particular, I think she just likes to tell herself stories and thinks everyone else wants to hear it also.

Just a quick update. I didn't do the sedative today and it sure has made a difference. Shiloh is up and down and busy checking everything out again. Oh, I so hope we have a house left after this cone comes off smile

So far, so good though. The incisions are healing very well and the swelling has gone down quite a bit. I think I'll call the Vet tomorrow and ask if he can go for any types of wee walks and when. I need to ask about flea prevention as well. The other two were just treated so they will be protected while boarding, but I didn't want to do him what with the surgery and all. I'm just not sure when he too can be treated. I'm sure the Vet will let me know.

But his spirits are good and I'm just so very blessed to have my boy!!!
