Sherry’s back from the vet!
This is how the surgery site looks like:
Sherry was on the e-collar at first but she didn’t like it.
I’ve since removed the e-collar.
The surgery site appears to be itching, and it’s making Sherry rather uncomfortable. She keeps jumping up suddenly, scampering around to get at the itch.. so much so it’s preventing her from getting good rest. The vet suggested applying medicated powder around her tummy to ease the itch.
Meanwhile, to prevent Sherry from fussing too much with the surgery site, I’ve covered it with sterile gauze and wrapped some bandage around the gauze and her tummy. I’ve also covered the pin which holds the bandage together with some masking tape, just in case she manages to get the pin out.
