    Default Poppy's stitches, not good.

    As I mentioned in a previous thread, Poppy had soluble stitches. We are now in day 17 post op and her body is rejecting the stitches

    On day three the wound looked great but it has progressively got worse. There is scar tissue and pink swelling. I took her to the vet today and he gave antibiotics just incase. He said he didn't think she would really need them but didn't want to be wishing he had in 3 days time. The wound is dry, not bothering her and she hasn't licked them once. What a shame because this was such a tiny wound, sewn so cleverly, you couldn't see the stitches, they were all on the inside.

    I just took a picture and this is the first time it has looked weepy so I'm glad we have the antibiotics.

    Day 3


    Day 17

    Poor Poppy,

    Judging from the photo's I think it's a good job she's on antibiotics.

    This happened to Misty after she swallowed her peach stone. It looked terrible, but a course of antibiotics soon cleared it up. It healed nicely and you cannot notice a scar or anything

    I'll keep my fingers crossed she heals up just as well.

    Hope that the antibiotics are helping! Does Poopy seem uncomfortable? Hope she heals and you get a little rest.

    I hope the antibiotics do the trick. How stressful for you & I'm sure a bit painful for Poppy.
