Rusty had his left hind leg amputated due to cancer on 9/14/17. He is scheduled for his stitches to come out on 9/28/17, exactly 2 weeks from his surgery. I don’t know who is looking forward to it more, us or him! He has been moving around quite well with the cone on but we have limited him to a 48″x30″ dog crate. Once the cone is off and the stitches are out, this will be expanded.
I am a little nervous because we are also meeting with the oncologist at the same time. His cancer was determined to be HSA, a cancer that is more common for dogs and can be highly aggressive. Positive thing is they did not see any traces of cancer when they ran tests before his surgery. Negative-not always seen.
