You might wrap the top of that cute sock with vet wrap just to insure she doesn't pull it off. Putting a tee shirt on her (knotted on the back and held in a knotted position with a rubber band) will add a layer of protection to the wound, plus you could find a pink one to match her sock and she'd really be stylin'!

The sock is adorable! The t-shirt works really well too--like Finn's Fan said, make sure to not it in the back so she can't take it off. The vet wrap sounds like a good plan.

I want a pair of those!!!
If she doesn't keep it on, talk to vet about the neoprene. You don't want any infection!!
So glad she's eating, peeing and pooing!!

Pretty insanely cute, eh? The best part is, she is not paying it any attention at all! It's not bothering her one bit - and she was totally fine with me putting it back on after I took her outside. And it fits perfectly - staying right in place.

What a trooper. She has been through so much the past few days. Now I need to ice the under-leg wound twice a day for 10 minutes each time (it was pretty red and swollen today). She let me do it for about 5 minutes earlier - not bad. It was already looking better this aft (I think the irritation was from the drain, which was removed). I'm going to have another go at it now.

Sending more good thoughts to lovely Tee. It sounds like she's healing well but is just in the itchy uncomfortable stage now. I love the sock! I second the idea of a snug Tshirt if the sock comes off at some point. Hope she's getting extra pets and treats.

Had a bit of a scare this morning. I iced the area, and then went into the kitchen to wash my hands. I turned around to look at her, and suddenly there is fluid the colour of blood just pouring out of her. It was as if someone turned on a faucet. There was a huge puddle under her - I grabbed a towel and it soaked through; grab another while trying to grab the phone. I called the vet - and while I knew in my head that it wasn't full up blood (it was the bloody fluid that had been draining all weekend) it felt like she was bleeding out. They told me to get her in right away. I was there about 10 minutes later - and the flow had stopped. What happened was that I probably shifted a pocket of fluid while icing it, and it moved to where the drain hole is and started to pour out. It was so scary. And the poor thing was so traumatized - she was shaking so hard and made herself dead weight. One of the guys at the vet finally had to pick her up and carry her back to the procedure room.

She seems okay now. The vet wants to see her everyday now to keep an eye on that wound. Apparently, it was a tough surgery - it took a lot to get the big mass out, and so the area is very red and swollen and angry. They want to watch it now to make sure it doesn't necrotize (was that the word?). My poor dog. I'm so worried that this whole ordeal is just going to age her even quicker. She has been so scared so many times the past few days. It's awful. My heart was breaking this morning.

Please keep sending those positive thoughts. Every one is so appreciated.

Thank God she and you are o.k.
You really had to have the surgery on her, so don't blame yourself for anything.
I am praying for Tesia and you.
