My Baby Is Poorly :(

Last week, my Mum decided to take our family dog (Archie) to the vets as she had noticed a lump growing on his tail. The Vet took a sample of the lump to send away for testing. Once the results had returned, we were told that it was just a fatty tissue lump, but the Vet wanted to take more of the lump out, just to double check, in case it was cancerous etc. The Vet and my family decided that it would be better just to get the whole lump removed, so last Friday, that is what the Vet did.
My Dad took Archie to the vets at 8:50am and my Mum and I picked him up at 2:50. He has been whimpering a bit, mainly in the mornings and when his doggy pain killers and antibiotics have worn off. Yesterday, we took him back to the Vets to see how he was getting on, and to see if the padding on his tail could be removed. As it is an open wound and there are so many risks with it being on his tail, we decided to just change the dressing. Poor little Archie didn't like that! He cried and whimpered when the (very lovely) Vet carefully removed the plasters and the rest of the dressing. They switched the dressing from chickens to this:
My dog is becoming stylish :) (Imagining that old emoticon where the smiley face has sunglasses on and nodding his head right now! Does that still exist?) Archie will have to go through the agony (maybe a slight over exaggeration) of having the dressing removed again! And then he will have to wear one of those lampshades around his neck so he won't try to bite his tail. Aww bless him :( Get Well Soon Archie!

P.S I hope you're enjoying your bank holiday Monday :) What have you been getting up to? x

  1. Awww Archie's a little cutie, hope he's feeling better soon! Jasper had a similar op for a lump on the back of his thigh. He felt very sorry for himself but was right as rain in the end so don't worry :)
