Roxy Girl ~ Update post-surgery

Roxy, our Fox Terrier (11 years old), came through surgery for her mammary tumor with flying colors. Mr. W picked her up from the Vet’s today, complete with an Elizabethan (E) collar. This will prevent her from chewing and licking her incision on her lower belly. After I returned home from work, she didn’t get two inches away from me all evening. In fact, it was really hard to take a picture. Here she is in her E-collar, which she hates, but it’s a necessary evil for a few days.

The cat is afraid of her in this contraption, wondering what this strange alien-looking creature is! Hopefully Roxy will have a full, easy recovery. She is such a little trooper, and the best patient ever!

I'm glad she's doing okay. She looks pretty cute with that collar on I must say.

Have a great day!
