Sorry about the scare, it's easy to freak out when you've had to have the incision re-done a bit. For now I would try not to worry if it's not inflamed or oozing anything gross. Since it's not bothering her then I would keep an eye on it until your vet clinic opens. Nope, we're not vets, but that's what I would do with my Wyatt so take it for what it's worth.

I've had a son sick with strep the last week so haven't been able to update until, but today we are celebrating! Roxie is officially free from the cone and has all stitches and staples removed. We celebrated with a trip to the pet store to pick out new treats.
The red spot is still there with a small bump and the vet said the muscle didn't heal correctly and there is a blood blister. Worse case scenario, it will burst but then heal again, but to call at the drop of a hat if I have any concerns. I've never used instagram until now, so let's see if the picture works. She was so happy to get out somewhere other than the vet!

Ohh, Roxie looks DELIGHTED to be out and about, scoping the treat selection. That was one of Izzy's favorite pastimes, going to Petsmart to sniff the isles looking for spilled bits of kibble and investigating EVERY treat box and bag. More than once, I had to stop her from tearing open the boxes of Milk Bones ... and to think, those aren't even the most "smelly" treats out there!
YaY Roxie! Can't wait for more photos as she begins her Tripawd adventures!
Amy & my angel pig, Izzy
p.s. - LOVE the pink collar & leash ... Izzy would whole heartedly approve!
