Hope you heal quickly, Fritz! Twist recently had to have stitches too; they healed in about ten days, but it was on the inside of his back leg. Fences can be a pain, my sister is needing to get hers replaced as well.hug Feel better soon!hug

Oh Sweet Boy.... heal fast !

Cross the bridges as you come to them.. if you can keep the wound supple it should heal nicely. Even if you have to protect it a little longer.

One day at a time.. and feel better !

That poor guy. It's worrisome when they run off. My pit as you can probably tell is also doing the same thing. She comes back with open cuts and ticks all over her body. It sucks. I hope he gets better real fast.

Can I bite your- toes?

Kali Neal, Fritz didn't run away, he was caught IN his fenced yard!

Fritz, my vet read me all the horror stories about getting an incision along the shin to heal when my GSD had a tumor removed. It was malignant so they had to take wide margins. He used staples instead of suture material. We did leave the staples in for three weeks but when they were removed it was completely healed and looked great!
If I remember correctly, I used vitamin e oil on the incision AFTER initial healing was started, I think from day 4 or 5, to keep it soft and supple.
And, in spite of the path report recommending amputation, my vet did a GREAT job with those margins and she lived for five more years before it returned when she was 13 years old!

Sarah had to have a growth taken off of her foot. It got nasty while it was wrapped up and the stitches came open. Once we got the bandage off and treated it as an open wound it got much better. She has a scar but her hair covers most of it.

I had a foster who had a his rear dewclaws removed. The vet put the wraps on too tight and he lost circulation to his lower legs. That was gross, and recovery was AWFUL. But, he kept his legs and is totally healthy now, with a few battle scars.

Keep an eye on Fritz's wound and I think he will be just fine. Plus, he's so furry, scars won't even show! smile

Get better soon, Fritz!
