After Frankie removed his sutures post-surgery, he has been relegated to being a conehead. His displeasure is quite obvious.
Frankie was doing great Wednesday after the surgery to remove a mass on his back leg, so Hu-Dad didn’t take any extra precautions. Since Frankie is the only dog who sleeps all night in the human bed (Typhoon starts there, but then leaves as soon as humans take over), Hu-Dad figured he would notice if Frankie became uncomfortable or picked at his surgery site. Well, guess what? Frankie quietly removed every single suture while Hu-Dad slept.
The result of Frankie’s medical efforts was a return to the vet on Thursday, the replacement of the sutures, and the introduction of the cone. This is the very first time ever that Frankie has had to wear a cone and he is not exactly happy about it. He only is allowed out of the cone when Hu-Dad can watch him every single second, so that will mean lots of cone time for the next several days,. As you can imagine, Hu-Dad is really excited to expect this face for a while.
