Staples removed!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Ginger’s scar took a little longer than expected to heal up, but she finally got the staples removed last night (3.5 weeks since surgery) and got the all clear from our vet! We celebrated by getting BBQ takeout and she got to enjoy some! She’s doing so much better than we expected. She still has some weaker days, and she’s gotta take it easy, but overall she’s made amazing progress! It’s crazy to think that exactly 3 months ago yesterday we were told by a previous (not very good) vet that she only had 3 months to live and “just love her and put her down when it’s time”. Our new vet was incredible at explaining the options, how the recovery would go, and even referred me to this site! So happy our girl is still with us.

    I’m so happy Ginger is doing well. She has a very sweet face. It sounds like you have a great vet (and a scenic yard).

    Great news! Lots of dogs really perk up when the staples come out – hopefully Ginger will do the same!
