A few days ago, we took the dog to the vet to get some growths surgically removed. The one inside her upper eyelid took about 45 minutes for the vet to remove, while the other four, in various places on her body, each only took a few minutes to remove.
The vet put the Elizabethan Collar on to keep her from licking the wounds and it worked as far as it went.
I had “warned” the vet that our cat would likely help the dog and, sure enough….this picture was taken within five minutes of arriving home.
The vet laughed when I forwarded him the picture and said we should do what we could to “discourage” the cat from his licking. When we weren’t around (or awake) to supervise the two of them, we had to keep them in separate rooms.
For what it’s worth, “kitty” is almost 19 years old and “doggie” is nearing 12 years of age. Just in case it’s not obvious, they have been together for almost 12 years.
