The Doctor said when I bring her back to take the staples out she will give me x-rays so I can have. So there is something to compare to at a later date if need be, and sh...

PS: I have to take her to the Vets in 10 days to get her staples out ... The Tech was saying her suctures will desolve, then she was like wait a minute, the Doctor put in Staples as well, so she will have to return for them to be removed ... I was surprized that she has staples on top of suctures
