Visited Sadie before calling it a night. She looks miserable. She stood the whole time. Tried laying, tried sitting, but she's cut down her whole abdomen so I imagine standing gives the least amount of pressure on the stitches. Poor baby. Broke my heart.
Standing, stiff, head down, tail tucked
I tried to get a picture of her abdomen, but I didn't want to lift her up for it since that hurt her. I can tell she's in a lot of pain. She isn't crying though. Amazing. *shakes head*
The cut is huge.
The downside of keeping my dogs lean is when something hard hits their body - like this - there are few reserves to fall back on. She's already lost some weight and her fur has lost its sheen. I see some spoiling in her future.
