Well, here is a picture of our dear little Varmint, following her overnight stay at the vet hospital. She has to wear the bandage until Thursday, then in two weeks, all the stitches come out.
There were no local veterinarians in town, so we traveled 110 miles to the city first thing Saturday morning for her treatment. I was totally impressed by the vet we chose, and Varmint was allowed to come home Sunday afternoon and was welcomed by all our furbabies. She's doing great, but has lots of stitches, and taking medicine, too.
I always tell people Varmint is a skinny little kitty, but the vet has informed me she's healthy and just "petite," so I'll never call her skinny again! Abby the schnauzer was happy to have her playmate back in the house, even though it will be at least two weeks before they can play.
