I picked up Joannie this morning. She wasn't home 3 hours and I had to take her back because she tore out she stitches. The Vet stapled her up and put a collar on her. She is not a happy camper. I must keep her in a cage, I borrowed a 2'x3', and let her out for 10/15 minutes at a time 3 times a day, Ice the leg and keep her from jumping. This schedule is suppose to go on for a couple weeks. Lord please shoot me.
