I haven't posted much lately because I have been so busy but here's a question/ update on Cally.
So Cally was spayed June 2012. So approximately 10 months ago, about four months ago- I noticed that she had two bumps on her belly and they had black sliver looking things coming out of them. We went to the vet and the vet said that it was a couple of the stitches that didn't dissolve just coming out now. She pulled it out and after that everything seemed fine. Well on Friday morning, I was giving Cally a belly rub and I noticed some mud so I started to pick it off and she yelped, I took a closer look and there was a swollen penny-sized lump that was crusted over. We were already going to the vet that afternoon for her yearly shots so I left it be. When we got to the vet I had him look at it and he scraped it off and it started bleeding. He was confused as to why there were still stitches 10 months later. He gave us some antibacterial soap to clean the spot and cream to put on it. Anyone have a problem similar to this? Poor Cally wasn't impressed; she had that looked at, blood taken, two needles in her back end, and spray for kennel cough sprayed up her nose. But the vet says she's perfectly healthy and to keep doing what we're doing. She is 48.7 pounds at 1 yr and 3 1/2 months.
We recently switched her over to Orijen and we haven't had any skipped meals or problems with soft stools, very happy with this dry food brand!
