Aspen’s Recovery Update

Aspen lying on the floor and looking over her shoulder at the camera with a pouty look on her face.

As you can see, Aspen wasn’t a very happy camper after her surgery.

it has now been six days since her canine extraction and she is recovering well. She eats soft foods each meal to prevent any irritation of the surgery site and gets Medicam each morning to help with pain. In addition, she is taking Clindamycin and Arnica for the infection.

Her lymph node is about half the size it was when Dr B saw it last week, so we think the antibiotics are working and that it should be back to its normal size soon. Knowing that the lymph node continues to shrink makes us quite happy because Dr B was beginning to worry that it might be signally something much more serious.

I will continue to give everyone updates on Aspen.
