Today Power went to the Vet, who told me that I should have found an emergency vet Friday when the skin was torn. I felt about 2 inches tall, but replied that previous vets had told me not to sew skin tears.
He gave me antibiotics to give Power, and the scheduled surgery for tomorrow at 8 am.
Sweet Power was calm and sweet throughout. He is such a dear.
The Vet in Quartzsite is open a half day three days a week. He's a real sweet guy and his office staff is a great lady who gets to bring her poodle to work each day ( my kind of job). When I drove to the office, the parking lot was already nearly full. I did find a spot, and left Fleur to guard( ha!) the car.
As I walked to the office, a lady walked up to me and said "You're number 9!"
I chuckled, because there is always a group of people waiting to get in the waiting room. Today all the dogs were very well behaved except one Min-pin who tried to kill every one who got within 10 feet of the dog.
I have decided to make a one legged pant for Power to wear while healing so that he can't pull his stitches out. I have a sweat jacket that will be sacrificed for the project.
