Mrs Dingle had her stitches taken out today!

Mrs Dingle went back to the vet one last time today. She had to go back last Saturday to have her dressing changed because it had started to chafe and her arm that had stitches in it was starting to swell - but today we went and had everything removed, got the report back from the Atlantic Veterinary College about the tumour, and had her stitches taken out.

It turns out it was a mammary tumour - those things have been dogging my animals like you wouldn't believe - but once again it was benign - which was super! One of my foster dogs - Eddy also had 100's of mammary tumours that dragged her down until they were removed as well. So hopefully because it was removed she won't get another one. She's just got to get used to walking around without that big amount of dead weight hanging off her chest - that must be such a relief! It'll be so much easier to wrestle with Jada now and keep her in line :)

Here's some pictures that I took today - she was pretty pissed off about the whole thing needless to say.
