Barney Close-up of Stitches Day 3
What to expect on a conventional cruciate ligament repair. Probably looks worse than it is. A tiny bit of bleeding on the day the bandage was removed - day two, Barney objected strongly to his Elizabethan Collar but he's only had a few licks since. Barney has short hair so the shaving of his fur hardly shows. A few razor burns which I've rubbed Bach Rescue Cream into.

I've tried to source an anti-licking product in England but I've only found items such as Bitter Apples in North America so far.

Update on the licking problem. I've purchased a pump can of raw aloe, vitamin E, tea tree and shea butter and this seems to stop his licking. It just tastes like mild soap.
