Our 18 month GOD had her shading op several months back and after several weeks had to be re stitched, the wound still would not heal, she then had to have another op for double hernias and again this was not all healing, so she has again been re stitched. She wears a collar and we have always bathed the wounds three times a day. On her first op the vet discovered that her blood does not coagulate, in fact she died briefly. Our dog is mentally alert and eating in fact she is brill, but the wounds are taking so long to heal. Our vet is great I think I just need some reinforced answers.
I can only empathize as I have never heard of the problem you dog suffers from, and of course it takes a toll on you too - that is where I empathize, we have a 10+ yo Westie rescue we've had for over 2 years and continue to battle skin problems and dermatitis.. some seem to be allergy related.
Sounds like you have to be on the alert to anything that might cut/wound your dog.
