Rudy’s foot surgery on Thursday went well and he came home the same day in fine fettle. I am really surprised how quickly he can move on three legs! Here he is in his Cape of Awesomeness™ (otherwise known as an ElizaSoft Recovery Collar) looking like a hero.
That bandage stays on his foot until Tuesday, and we have to keep it clean and dry in the meantime. The clinic gave me this improvised bandage cover made from a cut-down IV fluid bag and gauze, but I found it much too bulky.
Instead, I got a sandwich bag and secured it with a silicone kitchen tie. Works great.
I’m pleased to see Rudy eating, sleeping, alarm barking, eliminating, and in all other respects behaving perfectly normally. He certainly doesn’t look thrilled about having to wear this cool blue cape, but he’s going to be just fine.
