Thank you for your concern, those who requested an update. I haven't been online much the past few days to post one! Cosmo is doing well, ate his breakfast this morning, is doing all the things a dog is supposed to do. His incision was a little swollen and oozing yesterday, but seems better today. I called the vet's office, and I am very grateful I don't have to take him to be seen, as it is such an effort to take him places. Just need to apply hot packs several times today. So, he is healing, so far so good! Both dogs managed the noise of the fireworks quite well. They are wonderful critters! Thank you for asking... Hugs, Beth.
