Update on Wolf and a Thank You Note

Wolf went in today for his second post-surgical visit. He is healing well...and he had some of the stitches removed! Next week the rest will come out! I have now removed his E-collar (much to his happiness!) and his leg is now healing bandage-free! (He has a sock on it when going out to protect the stitches). He's now resting (and enjoying all the extra attention!) I have to say that I am very glad I made the decision to have the papillomas removed, only to find out that he had those lumps underneath. If you missed the post, you can check out my "Wolf is Home From Surgery" post for details and photos. My purpose for posting them is so if anyone sees these types of growths on their dog, have it checked out right away! They never bothered him or caused him any pain, but over a six-month period they did multiply in size and quantity, which is why I had him rechecked by our vet. Under all that fur, the hidden lumps could not be detected until he was shaved for surgery. For the baby of the pack, he sure is being a very good patient! And, he had a full rainbow of bandage colors to spruce up the healing!

 His leg after the growths were removed.



The many faces of Wolf, the patient:


Resting up with the family under big brother Gibson's watchful eye.

 First stroll back outside...with big brother Gibson right by his side!

Soaking up a few of the sun's rays during his first walk after surgery.


Relaxing with sister Chloe in the "Convalescent Bay" (after her laser treatment and anti-inflammatory injection for a pulled muscle after falling down the stairs).

Feeling a bit blue.

Watching Animal Planet.

Getting ready for bed.

❤ Good night and sweet Sibe dreams! ❤

We would like to thank everyone for all the thoughtful get well wishes, prayers, cards, and positive vibes that you have been sending to Wolf. He sure feels all the love and it's wonderful to have such a supportive community of friends here in Blogville! 

We also want to extend our thanks and appreciation to our wonderful vet and his team for all the great care they give to Wolf and all of our Husky babies!

  2. We are so glad for this very good news! Wolf will be fully healed in no time.

    Seems these kinds of growths are relatively common for Northern breed dogs. Three of the WDA have them and yes, we have documented them with our vet and check them regularly.
