Dakota’s procedure

On Tuesday Dakota went under the knife to remove a growth on her leg. Our vet looked at it earlier this year and told us to keep an eye on it for changes, and over the past several months it grew significantly and Dakota was licking at it. The vet told us that it appeared to be benign, and also looked to him that it had grown under an old scar so it could have been scar tissue that went wild.

Just after we got Dakota, one of the first times I took her out for a walk she learned about barb wire fence by running into one and receiving a nasty cut on her leg that needed stitching. This growth was under that old scar tissue.

In any case, the growth was removed, Dakota wore the Cone of Shame for a couple of nights, and she’s back to being her old normal self.

    I am glad the growth was benign and she is doing okay.

    I’m glad she’s doing fine. She looks like she played up the misery in the cone of shame though with those sad puppy eyes;)
