Customer Question

She had an injury,thought it was a hot spot, brought her to our vet Saturday. When she was shaved, it was a cut. It was flushed and cleaned, then 3 stiches. She had a blow up collar, but was able to get at her wound. Got a comfy cone, but she contorts herself and licks the wound. Now, two of the three stiches are gone. She's not bleeding, and the vet office is closed till tomorrow.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the dog bleeding a lot?
Customer: Not bleeding
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Coco is an seven year old standard poodle, 57 lbs
JA: Is there anything else the veterinarian should be aware of about Coco?
Customer: She's in excellent shape, very active, runs around like a puppy
