Purrkins in his clean onesie. He needs them! He tried licking right away yesterday! We have to watch his back claws from scratching! He has one of us watching him 24-7. We took a short shift in sleeping.
After Care Instructions – note (The hospital iced the incision for three days while Purrkins was in ICU)
The incision should be kept dry & free of debris until it is fully healed. You may put a t-shirt on him to prevent exposure and discourage licking. Please, Monitor Purrkins incision daily for any sign of infection which includes redness, increased temperature or any white or yellow discharge. If any of these signs are seen, please have him rechecked.
Wound Care Instructions –
Please apply a warm compress to Purrkins incision 2-3 times a day for the next 3-5 days or until seroma resolves.
Heat a moistened clean washcloth in the microwave. Place in a sealed ziplock bag & apply to Purrkins incision for 10 minutes at a time.
Purrkins resting comfortably we rigged a bed in the closet for him!
Incision looks great!
