My poor little guy had surgery today to remove some bumps he's had on his head. Oddly enough he had some ingrown hairs that got infected and kind of "bubbled" up. Thank god he's young and has enough extra skin so everything went back together and he should look fine after.

All he needs is some bolts and he's ready to go out as Frankenstein!

Cripes those incisions look huge!

He doesn't seem bothered at all and I bet you won't even notice when the fur grows back.

I was expecting him to be groggy and maybe even sore when he got home.. but he's his usual energetic self, him and Noire spent an hour tearing around the house before collapsing together. He apparently destroyed 3 buster collars at the vet so keeping him calm is going to be a challenge. :rolleyes:

I'm glad he's pretty unaffected and i'm eager for his hair to grow back so he can look like a normal dog again, lol.

Wow, that's something! Glad to hear he's feeling ok. A friend of mine has a Rhodesian ridgeback/lab mix and he had similar surgery but on the back of his neck- the ingrown hairs were so condensed and packed in there that they were close to his spine. The incision was just as huge and deep.

Bless his heart, glad he is doing well. At least he can't chew at the stitches but those claws can probably still reach it.

Amazing how these guys bounce back, especially when they are young.

Keep us posted on how Odin does and of course I'm sure he is getting extra lovings :hug:

Poor little guy! He DOES look like he had brain surgery--and this is from someone whose dog had a brain tumor removed!!! We called her "Frankenmutt" for quite a while after!

I'm sure it will heal up nicely and you won't even know there were any scars there. We put vitamin E oil on our dog's scar (after it closed up really well) and there was not one single scar and everything was covered by fur.

I like... Germanstein. It is amazing how quickly they are back to normal. And, I love it when they say "keep them quiet!!"
Glad all is well... and stitches or not.... he is a handsome boy.
