It’s always nice for vets to see old patients. Buttercup was brought in to the clinic to give birth a couple of weeks back.
Since Buttercup was unable to give birth naturally, she needed to undergo a C-section. Dr. Lavigne did a fantastic job on her surgery. They were able to deliver three healthy puppies for her.
This time, Buttercup and her puppies were brought to the clinic for a follow-up check-up. Leanna and Jose wanted to make sure that their pets get a clean bill of health.
When they came into the clinic, Dr. Blue was very excited to see the puppies. The doctor was very happy to see all of them looking so healthy.
Dr. Blue needed to get closer. He needed to make sure that everything looked great, especially their umbilical area. All three puppies had their umbilical cord detached cleanly.
On one of the dogs, the doctor noticed a bulge in its abdominal area. Dr. Blue informed the parents that it’s something that they need to watch out for.
The bulge could be an umbilical hernia. This is where a part of the intestine sticks out through an abdominal opening. It is just a possibility, but they are hoping that it’s nothing. It’s just something that the parents need to watch out for.
Dr. Blue also checked Buttercup. Dr. Blue was very pleased that she’s healing really well. Dr. Lavigne did an incredible job. It was just right for Dr. Lavigne to be the one to remove the stitches.
Her incision was more than what the doctors could hope for. It had no infection, and it has completely healed.
Leanna and Jose can now sleep soundly, knowing that all their dogs are healthy. They are very thankful to Dr.Blue and Dr. Lavigne for doing such great jobs.
