This morning, i took Kai to my vet around 9:45 for his surgery. Kai got the anaesthetic injection in his left bum, and after about 5 minutes, he went *thudzzzzzzz*.
After helping the assistant carry a numb and floppy Fuzzball to the surgery room and giving him one more check-over for any more cysts and anomalies, i left the practice and went back home.

Around 15:00 i received a phone-call that he was emerging out of his sleep, and that i could pick him up around 16:00.

The wound on his left thigh is considerably bigger than i expected it would be. It was kind of a shock to be honest. I guess that damn thing was even bigger than i thought intentionally. I am glad Kai is rid of it. Apart of the huge cut on his thigh, he also has a 4 cm wound in his neck, where another smaller cyst was. Hopefully his recovery will be swift and without problems!

He is doing good :) He seems not to be too bothered by his wounds, nor the cone i have him wear when he is left unsupervised. Hopefully all will heal up well!

Awww, poor fuzzball in his Cone of Shame!

And yes, that's a hell of a hole to put in a dog's leg. Must've been quite a thing they pulled out of him. I sure hope he'll be a lot happier without it.

All this, and clean gnashers too. :)
