Recovering at home

Nala's back home recovering from her surgery to remove the mast cell tumour. With the Benadryl therapy, the mass had shrunk quite significantly so by surgery time it was pretty tough to find. The vet took a big chunk of skin and tissue out to make sure she got everything so now Nala's got a shaved neck and long 6 or 7 cm incision.

It should heal up nicely. The hard part will be keeping Simba and Mel away from it and keeping Nala from scratching at it. I cut the legs off some old pajamas to slip around her neck and act like kind of a scarf which should help.

In two weeks, she goes back to the vet to have the staples removed.
