Eli managed to cut his left hind in his stall somehow, so he got stitches on Monday. Wednesday was the day to change the wrap.
Such innocence …
Eli was actually very good about it, and didn’t seem overly sore or sensitive and didn’t try to kick me even once. So, yay? Anyway …
Please compare the original wrap job and my wrap job.
I have no plans to go to vet tech or vet school … clearly my path of book-larnin’ was a correct one. I am very good with book tape. On books.
Also, I am one of those psychos who completely unrolls the vet wrap and re-rolls it loose so that I don’t wrap it too tight. Can’t really do that as well with Elastikon but I wish.
Eli’s leg looked great when I took off the wrap. I expected swelling and oozing and there was neither. I am just going to keep hand walking him as much as I can for now. The stitches stay in for 10-14 days and I can’t get them wet, so we are somewhat limited by that.
