Baron update

Thanks for the update, Robyn. Baron has been such a great boy through all of this… and of course it helps that he has such a great mommy!!!:D Kudos to the Vet., too... sounds like she is wonderful!

Dr. Watkins removed the bandaging today and we were amazed at how well the wound has healed! The gap has closed up and there is only a quarter-sized area that is still healing. Baron will not have to be bandaged now though he will have to wear the cone collar a while longer so he doesn't lick the area. I am so happy he is healing! Thank you everyone for your prayers and positive vibes! They seem to be working!

thanks for sharing the good news!

That looks great! Kudos to your great vet, and your tender loving care.


Fantastic! That is really good news.


What great news! Hope it continues to heal well.

It looks really good Robyn, nice and clean! Good edging and colour.

I'll keep you and Baron in my thoughts.

Wonderful news, congrats!!!

Wow…he looks like he is healing really well now. 😃 Yay Baron!!


I know this is really far stretch and a late post but do some research on
Manuka Honey +16( or higher ) We live on it here in our house as far as to prevent colds and such, BUT it also has tremendous healing powers for skin wounds. There are a lot of people ot there that have had amazing results with it when cancerous lumps have been removed, and it is natural. It might be a mess but if Baron is still wearing his cone then at least he might not be licking it of.
Just wanted to give you some ideas as to what might work on healing it faster.


Dr. Watkins was so impressed with how well the wound looked yesterday that the cone collar is officially off now! Baron is so happy to be rid of that thing and so am I. That was his last check up. Thank you to everyone for your positive vibes, prayers, and well wishes.

Basenjimamma, thank you for the tip. I will keep this in mind for any future injuries and wounds. 🙂
