Slicker, our Weimaraner, underwent surgery on Tuesday morning to have an two very large lipomas (5+ lb. total) removed from his sholder and neck since they had grown to where they were giving him discomfort.

The good news is that he no longer looks like Quasimodo, the hunchback of Notre Dame. The bad news is that he now looks like Frankenstein with his 12 inch long row of stitches going from from his neck down almost to the bottom of his rib cage. The news that really counts is that he is expected to make a full recovery.

Is he also a 'cone head' dog? A friends dog has had 3 eye surgeries lately, you DON'T want to know how much money they have spent on it in different surgeries in the last year, and the vet gave them a cone to keep the dog from scratching the eye. I wish yours the best of luck and a very speedy recovery!! Hopefully he will be running around like Weimaraners do shortly!

No conehead for Slicker. His incision goes too far up his neck to have a cone. All we can due is put a t-shirt on him and hope he doesn't scratch at it.

I'll bet he likes his t-shirt though!
