Jojo went through a tail amputation - so officially, he had lost the tip of his tail. :(
Thankfully, by this evening, he was ready to be discharged and now he is already home resting. For 10 days, he has to wear the e-collar for the wound to heal and then on June 1, I would need to bring him back to the Vet to remove the stitches.
Four of us - dad and mom, my other maid (not the one who accompanied me last nite) and I, visited Jojo and the vet hospital late morning. Jojo was well and awake and when I let him out of the cage, he actually jumped up at me which meant he has enough energy. He looked like his normal self except of course his tail end is gone, and bandaged up.
When we put him back to the cage again with great difficulty, he looked so miserable...
He even cried - well, wailed - when we left.. I think he thought he was being deserted in this horrible place.
Anyway, we had to wait till the same Dr who saw him last night to come in first and he was on afternoon shift. So when I got the clearance over the phone with the Dr, mom and I went to fetch Jojo back home in the evening.
And when he reached home, the first thing he did was pee, and then followed by this.
It's quite comical - in a sadist way - to see his head in an e-collar and the tail bandaged up..but at least he seems to be in good spirit. He was so thirsty and drank a lot. But he didn't eat much..
Oh, I must mention that Jelly seemed to have missed her brother Jojo quite bit! The whole day she was pretty down.. but now back to her normal self again after seeing Jojo home.
Dogs are such deary animals.. Jojo had no vengeance what so ever against me for making him suffer like this (though accidentally but human beings would!) I'm still feeling quite remorseful... so I told myself I would make it up to him.
