Cassi goes to the vet (again)

Cassi went to the vet because the growth we had removed from her armpit got big and red again. Mike "popped" it and drained it out, so by the time she got to the vet, he wasn't concerned about it. However, she also had one incision on each side that was puffy, like there was fluid. Dr. F said that sometimes the dis-solvable stitches they use on the inside layer don't dissolve; the dog has something like an allergic reaction--the body rejects them. He drained the liquid from them and suggested a warm compress to keep the swelling down. Seems to work...
