#SAGApupVolt Is Forty Two Weeks Old

Volt was still on 32.2kg on the vet's scale today. I have increased his food to 200g Purina One All Breed Puppy Formula twice a day, and when its warm again I'll decrease it to 190g again.
The histiocytoma on Volt's head is healing nicely, and I continue to doctor it with Bactroban twice a day. I didn't go back to the vet after two weeks as the bump was healing very nicely and I am sure it will be gone in another week. Another vet visit is an unnecessary expense, especially since they are positive it is a histiocytoma and not something malignant.
If you want to read about it, I blogged this week about the obedience class we had at SAGA and you can read about it here.
His "recall" re-training is coming along nicely, and he is so good on lead! He still loves to put his nose to the ground which is a bad thing, but its as if a switch has been thrown in his head with being on lead- he is so responsive and slows down to match my speed if I slow down too. Its fantastic.
