    Re: For animal lovers

    Hi all ...
    Just a note to let you know that my baby girl had her procedures yesterday (Wednesday) morning and the both of us survived. Yesterday I had to monitor her constantly, so I wasn't able to get on line.



    She did well under the anesthesia ... they ended up using a lighter anesthesia than originally planned ... just a light tranquilizer and the gas.

    The dental procedure went pretty well ... except that one back bottom molar's entire root was exposed and they had to extract it, and the other bottom back molar fell almost out ..very loose ... when they were cleaning it ... so they extracted it and my baby is minus her two largest teeth. They think that both were probably super sensitive and were bothering her anyway. There was no gum disease, gingivitis or bleeding so that's good news.

    She also had a little mass originally thought to be a cyst on her right lower eyelid and they called me prior to waking her up and told me they tried to collapse it by aspirating and it didn't work as it was more solid than it appeared. They asked if I was sure I didn't want to have it removed now instead of taking the chance that it would grow and impair her vision and then we'd have to go though all this anesthesia and discomfort for her (and us) again ... so I said yes. The bad part is she has a couple of sutures and so has to wear one of those "lampshade" protective collars so she doesn't disturb or injure the eye area. I also have to decide if I want to spend $140 to now have it biopsied !

    In any case, yesterday she was pretty zonked but today she is doing well for a conehead ... which does NOT make her happy, but I know she will adapt in a day or two.

    Thank you all for your caring support.

    By the way ... nicknames, Sweet Potato, bitty baby, gorgeous, poodle doodle, and many more.

    I might be an expert now!

    Seriously, I really appreciate all the tips from everyone. Because of you all, I remembered to remind them to confirm her weight and asked about her general health and if there was anything there that might be problematic with anesthesia.

    I do believe that is why they changed up and just administered the gas.

    So you all helped me screw my heard on straight enough to make sure something wasn't overlooked.

    That looks like something Roxie would do!

    Missy would have done that. She hated warmer weather. Loved it really cold outside.
