Updates?

I hope this thread is made a sticky. Cosmetic surgery is NOT worth the risk to your dog.

Praying your little one is doing better............

Dogs can apparently develop it as well.

I saw a Greyhound die that way, once. She had been in a dogfight, and we anesthetized her to clean/suture wounds. The dog's temp skyrocketed and she died.

Just reading through what you've posted, it looks as if everything was pretty standard as far as Ivy's care. Sometimes bad things happen to good dogs. I haven't seen the chart so I couldn't say for sure. I am thinking though, if you signed a surgical consent form, the bit about complications is usually somewhere on that, whether or not it was pointed out. I know you said you didn't sign one, but then it seemed like you said you signed a consent, so I'm not clear.

Last year my cat went into the clinic my mom was working @ for a body clip.
He has very long hair and the hair balls were chronic.
They said they would sedate him and he'd wake up with a haircut, less stress I suppose.

Well a tech was allowed to give the drugs, and do the clip bc it was a simple procedure.
Needless to say my cat came home deaf and with brain damage.
My Mom felt horrible and took him to another clinic for a 2nd opinion. THAT Dr. said Pankins had a 50/50 chance.
In a nutshell...
To this day he is not the same kitty.
HOWEVER! He made a comeback little by little every day.
My mom had to spoon feed him for weeks and give him frequent baths.
He is back to his old bad cat ways. He gets into things and everything just like he used to.
However, he is deaf as ever ...and definitely not as graceful as a cat should be. He doesn't land all all 4's.
His quality of life is not as it was before his new haircut.

I hope that Ivy bounces back like Pankins did for us.
I hope that she regains all of her senses and abilities.
I pray that she will be the same ol girl :pray
Keep us updated!
