Tess spayed

Postby Sarah » Tue Feb 08, 2011 11:48 am

Tess got spayed yesterday. I was hopelessly neurotic about it. I made it 2 whole hours after dropping her off, before I called to check on her! lol

The vet called after the spay procedure was done and mentioned that she had a little lump, asked if I wanted it taken off before she was woken up. I'd forgotten about it, but I remember that lump, it is near her mammary chain, but not actually on it. I had it aspirated before, and they thought it was a cyst. So I told him to go ahead and take it off, but declined to have it sent in for pathology, the spay was spendy enough on it's own. He did think it looked like a cyst when he removed it, so I feel fine with that decision. Poor dog has staples where it was removed, though, he took no chances and made a big incision.

She woke up quickly from the anesthesia, and I had to run the gauntlet of all the techs that wanted to pet her before I left (apparently she was a "perfect angel") A little lethargic, though. She is back to herself today. I'm having to keep her & Pirate separate, because he smells the blood and thinks she is in season. And poor Tess can't sleep in bed with me as usual, because there's no way I could keep her from jumping on and off. :(

Think "fast healing" thoughts for my girl!

Dearest Tess,

I hope you are all healed up and feeling fine in no time so you can get up in bed where you belong. ;)

p.s. Don't eat your stitches.

Dear Tess, if you were a drama queen, I'm sure your mum would pick you up and off the bed. But no, you have to be 'back to yourself' which means you can't be trusted not to jump about. That'll teach you to feel good.
