Rasta: Pyometra, Surgery Needed ASAP
Posted 22 December 2011 - 12:45 AM
I wasn't aware of spaying either, and my girl is 9!! A few years ago we had found a place to do it for cheaper than the vet... then we heard that those places can do a hack job and don't do much for pain management so we backed out. I thought we were fine since she's an inside dog and never goes out of our sight. Live and learn.
Keep posting cute stories about your girl, and pictures if you can. The angels out there will get her taken care of.

Positive thoughts and prayers for a total success and the word that she is out of surgery and in recovery...
What a tremendous Christmas gift to you and your daughter...Judy

I am an early bird so I'll be starting my morning ride to work with my regular prayers and an extra word or two for Rasta...
Great job today...this girl has an important job to do, so I hope she gets home soon...can't wait for you to say that all is well and she's in recovery.
Praying for Rasta and a complete recovery

See if the clinic is going to send an e-collar home with her...that should help some...
I hope she'll be a good girl and leave them alone...she should be kind of worn out the first few days but after that she's going to start feeling like her old self again...
YAY RAH...surgery over...now it's just recovery...what a Christmas gift!!! Please, Please keep us posted on her progress...Judy

Poor girl...plus, she's a big girl...so I imagine you were really struggling with her as she wouldn't have been able to help you much...
But...she's going to be getting better and better every day...today might be a little tough but tomorrow will be better...
And, she needs to be quiet for a few days so that's a good thing...I imagine that she will be sleeping alot..which is a good thing.
I hope the vet gave you some pain medication at least for a couple of days...

I use CREAM CHEESE...whipped is the easiest but the brick works nicely...they also LOVE the cheese than starts with an N...neufachel (sp)...
I cut the pill in half...make them sit like they are getting a treat...the pill is inside a little ball of cream cheese...they swallow it whole...
SO glad Rasta is a bit better this morning...hang in there...things are only going to get better...Judy

Anesthesia is one of the more difficult parts of surgery and takes time to clear the system. If you have ever had any kind of abdominal surgery, you can still remember how it felt (ouch)...
I hope Rasta feels a lot better soon
