    Default Staples and Xrays Oh MY!!

    Good Afternoon All,

    Hope everyone is having a good day!!

    Ellie gets her Staples out today from her lady surgery - WOOOOHOOO!! I'm sure she is ecstatic, but mommy is more excited...now she can play with her FAVORITE toys.

    Tomorrow she will be getting some more Contrast x-rays and Pneumocystogram done, as we have talked with her bulldog vet, about her Urine Retention/Peeing, and she feels she at this time, we need to get a closer look, at Ellie's Plumbing...

    Back story is, she can hold it all night (she sleeps in the bed with mommy and daddy), or when in a very small space in her crate (while we are at work), but when given larger spaces ( in her crate, or the house) her retention time is not very long. At this time she IS going to the door to ask to be let out MOST of the time, but she seems to want to go out LOTS, the longest she has gone is about 3 hours.

    We have ruled out UTI, as her bulldog Vet tested her this past Saturday, and her urine came back perfect.

    So Just need some good thoughts for Us tomorrow!!


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom

    Sending positive thoughts, hope it all works out. So happy she's recovered beautifully from her surgery

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Testing is done, all is good except the bladder, vet thinks she has Patent/Persistant Urachus, which as she explained it, it is where the umbilical Urine tube did not close off properly during birth, so Ellie's bladder does not completely empty every time she potty's, hope i explained it correctly, and she is suggesting to surgically correct it....has anyone had this experience and have the surgery done??


    Thanks and much Love,

    Neither Sandy or I have had experience with this. I looked it up and it seems as though the surgery to correct it is pretty straight forward. I would suggest moving forward with the corrective surgery.
    I assume the Vet has injected dye and X-ray'd the urinary tract in order to come to a definitive diagnosis. Get a top notch Bully-experienced surgeon for Ellie. She deserves the very best.

    Yes she had the Air and the contrast Xrays done. Which showed a slighly abnormal bladder.

    Yes we are planning to move forward with surgery, as soon as we can, she JUST had her girl surgery on the 9th.

    Her Vet is VERY GOOD, she was very descriptive of how she will do the surgery, she is also is a breeder of EB's so she is quite knowledgable, her office is actually listed here on EBN
