    Default Oliver's TTA Surgery

    Well, tomorrow is the big day... Oliver's TTA surgery. I'm a little anxious but I really feel that he is in great hands being operated on by one of the best surgeons (and founder of the hospital) in NJ. I know @cali~jenn might be going through something similar soon so I figured I'd create this thread and give a play-by-play on the surgery and recovery. We're as prepared as we can be at this point. Here's a picture of Oliver enjoying this GORGEOUS Sunday afternoon on his canopy bed in the backyard - his last day of total freedom for a while. Wish us luck!

    Little does he know..... Thanks for making this thread, will make it easy for me to keep up on how he does. Hugs, I can imagine how freaked you feel. Always so scary when they do any kind of surgery even tho I know this is a pretty common one but still....

    @ChanelnBrutus We are using Dr. Scavelli at Garden State. We were given a list of surgeons by our vet so I simply asked her, "Who would YOU take YOUR dog to?" Without hesitation, she recommended Dr. Scavelli. Since then, we've heard nothing but great things about him and liked him instantly when we met with him.

    @cali~jenn I am very freaked out! Between our first bulldog, Winnie, and now Oliver - we have only ever been through one spaying and one neutering - no other surgeries until now. Not knowing what to expect when he comes home is what is the scariest part. But, I have been reading lots of personal experiences with TTA recovery and they all give me hope. I know it will be a long recovery and we're okay with that. We just want it to be as pain-free as possible for Oliver. If Cutty does need surgery, let me know! I have a bunch of great sites bookmarked about surgery and recovery. They're comforting, that's for sure!

    And I have to say, everyone here has such gorgeous bulldogs! I can get lost looking at them all. I am so happy to be here.

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    I totally agree! They are great! We have been using Garden State Hospital for many years...They did Brutus's surgery when he had a prolapsed urethra! You are in great hands!
