    Default Update on Boeboe's HD operation, (Femur head and neck excision arthroplasty).

    We left home today at 6:30am and we arrived at the vet around 8:00am. I was a nervous wreak until Dr Dave phoned at 1:00pm to tell us that the operation went well and that Boeboe was awake. We got an appointment with him for 5:00pm do discuss details. He says her HD was not bad but he thinks it was the right thing to do the operation now before it got worse, if it was going to be done at all. The right hip looked much better on the x-rays and he would not recommend surgery on that hip which is a huge relief. All was still well with Boeboe when we left the vet at 5:30pm and they said they'll stay till Boeboe has recovered completely from the anesthesia, and during the night they have staff there looking after the animals. We didn't go to see her cos they didn't think it was in Boeboe's best interest, she would just be stressed when we leave her again I know they're right but I would have loved to hug her

    I got a two page list of specified things they use during the operation and the anesthetics is called Halothane and it took 40 minutes to preform the surgery. The total so far is R5800 which is about 550 dollar. I bet the vet prices are lots lower here...

    They're keeping her for 2 or 3 nights depending on how she's doing. Right now I just want my Boeboe home with me It's the first time she's away over night and Bennie is looking very sad and keeps searching for her. I wish I could explain to him what's going on.

    Thanks to everyone for the support I've gotten I probably needed it more than Boeboe

    I am so glad BoeBoe is okay, and that he came through the surgery and it was a success. I'm glad that his other hip is good and he won't require another surgery. That must be a relief for you. You're right, the surgery costs much less where you are, here in Canada, and in the states, the surgery would have cost at least a couple of thousand dollars. Vet fees are very expensive here, but we would all pay anything for our babies to be okay. I offset my vet bills with pet insurance, it helps with the cost of vet care. You must miss her, but she's in a good place, and will be home before you know it. I hope she has a quick and easy recovery and heals well. Sending hugs, love and prayers to you and BoeBoe. Keep us posted on how she's doing.

    I'm happy to hear that Boeboe did so well with the surgery, Petra! I know it's hard for you to not have her home yet but it's great that she's at the hospital where people can monitor her. Before you know it, Boeboe will be back home with you. Hang in there, my friend!

    Thank you all Talked to the vet assistant this morning and Boeboe is doing great, she's been up walking outside a little and she's wagging her tail at people even She's on pain management and will be for a while still but they say she's back to her old self already. I miss her so much Bennie has a bit of depression cos he misses Boeboe, he felt a little better this morning since he slept next to me in the night, usually they sleep in their room. And I think he'll get over it today as my husbands brother is coming to visit, he loves him If all continues to go well we'll have Boeboe home tomorrow night or Monday
