Thread: time set for amputation

    Default time set for amputation

    Yes, i could get a good quality puppy for the price i'm paying for an amputation on a poor quality english. .....sigh......

    her cavity is quite deep and never really gets disinfected. It's either the amputation or she gets passed around again.

    Two weeks from today is the date. i'll let ya'll know how it goes.

    My daughter has a cat that she adopted from a local shelter. He has cat herpes and he goes thru a roller coaster of ailments and we've had every test and treatment. I'm guilty of thinking she could've bought a purebred fancy cat for all the money she has invested. But I'd be missing the point wouldn't I? We wanted to give a shelter cat a chance at a happy life. That means dealing with the bad times as well as the good. I've since adopted three cats of my own. Two also had shaky starts and we were in and out of the vets but they are all here and healthy and love me to no end.
    Now I have three dogs and I've had a lot of issues with my Bulldig Wilson and I even lost his sister at only 7 months to pneumonia. Even so I don' t regret it. As long as we can manage it we will try to give it our best shot. I've made personal sacrifices because I know it is the right thing to do. Everyones circumstances are different and I respect that. Trust your instincts. Best Wishes.

    It will be totally worth it! I bought my beagle when I was a sophomore in college (my rebellion) and I knowingly bought her sick from the pet store b/c I felt bad for her. I spent THOUSANDS to get her better in the first 6 months I had her...she had demodectic mange, sarcoptic mange, inhalant allergies, food allergies, dislocated shoulder that never healed right from people picking her up. However, she was the most amazing dog ever and lived to be almost 11...she just passed away a little over a month ago (leukemia). Even though it is more work and a lot of money...there is something special about knowing you did this for them...and I never regretted it ever!!

    I wish she will be fine. I hate seeing humans or dogs being amputated. It's also like seeing them dead. How is the dog now?

    Please let us know how it goes. I understand that it is a pretty involved surgery. Just remember all the love you will get in return!

    well, we're back from the surgery and she's doing just fine. it cost 2K - half of that was the labor. He said it was a very bad case, very recessed. He showed me what he took out. Gross - i thought it would be a bone but it was the "pocket". I didn't take it with me as it would have just rotted.

    It was Dr. Vagnetti at Valley for those in Tucson. I liked him. Stitches out in two weeks - i expect no problems but will let you know how she is come July.

    It just looks like a 6 inch frankenstein stitch across the backside. She still is leaking some bloody fluid so i haven't gotten a clean look. Once the swelling goes down it'll look different.

    We renamed her "pocket". Cuter name than her old one - 'tammi'. She's very small so it fits anyway. But no more "smelly" pocket.

    That is awsome that she is doing better. I love the name Pocket!! You gotta show us some pictures of her when you get a chance.


    Who wouldn't love that face???
