All is well

And I can now relax and stop feeling sick about this whole back situation.

Whew its over. He had his appointment and they did not say anything was wrong, he did not ask but they would have told him he says... sooo...Its done. I still have to work my magic in stuffing his wound for the next week or so but I am becoming pro at it!

Ok on to fun news, Daisy is being fixed next week and GEEZUSS its expensive to have a dog, she's so picky she will only eat the "expensive" dog food @10 for a 12 day supply. I guess its a bit of the husbands fault too for buying her the Royal Canine $12 a bag specialty Chihuahua food. It does say its good for her heart and health and the poor thing has been through an awful lot in her short life. Geez I love that little mutt. The vet asked if we would be taking the option of the cone for her after her surgery (who knew it was an option?) they said some people opt to not have the cone but he said that if she licks her wounds open she will have to go back to have it re-closed at a cost of $45. So we opted for the $11 cone. SHE IS NOT GOING TO LIKE THAT! But you can all be sure that I will certainly post pictures of how silly she looks like a good dog mommy.

Ask your vet about the right food for Daisy, whatever it says on the package is simply marketing remember.

When we had Cecil fixed, the vet gave him this pain buster thingy that kept him medicated for the first 12 hours or so and this was great because it helped him to stay sleepy and not run around right after surgery. It also helped me to not feel he was in pain that was indirectly because of me. I don't know if they use these routinely now, but you might want to ask your vet about this too. Tell Daisy that if she is a good girl about the collar that she and mommy will go shopping when she feels better and buy a her a new outfit. It COULD help!

Awwwww, poor lil Daisy. She will so not like that collar thing. And she will look pitiful. And funny. Can we get a picture posted?

That is good news about your husband. I know both of you are relieved.

Anne- have you ever heard of neuticals? Do a google search and see if they are right for him hehe.

I hope Daisy gets along well with getting fixed. She shouldn't have the cone on for long. And soon she will be back to herself. I so want a dog.

I think those cones are simply a money-making scam for vets.
