Ruby's Mom here:
I want to ask you all for some POTP for Ruby. She is in surgery right now for removal of some tumors.
She also is going to have to have a full hysterectomy.
Because she is older, 11 yrs next month, it is touchy.
She was fixed, but only her tubes tied, and this can cause a problem.
Please send all your prayers and healing thoughts her way.
I will update when I hear any news....
Just talked to the surgeon, and Ruby handled the surgery well.
Both tumors removed, clean lines on one, iffy lines on other, but both small.
Lymph nodes are a little enlarged, but will keep an eye on them.
Uterus was filled with fluid, but not infected because it was caught in time.
She will stay the night at the ER vets, and will get an update in the morning.
Just a note:
ALWAYS go with your gut!!
I thought that I was over reacting to her not really wanting to eat. Her stools were still soft, and she was just not acting like herself.
I was contemplating waiting until Monday to get her checked, to see if she improved.
That would have been bad.
I called our regular vet, but they were all booked up ~ I chose not to wait and take her to the ER vet just to make sure......
Always follow your gut.
Thank you all for the POTP!
Please keep sending it!!! I know she is getting it
Thank you all so much!
Went to go see Ruby today, she is doing well ~ vitals are good, temp good, but she is still not eating, so she is staying one more night, just to be on the safe side.
I brought freeze-dried chicken, so they can try and get her to eat that, fingers crossed!
She looked so sad in the crate, it broke my heart!
But, I hope she will be feeling better tomorrow, and will eat something.
Please keep the POTP coming, and send all the healing vibes and prayers her way!
