Jazzy please don't make me read back to find out who Polly is. Is she your puppy? Hope all goes well for her :( Sounds pretty serious.
Spring is fully springing here so getting busy with garden, yard work and horses.
I pledge to start reading the randomness every day
yeah vida. shes my little tiny black one :)

she went in to have her salivary gland removed this morning cause they said it has been damaged somehow (probably playing with the big dog :roll: ) anyway, when they opened her up there was so much swelling and infection that they couldnt even get to the gland. so they put in a little drain and sewed her up.

they said what they could see though was that there wasnt actually a big tear like they were thinking. its was more sort of punctured. the hole is small enough that they think it may heal by itself if the drain is there too get rid of the excess saliva. so for 5 days she has the drain and some pretty heavy antibiotics in the hope that all the swelling goes down and the gland heals. if it doesnt then she will have to have the original operation when the infection is dealt with.

its pretty gross cause the drain is just draining to just above the skin so ive got to clean it all the time

some pics
i put this one in cause of the little paw print bandage on her leg lol its cute. this was yesterday after her first surgery visit



after todays surgery




she is recovering really well. shes made quite an impression on everyone at the clinic :) they love her. theyve taken pity on us because we have already spent a fortune and there is still more to come so they are going to figure out some cheaper prices for us for the next surgery. hope none of the other animals get sick right now

Aww shes such a tiny thing. I hope she heals up and no further surgerys are needed. Your like us, our vet even recommended animal health insurance for us we spend so much on them. Our vet usually trys to keep the price down for us too. Thank goodness and knock wood we haven't had any major injuries with anyone in awhile.
Hey poptart we have a friend here who is from Delaware. He goes back for some stunt kite fly every year. We fly stunt kites too its fun.

Awww I'm glad it went okay, she's such a cutie!

My dog had to go into surgery about almost a year ago, because he had something stuck in his intestine. He was vomiting a lot & stuff, so we knew something was wrong. It was really risky, though, because it was in an odd part of the intestine, but he made it!
I'm sure Polly will recover okay, she's super cute! Awww cute pawprint too lol.

Ride more, worry less.

vida - yeah we have decided to get animal insurance again. we had it for a while before we got the horses again and we always wondered if it was really worth it but now we have 3 dogs and 3 horses we should do it again. by the time polly is all better her bill will come to nearly $3000 thats going on normal prices though. hopefully they give us a nice discount ;) we've already paid $2000

the prices of things are ridiculous. 1hr of surgery cost $545 they list everything you have paid for and its amazing to see what they actually charge you for:

- 2 leg bandages (where the drips where each day) $7
- 2 days food $5 (im not even sure she would have eaten cnsidering she was fasting :roll: )
- 15 minutes with vet checking wound $40
- drain (to drain the saliva) $16
- stitches $12
- metacam injection (pain killer/anti-inflammatory) - this is fair enough but they dont just charge you for the meds they charge you for the needle and syringe as well lol ive never seen that before $36

and so on. theres a list 2 pages long of seperate charges for the 2 days so far. its nuts!! i think id rather just get the bill with a minimally detailed list lol im surprised they didnt charge us for the toilet paper i used while i was there

and yeah she is pretty tiny lol shes my pocket dog ;) thats why i called her polly or polly pocket, after the dolls that are tiny enough to stick in your pocket lol first day i got her i could fit her in the pocket of my jacket
