I hope your Friday is going well. I can’t wait for this day to be over so I can get home to Holly.
She has been with us 7 weeks now and has become such a wonderful part of our family. We love her so much. She is so much fun and such a good dog. We are blessed to have been able to rescue her.
However, Holly needed to be spayed and have some baby teeth surgically removed because her old people never had this taken care of.
So yesterday Holly went in to have these things done. It was a stressful day for us. Small dogs sometimes don’t do well with surgeries, and we were very scared.
She made it through fine but she had to have 6 teeth removed. Ouch. And she is in clear pain from the spay and the teeth. She is a cone head for 10 days and she hates it. Of course. We hate it too!
When we are there we take the cone off. But only when we are right there. I would never chance her ripping out her stitches.
So she was snuggled up on the couch last night, most uncomfortable. Whimpering and whining and clearly in pain. Broke our hearts to little pieces. She looks up at you with these sad little tiny puppy eyes and inside you know you would do anything to take away her pain.
Tracy did her part by keeping her warm.
She wasn’t to keen on eating last night… who would be after 6 teeth being removed? So we had to give her a nutritional supplement to keep her sugar up. Small dogs like this can and do suffer life threatening seizures when they don’t eat and their blood sugar drops. I already knew about it but the vet specifically warned me about it yesterday which scared the crap out of me when she wouldn’t eat. She made it through the night and with a LOT of coaxing we got her to eat this morning.
I gave her pain meds before I left so she will sleep for a long time. But you can see why I am hoping this day will hurry up! I need to get home and take care of my baby. I hope she is feeling better when I get home.
If you could all send up some light, love and prayers for this little one today that would be appreciated.
Until next time…
Carmen and the Primcats
