Foxy Ysabel's little girl had her surgery today to repair her Inguinal Hernia & my Mum dropped her at the surgery this morning at 8.30am & was told that they would ring me when it was all done & when she would be ready to be picked up. They thought it would roughly be around 2pm. Foxy is a fit & well pup other than her hernia, she is 6 weeks & 4 days old so my only worry was her age as the surgery was reasonably routine so the wait seemed a long one up to 1.40pm when the phone went & I was told all had gone well & that I could pick her up around 4pm.
Picked the children up from school & zoomed on out to the vets to see Foxy & pick her up. When they brought her out to me other than a dressing on her belly she looked like a fit & playful pup ready to go, she was not stressed at all & has taken it all in her stride. We kept her quiet for the first few hours home but she is now back with her sisters as the vet said that she did not really need to be restricted in her play but to just keep an eye on the incision & she will be checked up when she is microchipped & vaccinated. Modern anaesthetics are so good these days as years gone by it could take longer to get over the anaesthetic then the operation. Although I must stay vigilant over Foxy that she does not get her incision infected I hope that she is well on her way to being in Tracey's arms soon.
Got this lovely photo of Foxy with her Mum only moments after being home & note the little bit of hair missing on her right front leg were she had her aneasthetic given into the vein. She is a little star.
