ROSIE GOING FOR MINOR SURGERY

Hopefully this is the last thing that is wrong with Rosie. We finally cured the bald spots on her head--treated for ringworn but was a type of mange. There was one spot on her belly also. Well this one would heal and they a few weeks later start all over. This week it came to a head and has a discharge. Went to the Vet yesterday morning and he is going to go in and excise it. He said that he would leave the wound open so that it could heal from the inside out and would have a topical oinment to put on it. I know that major humane surgeries have gone to this open wound thing. A friend of mine had major cancer surgery and they left the incision open. My little girl is the best thing. I laid her on her back for him to examine her, just barely holding her, and the Vet pulled off the scab and my little darling just shook a little and laid still as a mouse. My schnauzers would have bitten him. When he said he was going to do the surgery Monday and he would have to give her anathisia, I said that I would hope so. Course he didn't get the sarcasm.

So today I have to give her a really good bath and cut out all the mats. I had decided to get her an appointment this coming week to have her put in a really short cut anyway--but that is not going to happen this week. I would imagine that it will be two or maybe three weeks before she can be bathed again after this. I may scissor a lot of it off today. She won't be pretty but clean.

On a happy note, I will be bringing home a kitten from the Vet's office. They have three abandoned ones and I told them I would take the calico one. Should be fun with Rosie and the kitten playing. Course there is more Vet bills in the future, spaying, vacinations, etc. But no litter box. These kittens were "barn cats" so it will live outside. It won't be able to get outside of the fenced area until it is a grown cat--maybe never--depends on how it can figure out the 6-foot fence. Course the baby chicks that the hen is hatching in another two weeks will have to be penned up. My husband says that I create my own stress--guess he is correct.

Anyway, hopefully this will get Rosie in perfect health again.

So sorry Rosie needs surgery. She is such a brave girl letting the vet pull off a scab! We'll be praying for a quick, thorough recovery for Rosie. She is such a doll and I know she'll be just a cute in a shorter cut.

Did the vet say what the thing on her belly is? Is it a cyst? Is it related to the mange somehow? I hope this is the last thing too for quite awhile!

Have fun with the new kitty.
