liver shunt surgery

well, after many vets later, we have decided to up djangos liver shunt surgery from october 2nd to next friday. he just can't continue for a few more weeks in the condition he is in. i lost more weight, i am afraid he will just get sicker and weaker. we are confident in the vets and his procedure, the surgery is done arthroscopiclaly. we have educated our selves as much as possible with this potential condition and are confident in our decision. has anyones dog had liver shunt surgery? i'd love feedback on their recovery etc. i spoke with a woman with a yorkie whose dog had the surgery and she said she has a new dog, he's doing great. love the feedback! thanks

I wish I could help you, but I haven't been through this myself. I'm sure it's been a whirlwind of research and vet visits for you though and I hope the end result is a healthy Django. I will be thinking of you both on Friday.

Django's mom~ Linda's (lfung5) Bella had liver shunt surgery and is doing well. I know if you PM or email her she'll be happy to give you any info to help ease your mind. She doesn't get on here as often as she used to so, email may be the better way to reach her.

My prayers and healing thoughts are w/you and Django.

Djangos Mom, we would love to be able to direct our prayers to you by name. Could you share your first name with us. I feel so sad about django.

I'm sorry to hear that Django has to have surgery. We'll be sending prayers and good thoughts his way for a successful surgery and and easy recovery. Poor guy. I hope, like the Yorkie, that he gets back to being a happy, healthy Hav.
