I'll post more later under the Allergies thread but I just got Tess home. She's doing fine, a little drugged up from the anesthesia, but look what they had to do to her! Because she's little they ended up shaving her entire side (and one paw). I'll be running out later tonight to get her a onsie --- just in case.
Poor Tessie! What really makes me sad is that I have to have her hair cut, permanently, to help control her allergies. I know that what she looks like really doesn't matter as long as she's comfortable and healthy, but still.....
When I dropped her off, they took me back to the operating room so I could see exactly where she would be. Knowing that she had been a puppy mill breeder they were very kind and verified that she'd be okay to be crated after the procedures.
I sort of regretted having gone back there - it made it a bit too real and I started to panic. I realized later in the day that the last time one of my dogs went under anesthesia, she never came out of it.
Cody was very out of sorts all day also. He and I went to a few small towns and walked around but he kept heading back to the car. He finally perked up when we pulled into the vets office parking lot.
