    Just to let you know, Missy came thru her double surgery very well indeed, our difficulty is in keeping her still now that she has had major surgery, very, very difficult, she has HUGE food anxiety and is generally extremely energetic so between those 2 factors it is HUGELY difficult getting her to keep still,

    even the maximum dose of Tramol, did virtually nothing to slow her down and shes only 2.9 kilos lol .

    In a way its good that she wants to get up, but not good with so many stitches, and no I dont have a dog crate : ( before anyone asks and I think she would just go nuts and get distressed if put in one, at her age.
    Have put her in a quiet bedroom and trying to keep her quiet and get her sleepy........seems to be working so far.

    'Bella44' - I did have heaps of things crossed for the massive operation that Missy went through ! So pleased that she came through the surgery well !

    Did the vet get the lumps tested ?

    Regardless - yes - it is a pain trying to keep them quiet ! Keep up your excellent care of Missy !

    Thank you Riley J, whatever you did worked! lol

    The vet was the senior surgeon Dr Stephen Reid at Ballajura Vet, in WA. I Cannot praise him highly enough, and I don't care who hears it : ) !!! He specialises in small dogs and frail dogs amongst other things : ) A brilliant man.

    They are sending the largest lump off for testing. We did not do an FNA previously cos even if lumps are ok one month, 2 months later or whatever they can turn nasty and spread to other organs, so it was best to remove them and be done with it. So she had 6 tiny internal lumps removed, he also removed 2 mammary glands he was not happy with and one huge lump on the outside was removed, AND she was desexed. Her underside currently looks like Frankenstein lol She is not happy at the moment what with her Elizabethan plastic collar on plus dog socks on her back feet to stop her scratching the stitches from that end!

    The surgeon himself said he was astounded at her recovery for a 10 year old : ) : ) I think Ill re name her Missy Miracle : )
