Kender's Tripawd Journey

Surgery Day

July 31st, 2014 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

I took Kender in bright and (way too) early this morning for her surgery.  They first did x-rays while I waited to check for any metastisis.  She said they looked all clear to her.

Originally, she was going to do Kender’s surgery first so she had longer to recover before coming home.  But upon further thought, she decided to do her second.  Her kidney levels were slightly elevated a few weeks ago, so she wants to give her an hour or two on IV fluids before putting her under anesthesia to minimize risks.

I should expect a call about how everything went around noonish (Pacific time), so I’ll update then!


Just heard from the vet and everything went great!  She has her pain patch on and she did a one-time antibiotic injection, at my request, so I don’t have to attempt to force Clavamox drops into her after all of this.  She is NOT good about taking medication and I was worried about having to fight her in her condition.  The Buprenex she’ll be taking is a small dose and she’s not as bad about taking that.  I can pick her up in about 3.5 hours to come home!  HUGE thanks to everyone for the emotional support today 😀
