Well, I have been a nervous wreck about putting my 1.5 lb Yorkie, Gizmo under anesthesia to remove several baby teeth that weren't coming out. I always take it seriously any time an animal or human is put under anesthesia. There are always risks, but due to his size I have been TERRIBLY concerned. I had thought about not risking it, and just leaving them in, but I could tell that eating was becoming uncomfortable for him. There was a lot of 'side chewing' and gumming at his food.
So I beefed him up as much as possible, stuffing him with food, karo syrup and dyne this past week. I just wanted him to be as fat as possible for his size and have some 'reserve energy'.
Today was the 'big day', I was also taking in a few Boxer puppies for ear crops. It was hard leaving him. They put him in the pre-surgery steel kennel things, but when I went back there he was already traumatized and shaking, so I took him out and held him until he was about his turn to go in to surgery. Then I let him go, and went home for a while.
I just called the office and every one is fine and ready to come home! Thank God! I am so relieved that this is over.
Lol. I don't know why I had him chipped, he doesn't leave the house and if he did, I would need to scan the cat's belly, because that is where he would be in about .2 seconds.
No joke, they are after him. One time I let him out to go potty, I checked all around for the cats. All clear, so I set him down--then all of a sudden I see one crouching about 10 feet from him. I about peed myself snatching him up so fast. Darned cats!
I kind of want to find new homes for the two cats. I would hate them if they ever 'get him', I would just die.
LOL I have a Chihuahua named Gizmo and hes the tiniest thing out there JK. hes 3 lbs and late last night he started to vomit so I had to rush him to the hospital and all it was that he was constipated.
