Injured On vet referral

Post by Nifty staffy on Thu Jan 11 2018, 18:41

Nifty is on vet referral for anal polyp removal by surgery Sad
Cortizone creams did not help.
Gotta ring vet referral tomorrow.
I’m told it’s easy surgery but they're concerned of recurrences given her age and where it's situated

I suppose the up side is that I made the most of being at my vet’s by booking Nifty in for her spaying. One season is quite enough for us all thanks Straight Face

Chaos in particular sends his sympathies to Nifty (he had his anal glands removed a while back).

Good idea to get it all done together!

Well I don’t know if it will be done together or not.
Spaying is for end of April and we have appointment with referral vet on Monday for his opinion.
Will see what he says Monday as to next move.
Donkt know if my vets particularly want to operate polyp hence referral

Is it causing her any problems, or might it? If not, is leaving it alone an option?

She’s starting to look very uncomfortable when she’s pooing so yes, I am getting a little concerned for her. However she’s 12 days into her season so impossible to spay her before a couple of months minimum after end of season.
And then I worry about 2 anaesthetics in a few months interval ...

See what the specialist says, but it does sound like something needs doing.

I was worried about Chaos having his glands done separately (they don't do both together as it increases the risk of incontinence) but he didn't have a problem with it at all. Other than his spiralling fear of the vets but that was caused by all the prodding and poking of a very sore bottom early on.

Hey Liz - did Chaos have to wear the cone of shame after his ops ?
Nifty is about as supple as a plank Blushing so I don’t think she’d be able to reach her potential op wound. We’re also looking into medical pet shirt for spaying Wink

He wore an inflatable one and it didn't seem to bother him much at all

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Buster-279805-Inflatable-Collar-M/dp/B007GH3UES/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1515949115&sr=8-1&keywords=inflatable+dog+buster+collar

It did the trick. I don't think it would stop a more supple/longer dog from reaching right round but it was just enough for him.

I think the inflatable ones are much better least of all because it won't hurt when it catches your legs Crying or Very sad

Good luck for tomorrow Nifty

Met referral vet tonight, Nifty is booked in for minor polyp removal surgery early February.
Great guy, took his time to answer my multiple questions.

Causes for polyp unknown.
Her being in season/hormones probably contributed to it increasing in size. He said spaying this Easter will be good for her to help avoid recurrences.
Creams didn’t work as polyp too big and blood irrigation too important (yet again season contributing factor).

Op will be short, only medication as post-op care as internal soluble stitches. Have to wait for end of season hence next month.

It's great when you find a vet that has the patience to talk it all through so that you understand what is proposed. So set for a few weeks time and all this will be done and dusted thumbs up

That sounds about as positive as you can get. I bet you must be feeling happier for knowing that it's relatively straightforward.
