Welcome to Caroline Cobb via Bloglovin.
Today Ruby had her ovaries removed by laparoscope. All went well, and she has 3 tiny incisions. Recovery time is just a few days rather than the normal 2 weeks.
DB took her out after waking for a walk around the village before popping her into her car crate. That gave us time for a cup of tea without her wanting breakfast.
The drive in was longer than expected due to being the first day back to school after the half term break.
She was trembling when we let her out but settled fine inside.We signed the consent form and were able to escort her through to the ward to see her safely in. We went off to have a light breakfast and do some shopping before returning home.
A quick weed in the garden, bed stripped and bedding into the washer. It dried today no problems.
Ruby was ready for picking up at 3:30. We had to wait halfway to the ward as she had developed a rash. The vet checked her over and prescribed some steroid cream, it was a bad shaving rash.
We ended up buying her a not too expensive post op suit as she isn’t allowed to lick the cream. Painkillers for two days, light food and a post op check in a few days.
She curled up tightly to her dad when we got in and was dropping to sleep so he moved into the lounge:
