Aoife is fine :-)


:-) Yeah, the doctor just called and Aoife is doing well and recovering nicely. The did the elongated soft palate surgery, removed the glands on either side of her palate and widened her nostrils. However, he did say he was not able to fix the problem entirely. I'm taking that to mean that she is still breathing loud. He said that she must have a structural issue that he can't see so he can't repair it. I'll get further details when I see the surgeon tomorrow.

They have visiting hours and owners are allowed to visit their pets twice a day for twenty minutes. It just about killed me to leave her this morning so I'm not sure if I'm going to visit her tonight or not. If her recovery goes well, I can pick her up tomorrow.

Here's a cheer for Aoife!!!! I am glad she is recovering nicely and should be home soon. I remember what it was like to leave my furbaby at the animal hospital after surgery (for bloat) and it nearly killed me too :(. But she'll be with you soon.

So glad that Aoife is doing well. Our beloved Sidney had the same surgery when he was a puppy. He never seemed to have a breathing problem after that and he lived to be 14...we sadly just lost him in July. Sid didn't take to long recovering from that surgery either, he didn't even have to wear a cone!
Pug kisses!

So glad to hear that your pup is recovering from the surgery. Hope he is home soon.

Your St. R. is looking great! Can't wait to see it finished!

It's so upsetting leaving pets at the surgery. Probably a wise move not visiting as she would have wanted to come home with you. Hope she recovers well with lots of love and cuddles from her Mum.

Get better soon Aoife!
I hope the surgery makes a significant improvement, even if it doesn't "fix" the problem entirely.
