Hi there

Thanks for all your very kind comments about our 12 year old Max.

As I've mentioned, he's had acute reoccuring anal gland problems - so tomorrow he's having them removed.

We've weighed up the risks and potential benefit for him and it's the best way forward.

Should be about an hour op - the vet is very aware of his mild heart condition - and of course the fact that he's an 'old boy' - so fingers crossed.

I'll be picking him up Tuesday evening UK time.

So stand by for news.

This pic was taken last Friday as he enjoyed the winter sun streaming through the window. He rather likes doing that. The wise old chap!

Thanks again for the comments.

Lots of good thoughts for Max.

It's absolutely pointless to say don't worry, but modern specialised anaesthetics are very good. Vets can reverse them very quickly, if needs be.

Hi there

Max came through OK.

The vet said the operation went as planned and there was no complication from Max's heart.

He came home last night - still wobbly from the anaesthetic - and scoffed a meal!

He's obviuosly quite sore but he's doing very well.

I'll keep you updated and thanks again for all the good wishes.

Wonderful news, I'm glad he is ok. Big kisses and healing thoughts to Max. What a brave boy.
