Natalie told me Bianca's surgery went well on Monday. She is expected to be in Doggy ICU for three long days, and should come out late Thursday.:xfngr::xfngr::paw::paw::paw::paw:

Hoping all goes well for little Seamus tomorrow.:xfngr::xfngr::paw::paw::paw::paw:

Lots of love to these 2 cavvies!

Excellent, thanks for the update!

We just got back from the vet w/ Gus for an eye infection, and our vet mentioned she had a 14-month old in with what the owner's called "phantom pain" episodes--yelping, crying, etc. They were referred to Dr. McVey at the U as our vet suspects SM. :(

When is Seamus due for his surgery?

That's so sad. Anyway who is saying this disease is blow out of proportion or isn't real....needs to pull their heads out of the sand. I'm am sad that I can count off 10 Cavaliers I "know" right off the top of my head who have this.

Seamus has surgery tomorrow. Good luck little man! :dogwlk:


I know the frustration, Cathy! It makes me so mad when people dismiss it...even worse when vets dismiss it. :mad:

Good luck, Seamus! Thanks for asking about Bianca--yes, her surgery went well, according to our neurologist. He says that she had a fair amount of scar tissue, but no more and no less than he says is 'typical' in his cases. She walked well today for him briefly on lead, so he expects she should have no residual weakness after surgery:xfngr::xfngr:. She is expected to stay in the ICU through Thursday afternoon---we did go visit her today ,but she pretty much slept peacefully on our laps, and likely remembers nothing of the visit. That's probably for the best, I wouldn't want her to associate any of the surgery with us!
Thanks for the well-wishes and thoughts. We all appreciate it, and good luck little Seamus!

Thanks for the update on Bianca. Sounds like everything went smoothly for her, and I'm sure she'll even better once she's at home. :flwr:

Oh I am sorry too, Aileen -- I missed your post on Barney -- I had very little time on the board the past three weeks due to a heavy workload and submitting my taxes and missed an awful lot of threads. :flwr:

We are keeping little Seamus in our thoughts and hope he will do very well. Bianca was just discharged home to our care today.:dogwlk: She's still very groggy but wags her tail every chance she gets when we stop by her crate. She's pretty much on strict crate rest for the next few weeks, and it will be very hard for her once she gets to feeling better, but each step as it comes. I'm just so glad to have her back with us and I think she kind of likes being home, too!:rolleyes: No more bland boring ICU food!:p (although we're still on the chicken and rice for awhile, lots of pills-antibiotics, NSAIDS, and gabapentin--dont' want to tax her little stomach).

Mike, who's an accountant, says "good luck with the taxes, Karlin!"

Aileen, I'm so very sorry to hear about your Barney. Our hugs to you.
