Poor little Inca, I can only imagine how uncomfortable that is for her, yet she's being a little trooper.

Good luck with the gland removal, keep us posted.

Here's hoping all goes well. We've been through the abscess ordeal and it's no fun.

Sorry you didn't get many replies. Poor girl, I hope her not making a fuss means she isn't in a lot of pain. Some dogs just don't make a fuss though do they. I hope it goes ok on Friday, will be thinking of you. A big :hug: to you both.

I love the little face on the pup in your avatar, who is (I'm guessing it's a girl) she?

Good luck to her and let us know how it goes. Daisy has had issues with those glands, too. No abscesses (yet), but definitely some discomfort now and then.

24th January 2008, 07:05 PM
Of course you're nervous. We'd worry about you if you weren't!! But just think of all the Cavalier friends she has around the world (even the ones who don't know what to say!) and know that we are going to be there in spirit with both of you.


24th January 2008, 08:24 PM
Awww poor darling, what a trooper she is I have everything crossed for a quick recovery for her. :xfngr:

Also sending you lots of hugs as its very stressful for us when they aren't well:hug:

Sending India lots of ((((((HUGS))))))

I hope you are ok too?

25th January 2008, 09:34 PM
Any news? :)

25th January 2008, 11:11 PM
she is still on a drip but did wink at me when i saw her :)

she is on strong meds so not really with it vet was very informative about the op said it was the worst he had to remove in his career ( 30 years )
but he says she should make a full recovery given time and is a model patient

26th January 2008, 09:52 AM
Hope India feels much better soon - sounds quite a nasty op:paw:

26th January 2008, 10:15 AM
morning folks India happy to be home very quiet (unlike her ) not yet poo'd so lucky to be allowed home

vet still a bit concerned she will be normal in poo department only time will tell

but she is settled at the mo on a heat pad in the lounge on her own watching TV

she told me she loves you all xxx

26th January 2008, 10:25 AM
Ah poor little sweetie. She has had a rough time. I hope she has a full & speedy recovery.

26th January 2008, 12:12 PM
Awww poor little girl. I'm glad she is getting some quiet time in front of the telly. Maybe some Vitamin E would be good.

What did you mean when you said the glands were impacted?

26th January 2008, 01:57 PM
totally full but far to thick to be expelled my vet said it was as bad as it can get she also had a lot of scar tissue from when both glands have reptured in the past

sadly she has been sick today and isnt able to hold anything IN the bottom end .....which is a slight concern
so we need to bulk her food to try and get firm poops we are using peridale and are hoping it will start to work today x

26th January 2008, 02:38 PM
:xfngr: the medicine works and India is a little more comfortable.

27th January 2008, 10:49 AM

Oh gosh....just now caught this thread. I'm so sorry I didn't see it earlier and wasn't able to give you some words of encouragement :rah: So glad she's home and starting to come around. Poor thing, that just must have been so uncomfortable for her.

I'm with Kirsty.....maybe you can both cuddle up on the couch and get a nap and some lovin' from each other.:luv:

Inca, I just caught up with this thread today. How is little India doing?

Our neighbor's elderly blenheim gentleman had the same surgery one year ago, and he came through it fine. It sounds like India will, too. :hug:

Edited: I just saw on your new thread that she is recovering well. Wonderful news!

9th February 2008, 01:34 PM
Hang in there!
Every thing will be all right and Inca will feel much better after a little time passes.

9th February 2008, 06:34 PM
Hi Inca,

I wanted to post to ask how India is doing (and you of course;)):)

Daisy's Mom
9th February 2008, 11:35 PM
I hope everything is much improved now. Let us know. It sounds like an awful surgery!
