  1. Surgery day + 7 days

    by , 8th February 2012 at 07:53 AM (The rear end rescue blog - an anal gland surgery diary)
    It’s a week since their surgery, and Molly and Éowyn are doing fine. The stitches still are where they should be, and apart from occasional attempts to scoot over the carpet to get relief from the itching, and attempts to get to their behind, the biggest challenge is now to keep them calm.

    The night was good, they didn’t howl, or had pains, but I do wake up a lot. Every time they shift position in the crate I hear the noise of the plastic cone banging towards the iron lattice. I think ...

  2. Surgery day + 6 days

    Molly and Éowyn are getting restless and are looking out through the window, begging to come out into the garden filled with snow. Obviously that is impossible. Short trips in a leash only, no matter how much they want to go out. Still it’s freezing, today it’s -10⁰C (14⁰F) – at noon. It’s so cold that both dogs start lifting their front paws and want to go inside after just a few minutes, so it isn’t even tempting to take them for a walk.

    This night was all right. Éowyn ...

    This night was almost like yesterday. Both dogs had difficulty settling down in the crate; Éowyn because she circled round and round, trying to reach her behind, and the cone banged towards the crate; Molly because of Éowyn. After almost an hour I consulted Christian, and we agreed to give Éowyn ¼ of daily painkiller dose on a spoon with A38. Molly just got A38. It helped, and by midnight Éowyn finally fell asleep. She woke up a couple of times during the night, and at 6.am. they were both wide ...

  5. Surgery day + 4 days

    Obviously you can’t count on constant progress. This night was a bit more disturbed than yesterday. Both Molly and Éowyn complained several times during the night about their accommodation in the crate, and Éowyn still had some pain.

    At 6.30 a.m. they got breakfast and medication, and Éowyn pooped, while she yelped a lot. Molly did her business, too, but much more dignified. The consistence is now back to normal for both, and Molly is now as clockwork again, like before the surgery. ...
