Since they were staying at the vet, i asked if Ruby would be in a condition to be spayed and have a much needed dental treatment. They said that tests show no signs of heart worms so she was good to go.
Well, I got a call Friday morning from the vet. She said that when they shaved Ruby for the surgery, there appeared to be some kind of small scar on her. They could not determine what it was. So they proceeded. When they got her opened, they discovered she had been spayed as a young puppy. Probably in a shelter type institution somewhere. I just felt terrible that she had unnecessary surgery. Because of the other scar, this one is higher and bigger than usual,so her recovery will be longer. Poor Baby. She seems to be doing okay in her recovery. She is eating, and not scratching at the stitches. She is taking her pain meds with no reaction. So I guess all is good there. At least her teeth got clean, which was badly needed. The vet indicated that Ruby is probably three years old. She still weighs three lbs. Now that the heart worms are gone, she should gain weight. Oh, and I forgot, she has an ear infection in both ears. But we have meds for that. I feel so bad for her and all that she has been through. I am just glad that I have her and she will have a wonderful life now. For she is very pampered and loved, just like Jack and Magnolia.
I am not even going to tell how much I have spent on vet bills in the last few months.
Here she is resting in her little bed.
She would not look up at me. I guess she did not want to be bothered. I don't really blame her.
