The Big Op

Hello bloggy friends - I'm back and able to do a little update on what has happened to me these last few days. Leigh might have told you that I was due to have a big op last week...well then it got cancelled! Our regular vet was away and my peeps didn't want a vet they didn't know doing such a major surgery on me so I had to wait until this week - yesterday in fact.

Leigh took me down in the morning and the worst thing was no food!! Can you believe it? Just when you want cheering up with some tasty foodables, the peeps say 'Nothing to eat because of the operation'  :-( Well no wonder I was so weak and down when Leigh brought me back home:

I couldn't walk very well and had to be carried wrapped in a blanket and then I didn't think I could get out of the car crate so Leigh carried it indoors with me inside and put me in the quiet room away from the others to rest. She gave me some little tablets called homeopathic pills to help me recover from the anaesthetic (Sulphur and Nux Vom) and then some more later to help get over the surgery and pain (Arnica and Hyp/Cal) Leigh has a little pet box of these tiny pills to help make us feel better at times like this :-)

I slept in the crate overnight near my peeps but I was so tired I didn't wake up until morning...and I was feeling a bit peckish to say the least! As you can see I have been lucky enough not to have to wear a cone as long as I try and forget about the stitches - I have that little Tshirt again which I wore to stop my pups from suckling when they were weaning :-) Well, I had some breakfast - at last! and I got to lick out Crybbe's bowl when he wasn't looking:

So I just have to rest now and be pampered for a while until I get better. My peeps think I will be much happier once I get over the op as I won't need to worry about bleeding and hormones every 6 months, and Crybbe getting all wound up and wanting us to have babies together, and I can just enjoy myself as a schnauzer of leisure :-) The last pic is from before the op when I looked a lot smarter - I'm a bit bedraggled just now but hopefully not for too long!


  1. Hi Magic, I'm hoping you feel better today and will be over it in no time. You can now just have a life of leisure while you are recovering and then party-hardy later on. Your mom sounds like she's got some great info on homeopathic meds to help you. I've never seen these for dogs before.
    Have a relaxed day.

  2. We've all had our 'career girl' ops. The first day we were exhausted and then it was 'just try to keep us quiet'...BOL!

  3. Awww Magic, sending get better soon wishes to you.
    It's tough being a lady, but you will be a lady of leisure from now on. It'll all have been worth it!

  4. Sorry Magic, tough you had to go through that! You'll be OK, having a uterus is overrated.

  5. Rest up, Magic. You will feel like your ol' self again in a couple of days. Take advantage of all the extra attention and treats :D

  8. I hope that it'll get better.
    You have got a nice den :)

  9. Hiya Magic - I'm so glad that awful V-E-T experience is over for you.... and each day you will feel better and better. It sounds like you have excellent nursing care and comfy places to rest. I did feel sorry for you for not being allowed to eat..... horrid !!!
