Mazy's Grandma here.
Mazy went to her Fur Doc this morning about
8 a.m. She is having a fatty tumor on her chest
removed. It was aspirated last spring to see what
the cells were. Nothing showed up but fatty cells.
It was the size of Gma's little fingernail last spring.
It is now the size of a quarter and thick. It's rapid
growth has been contributed to by her going under a
rocking chair to her cave. Her chest has been rubbing
on the growth. While asleep they are going to check
her teeth for us. Clean if necessary. We brush them
regularly and give her dental bones every week. As
hard as we try,we have trouble reaching the last
4 molars. We think this is due to her overbite.
She enjoyed her ride to town as it was 34 degrees.
Curled up in the sit and snuggled into her blanket.
She has the butt warmer toasting her too.
Upon arrival at the clinic, poor baby began to shake
like a leaf.
Fur Doc had me put her into a metal kennel. She tried
to jump into my arms. Just broke my heart! She didn't
and wasn't crying when I left.
It must be small animal day. 2 other small pups there for
procedures. 1 with a hip issue,another with a lip growth.
I always worry about anesthesia and coming out of it.
The smaller the animal the more I worry about it.
There is a shot they can give to wake them up.
I did this when she was spayed and had impacted
baby canines removed.
I suppose part of the concern is previous lap
baby who was sensitive to anesthesia. Grandma
here is also one who netters another universe!
They now give me those shots too....
The clinic will call as soon as she is awake
and vitals are normal.We will go and bring her home.
I can see to her needs better than anyone.
I want her monitored closely. The big thing is to
keep her from jumping for a week. So this can heal
and not tear the stitches out.
She hasn't been in a crate in over 4 yrs. but it is cleaned.
Made comfortable and will be used if necessary.
Hoping she will be happy in her new bed in the kitchen.
There is a gate to keep her from accessing the
living room or bedroom. She jumps to sit on the
chair and loveseat. The sunshine and looking outside.
Late tonight or in the morning the weather heads
to the deep freeze.
It was 38-40 for several days. By Saturday it
will be sub-zero. Snow is predicted. There wasn't
any wind earlier. The wind has moved in and it is
only a little after 10 a.m. The big trees and bushes
are rocking and rolling.
If you could keep us in your thoughts, we appreciate it.
We will update and let our pals know how things are going
as soon as we can.

aww...Mazy is just going to be fine and she will be back to herself in no time, please give her hugs and kisses from us and we will be sending some POTP for her too
Mazy, my paws are crossed that everything will be fine. Please keep us pupdated! Hugs!
Sweet mazy our paws are crossed too sweetie! You will be fine honey! Wuvs you and sending lots of hugs to you and grandma. xoxo
We were able to bring Mazy home about noon. She is resting in her bed in the kitchen. Of course wanting out of the kitchen...Her cave is blocked with cardboard.Keeping her away from areas of where she would climb furniture to see outside.
She did eat some kibble and a little chopped turkey. She hasn't drank any water. My biggest concern right now.
She did a large pee this morning before going. She hasn't peed since. She did poop, but it was very loose and stinky! I think the anesthesia and other medication going through her system. She has a big mesh stretchy over the trunk of her body. Holding the bandage on her chest in place. She isn't wild about this but needs to stay on several days.
We have pain meds for her but are waiting until tonight to give her any. They did give some while she was asleep. So hopefully she will sleep through the night. We will update as we can.
Grandma's Dad is in the hospital with another episode of congestive heart failure. Prayers are appreciated. Hard being 1000 miles away.
Coty had a fatty tumor removed from his chest last summer - it was about golf ball size. I think the toughest part was the first few days as he whined when he tried to lay on his tummy area. He was not bandaged at all. The area was left uncovered. I gave him pain meds that night and then the next day but none after. I would not worry too much about eating or drinking because she will when she is ready. We got our paws crossed and pawrayers ready for a speedy recovery. Mazy will be good as new in no time at all!!
Mazy's Gma here, it is the tearing stitches out, that they are concerned about. She is a climber and jumper. We have that fixed for now. Our Schnauzer 30 yrs. ago had some removed. She wasn't a jumper either....Thank you for all the positive comments,encouragement and prayers.
Mazy is now singing a pitiful doxie yodeling song in the kitchen. The maid/nurse is being called....Gma Keda
Oh, i hope you recover just fine Mazy and are feeling better very soon *hugs*
Sending healing hugs and prayers for you Miss Mazy. Take your pain meds and you will eat and drink when you feel like it. Be a good girl and try to stay quiet tonight sweet girl,
Please keep us posted and prayers also being said for you dad Keda.
You'll be just fine just like I was Mazy. Mom doesn't have a crate for Austin nor I but borrowed a corral to keep me when needed in after I had my surgery. She was home with me 24/7 and she had to keep me quiet, no running or jumping or anything really! I made it thru with flying colors and I know you will too. Take your meds like you're supposed to and try not to yodel during the sleepy nighttimes.
Sending you and all your family lots of prayers and hugs.
~Doo, Austin & Mom
Mazy, you are in our prayers and we will be watching to see good reports regarding your progress. To keep you from bothering the stitches, you could ask GMA to go to Wal-mart and buy a baby tee-shirt for you to wear. They are usually pretty cheap and should prevent you from reaching the stitches. It might be more comfortable than the stretchy thing the vet put on you.
Hugs and kisses,
Glad she are home and ok. Having stitches is no fun.
we are glad she's home and in gma's loving care. Hugs for Mazy and Gma, too!
Dear Mazy, just realized that you have gone to and come back from the vet for surgery. Hope everything is well... Love you!
