We just found out today that Akina is probably going to need a Vulvoplasty. We were referred to a specialist by our vet and are going to need to schedule an appointment with them to see what exactly needs to happen. I just want some information from someone who has experienced this same thing with their dog.

About how much did the surgery cost? (I hate it, but $ is definitely an issue, especially a big chunk of $ like I think it is going to be)

Did the surgery resolve the problems that were caused by the issue?

How extensive/unpleasant was the post-operation care and how long did it take to heal?

And if you could just share any details that you think would be helpful to me. I really want the best for my baby, but unfortunately we're not made of money, so I want to talk to some people who have gone through this before we schedule the surgery. Thanks so much!
