We didn't tell him that we need to correct his eyes....we told him that he would look more chinese after, so he could be in touch with his roots....:)

we are getting ready to go to the eye doctor...his surgery is 12: 15 p.m. pst....and i wish it had been scheduled earlier.

poor guy is STARVING....and i'm anxious and nervous...i don't care what the success rate is...my poor baby is having surgery...

when it rains it pours, because malia, his sister, was just diagnosed with giardia....so now she doesn't feel so well....and can't be left alone..

hubby is taking the trip with bubba to check him into the vet hospital and then will come home and malia and i will go back with him...it's about an hour away...

please take a moment to think positive thoughts for my baby boy....and my old girl, malia....

i'm just a bit of a wreck right now.

thanks everyone....for all of the positive thoughts and pug prayers....he is my special boy boy...

he came through his surgery just fine.....the collar is a challenge for him...no one slept last night......he had a rough night...

the collar freaks him out --- i guess that's what a lot of dogs do...is freak out with these things.

i don't see how he can eat, even though they modified it....

it's an absolute mess to feed anything but dry kibble...

he's peed which is good, because it's under the 24 hour mark...

hasn't poo'd yet, but i have until monday before i worry about that...

he's knocking into walls...and i figure it will take a few days to adapt..

i don't want to give him the pain pills...at least...not before he's poo'd....tramadol slows down the intestines and bladder function...

other than that...well, it's gonna be a fun ride....for the next few days and the next three weeks.

and, in three weeks, we will know if this worked.....

malia has finally poo'd and it's not loose....it's kind of funny coloured, but there doesn't appear to be any blood in it..oh the things we discuss LOL

and hubby is getting over his cold....:)

it's like a hospital here.....

Someone else here on the forum reccommended them to me when my little girl had surgery a few weeks ago. That e collar is amazing!!!! She could lay down in it without any issues and was able to sleep. The first night I used the collar the vet gave me and forget about it. We were up all night. The next day I went out and got that other ecollar. Its a bit pricey but worth every penny!!!

The problem with the inflatable collar (I think we talked about this already, but just in case we haven't) is that they can still rub their eyes ON things.  It is more comfortable-- what we did with Wicket was let him wear the inflatable when he was being supervised, but if we were going to have to be away from him, even for a minute, we put the regular e-collar on him.  Even the e-collar won't keep Malia from licking his eyes so don't leave them alone together at all.

Glad the surgery went ok-- I know how hard the recovery is.  Just hang in there.  I can tell you that I took tramadol for 8 years, it's a very safe pain pill (non-narcotic).  I have heard that it can cause constipation, so I guess it's smart to wait for him to poop.  I hope its soon so the little guy can have his pill.  Keep us posted.

well, he's like a little linebacker, this one....

he just charges into anything...me or the wall or the carpet....trying to get to his eyes...

unfortunately, we don't dare take this thing off...he is way too fast...and he simply cannot touch his eyes which are all stitched up....

he can't play with malia...he can't rough house...he can't be a normal little boy of two right now.

i would dearly love to take the collar off if only for feeding...what a mess that is. thanks for the link to the inflatable one. we did look at it and it was discussed during the 'oh darn...he needs surgery phase'....Smile but it won't keep his paws away from his eyes and he's simply too fast.

if it were just dry kibble, then we'd be fine...

but he has to take the same medicine that malia is on and that comes in powder..what a mess.

once the med situation is over, then we can feed both meals in kibble and some boiled chicken...

he hasn't figured out how to drink...

he bangs into things and can't figure out how to pee....

so 'sleepless in seattle' most definitely applies...but it isn't a love story right now.

right now, i'd like to hire in house care for this little boy.

who would think that 18 lbs....could be so strong.

last night, he was sleeping ON my head, since we're kind of leery about putting him in his kennel.

although...i think we are going to have to...because he is a danger to himself at sleep time..

and now that he's pooped, yes, at night we will give him the tramadol...

in three weeks, after his stitches are removed, i will be checking into a locked ward Smile
