Raven’s surgery was successful!

Raven's surgery was successful!

Good news! Raven is recovering from a successful surgery! They found the remnant ovarian tissue and removed it. Fortunately, it was not fused to the bladder. There were cysts on the tissue which produced hormones that caused Raven to go into heat. She will have a pretty big scar on her belly and the anti-inflamatory medications should help her cope with the pain. It will be slow going for awhile, but I’m just happy to have a healthy and happy doggie again! Heather and I appreciate the good thoughts (and “likes” or “licks” in canine lingo) you sent Raven’s way. Here is a photograph of our two lovely girls, Raven (right, with the shaggy black hair) and Izzy (left, with the throw back Princess Leia ears), the inseparable doggie duo!

    Fantastic News I am very glad Raven is recovering well, I am sure Izzy is glad to have her friend back as well

    • Thank you, Mike! Yes, Izzy is very happy and my wife and I are overjoyed to get Raven healthy and on the mend. However, we have to keep them separated until Raven heals because Izzy likes to play rough all the time. Oh, to be young, resilient and full of energy! Raven rounded that corner a while ago, but she still tries to match Izzy’s intensity when you least expect it. Hope you are having a wonderful day!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

    Well done Raven.

    • Thank you! We have all breathed a collective sign of relief! Raven has to take it easy for 10 days and her sidekick, Izzy, has to be kept away from her, as she likes to roughhouse. It’s hard on both dogs, but all will be back to normal when Raven’s scar heals 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
