Trial Period

Our puppy Maya wasn’t well for last two weeks and was going through heat (oestrus cycle) and kept bleeding. It’s a normal thing for any female dog to experience it twice a year, but Maya was not supposed to have it since her uterus was removed in 2014. But even after the surgery she had bleeding sometime and when inquired the vet, he said it’s perhaps due to production of ovum she continue to have the heat. So it didn’t matter us then and it doesn’t last than a week. But now it wasn’t the same and she continue to bleed for more than 15 days and it wasn’t red in color, but turns brown, yellow and white lately. Without delay we showed her to the vet and he gave antibiotic and tablets to stop bleeding but it didn’t help much and even injections couldn’t obey. He was sure it was infection since all other symptoms shows her normal… and she was active as well.

But since we aren’t content with his treatment we showed her to another vet and on his advice, scan was taken on Thursday and it revealed that the uterus wasn’t completely removed and some parts continue to stay within her and that’s giving trouble now. She got sever infection now and pus has formed and that’s what continue to exit. Glad the infection doesn’t spread to the kidney but still we need to wait and see any improvement on her stage before going for blood test. The doctor has suggested that removing the remaining parts of the uterus could be the only solution for her to remain healthy and peace. Maya is 9 years old now and going for another surgery doesn’t sound bad though there isn’t an option if she wants to be stay happy.

The situation wasn’t bad for her alone but also for us, who has to go through the odour and making certain things are clean around all the time.  Mom has to keep checking her and clean the places she moves, even though we placed cloth at where she lies. It was indeed difficult time for us and was it coincides or not, I was glad for the decision of purchasing an air purifier last month keeping our puppy in mind. The Philips air purifier doing an amazing job right now (not because it was purchased from amazon) and with advanced HEPA (Nano) and carbon filters we experience odourless sleep during the night and breathe healthy air. I could obviously see and feel the differences before and after air purifier and I think now, I should have gone for this earlier. But it’s better late than never. Hope things will be normal soon and Maya stays healthy and happy along with us.

Hello, poor Maya. It is sad the surgery was not done correctly the first time. It is best for the females to be spayed to prevent puppies. She is a cutie! I hope she is well soon. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy day and week ahead!

Yes, you need a more competent vet. That is so sad she has to go through this as I am sure she is having pain too. I hope she can be better soon.

We used to take our dog to Dr.Jayaprakash (JP) in Indra Nagar. If you think that your doctor is good and if Maya is still active, nothing to worry, Jeevan. All the best.

Poor puppy... I'm so sorry that Maya has had such a hard time... I cannot believe that when they did the original surgery THAT they didn't take all of the uterus. That's terrible. Hope the air purifier continues to help....

Blessings to Sweet Maya.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sandhya - Now she’s in hands of JP! We usually take her to another vet in same indira nagar and he was treating her from pup and we had no issue so for with him and only now we got her to JP esp. to take scan and he has given medicine. But we know Dr.JP from long back when my grandparents had cows and buffaloes. And I had attended tuition along with his son once.
