So on February 13th, Daisy comes home to enjoy her new life with her new brother and sisters. Then, on Saturday, 2-20, when it was time to get breakfast ready, she didn't want to eat and didn't want to hang out with the Pupsters. Sunday morning, 2-21, I got her ready and took her to the Vet. They said she was running a high temperature. I told them to do whatever it takes to get her better. She was there for 3 days and she was on all kinds of antibiotics and her temperature was not coming down. They ended up doing a CT Scan and found out that because Daisy was spayed while she was in heat, she had developed a Spay-Granuloma. The Vet said she needed to go into surgery right away. They were able to determine that this was the cause of her high temperature and that it was totally infected.
I said of course--do it ASAP. On 2-25. It took almost 4 hours because the infection had spread. They ended up removing the Spay-Granuloma and then rinsed and cleaned out the infection. I was able to bring her home on 2-26. On 3-7 evening, she started running a temperature again so on Monday, 3-8, I took her to the Vet on my way to work. They called me and said they were going to change her antibiotics and to keep her on them until the removal of her stitches which was today, 3-12. Well, you'd never know it was the same old Daisy. . .I can't keep her down. . .she's made herself a new playfriend, Cloe. They are inseparable. They are about the same age and full of energy. I am hopeful that she won't have another relapse but if she does, I feel confident that my Vet will do whatever she can to make her all better. . . .
