View Full Version : Inca Hospital Update
Just thought I'd update you on what's happening. there's basically no change (well, that's what the vets say) but when we pinch her toes and her skin at the bottom of her back, she flinches....and that wasn't happening before.
Also, before she was retaining urine and they were having to express the bladder...now she's just peeing everywhere - Apparently that's a good sign (Say the nurses, not the vets!) As that's what they start doing before they become continent again (we hope)
We did see a little Dachs today that had the same op as Inca 10 days ago. She'd been given a 50-50 prognosis, the same as us and she'd only just started showing signs of improvement today, walking all abliet wobbly, but walking all the same...
So there is hope.
She's quite bright and spritely though!!
The vet did mention doggy karts today as well, so...it's something to think about I guess.
Aw. I hope she keeps up her recovery.
That's good news hun. The fact she has some feeling in her toes is a good sign.
I love the photos, she's a very pretty girl.
Good luck and let us know any updates.
Aw, I really hope she keeps it up. She is gorgeous:lurve:
Thats encouraging news. Stay positive. I'm sure Inca will recover for her mummy.
Aww hope she carry's on to get better:higgies: she is lovely too.
:lurve: What a gorgeous girlie she is too! I'm so glad that things are looking up :higgies: Hope she continues to improve :fingerscrossed:
Aw, big :hugs: to brave Mrs Inca :lurve:
Aw hun glad to hear shes ok and on the mend...such a cutie puppy :higgies:
I don't know about being on the mend, she still doesn't feel pain...the vet was very glum, but the nurses and us were being optomisitc with what has been happening.
I guess the vets have to paint a black picture, don't they.
What are your thoughts on carts etc???
He mentioned putting her down if she doesn't regain full use of her legs...But she's so young, and so bright and sparky. If she were *ill* and suffering I wouldn't hesitate, but she's not, she's so normal.
This is so tough.
Oh Incs :hug:
I can only imagine how you must feel. I'd be distraught if anything happened to my furry little brown girl.
I so hope she makes a recovery. It sounds as she might if this dogs recovery is anything to go by.
I'm crossing my fingers for you honey.
Aw she is such a cutie pie! Hope she gets better really soon for you. :higgies:
Lots of get well wishes to your little woofer, she is a cutie pie!
Aww, thank you :higgies:
As i said before:higgies::flowers: to you.
Massive :hug: to you all Inca, Your little one sounds like her recovery is going in the right direction. Vets are always grim about things, I think its a defence mechanism, so they dont get your hopes up, but nurses opinions are just as valid!!! So if they seem happy, thats a good sign my darling. I hope Mrs Inca continues on the upward hill of recovery and is well again soon xxxxxxxxxx
Aww Nat nice to hear that nurses opinions are valid, we are so often led to beleive we are glorified cleaners!
Inca, so glad she is making some signs of recovery, the weeing thing is def a good sign. FWIW, the nurses will be able to give you a better idea of how she's doing because they spend the most time with her, where I used to work the vets would do ward rounds twice a day, the nurses would be with the animals 24 hours a day.
I'm still keeping everything crossed for Mrs Inca x
Everything still crossed for her, she is gorgeous!
Just copied this from another thread in pets!
She'd doing okay thanks, home tomorrow morning I hope!
We've been taught how to help her go to the loo etc, and the vet wants to make sure that we've been taught correctly tomorrow before we take her.
She has to have complete rest for 4-6 weeks, with hydrotherapy and physio everyday, then we can see how she's doing and see if we need a kart.
I'm hoping a miracle will occur and she won't need one, but I think that maybe I'm being too optomistic really.
One thing I'm not happy about, is that she's in a huge room in a cage with only one other dog (A Retriever with a broken leg) and they can't even see one another! It's at the back of reception, in a completely different building to where to nurse's station is...so I'm worried she's going to get depressed as she's only seeing the nurses very occasionally :-(
