Carly's Story

Oct 26


This is where they shaved her to get the biopsy.

This is where they shaved her to get the biopsy.

Well, once we got the x-rays back from the vet, and confirmed diagnosis from OSU, we decided to tackle this sooner rather than later and get our pup feeling better. We had been told that the pain from bone cancer will continue to get worse, and the medication will not help. It’s not like any other pain, and is excruciating for both animals and humans. We fought with ourselves in regards to going through with the amputation, but after a lot of research, and talking it over with my husband, that was the best option to end Carly’s pain the quickest. And from the time we dropped her off at the OSU Vet, until the time we got the call that she was recovering and everything went well seemed like an eternity.  We were referred to Ohio State University Veterinarian Hospital, and we knew that she would get the best care there. They had us drop her off the night before the surgery, because they do surgery’s really early. But, we got a call about 1 p.m. saying they had had an emergency and got behind, and it was not until 2:30 that Carly went in to surgery.  We got a little anxious when we had not heard anything by 4:00 pm, so I called. They said the doctor was finishing up, and he would call when she was in recovery. So, an hour later, they finally called us back. Said Carly did great, and was slowly waking up, and had even been up a little bit.  We were relieved, but missed our pup dearly. They said they would call in the morning and let us know how she did through the night in their ICU. I had no idea they even had animal ICU!

    Making the “decisio ” is gut wrenching. Itsw a “forced” choice that must be done to give them a chance at a lain free life full of more loving and spoiling! You’ve now done that for Carly.

    That’s so true…it seems like the surgery lasts an eternity. And then when you get the call that everything went well…YAHOO!!!

    Smooch that sweet girl for us!

    Hugs to all!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!
