Lexi had her surgery!!

Boy oh boy what a crazy day yesterday was! Mama and daddy had to take meh furiend Lexi for her surgery to remove those nasty stones from her bladder as well as the rotten teeth in her mouth.

Stones removed from Lexi's bladder May 17, 2013

These are the stones removed from Lexi’s bladder. They were caused by a bladder infection not treated. Her PH balance became unhealthy and the stones were created. The vet figures she has had these for about 4 months, with the bladder infection starting about 2 months before that.

To give a better idea of how big these are, here is a ruler showing inches of each stone.

Lexi pulled teeth May 17 2013These are the teeth pulled from the back of Lexi’s mouth. She had 4 in total removed. The tartar and infection was so bad, her gums were not seen.

Lexi had a mass removed from her bladder as well. The vet says it may have been caused from the stones rubbing inside her bladder. It has been sent off for examination and hopefully it will be benign.

Today, Lexi is still a bit wobbly, but she is definitely on the mend. She had a good appetite and we see she is going to be a challenge to keep her from jumping up on the bed or walking down stairs. Her doctor said no to both. She does have that cone if she starts trying to lick her staples.

Mama says she can’t thank the many people who shared Lexi’s fundraising page and also to those who donated. Without them, this couldn’t have happened as quickly as it did. Mama says Lexi’s fundraising page is close to her goal of $2,500 and we are hoping to reach it as Lexi does need follow up vet appointments and antibiotics so her cystitis will go away.

Could you please keep her in your thoughts and prayers that her mass results will not be bad. That the results will be benign.

Fank you so much eberypawdy!
