Ginger had surgery this morning, and the following was done:
1.) Mammary tumor removed. Harry said it was a clean removal and nothing had spread, so she should be good.
2.) Fixed. No more puppies for this bitch.
3.) Teeth cleaned and one removed. She now has good breath, and Harry says that after looking at her teeth more closely, he believes she is 8-9 years old, which is pretty young for a dog her size.
4.) No heartworm.
5.) She had roundworm, and we have meds for her and the puppies.
6.) Harry gave her face a trim and removed some of the crusty stuff around the eye ducts.
7.) Harry said she is about to go dry milk wise so it is important that the pups eat on their own.
8.) She is now up to date on all vaccinations.
All that and it is only going to cost me $370.00 (Harry gave me the “homeless slut” discount, which is our inside joke for the discount he provides abandoned dogs- we also jokingly refer to puppy mill dogs that were used to breed as “sex workers.”). So Ginger is in good shape and up to speed and on Friday I am taking her to the groomer so she can get the day spa treatment and get all prettified so I can start homing her (if the Mary G. thing does not work out- Mary- email me.) in a couple weeks.
Not a bad day for at least one unfortunate soul.
