Violet’s Surgery


Originally uploaded by Papa’s Pugs

When we adopted Violet from SEPRA, we did it knowing that she would need a dental and to have two places removed. Normally this would have been done before she was adopted, but since I am a foster home and since our regular vet is an approved SEPRA vet, we elected to adopt her and then have the surgery. We knew that she had some pretty bad teeth and that the two places on her were probably Mast Cell Tumors. The surgery was really intense. The two places on her required a lot of skin tissue to be removed. My vet is very skilled with her dental training and she said that she’d never seen a dog’s teeth so bad. Poor Violet. I got our patient home and we took care of her through the night. Thankfully, she was doing much better the next day.
