Thursday is getting closer and my bully kiko will be going through tail pocket surgery.
The vet will be working on removing the deep infected folds and abcess skin pushing against the actual tail. heres a picture:
You can see abcess skin surrounding the upper part of the tail pushing against it. and he will also be removing the deep fold beneath the tail. according to the vet, removing the tail will not be necessary as the problem is the skin pushing against the tail leaving no area for air circulation.
i am very hopeful this will solve the problem. what do you all think about the procedure?
the thing that has me very nervous and scared is during the surgery.
it will be kiko's first time having surgery, or being put under anesthesia. it will also be my first time having my bully go through that and i am dying of anxiety. ive heard bulldogs are a high risk while under anesthesia, and although ive confirmed with the vet using isoflurane and no ACE, im still nervous. I am sure the vet is very experienced,as he works closely with a local french bulldog rescue, and seems to be well informed with bulldogs.
the thing i fear the most, is a complication Adminsing, and losing my kiko.
i am fearing that so much that sometimes i think twice about the surgery for the simple reason of fear of my bully being under anesthesia.
i hope some of you can just give me any words, experiences, or information that can make me be less nervous.
Thanks in advance!
