Minor Surgery


We left Mimi overnight with the Vet at St Angel Animal Medical Centre for a minor surgery. According to the Vet, Mimi has a cyst which had become infected and it was filled with pus. So they have to put Mimi under sedation, cut an incision and clear out the yellow fluid. It was only 2 days ago we noticed a large round bump at the back of the neck. It was firm, swollen, and painful because Mimi turned her head away when we touched the area. The surgery is simple and not high risk. All they are doing is to cut away the cyst and clean up the area proper. We are not too worried about the surgery but Mimi probably not liking going without food and water for the next 12 hours before the surgery.

No food or water...that looks like a jail cell. I hope she gets better real quick!

Oh, you poor thing... I used to get big fist size lumps on my sides but nowadays I don't. Luckily they were not cysts so my mommy just use hot stone to rub on the swollen part & after a few days, it went down. You heal fast ok? And btw, how come no food or water us allowed to given to you? Hehehe...

Love licks,
