Thanks Dr. Williams for responding to my post about Ellie and her
vulva after surgery. It is bad news if her right is also affected.
Our vet
said the right adrenal was so small he could barely see it. My
other adrenal
girl ended up having two separate surgeries to remove both and it
horrible. She was I guess one of a few who required hormone
replacement and
nearly died. Thank heavens for a phone consult with Dr. Weiss. She
has been
on DOCP injections and we are now weaning her off after about two
years. She
is five and going strong. I am terrified to put Ellie through
surgery, especially so soon, and I don't really have another $600 on
hand at
the moment. Her vulva also has a slight discharge. I don't know
about Lupron, but I guess I better find out. Can anyone e-mail me
with the
basics and I will start my research. Is it dangerous for her vulva
to be
swollen? I know it's not good, but do we have time to weight our
Will it affect her urination?
Thanks Everyone!
