Epulis - Sasha

:hello:

Well lardy arse has to go and have her epulis removed on 19th August. Not too bad considering it was a year half ago that she last had it done.

She is starting to stiffen up on the old back legs now, definitely age starting to kick in, but at only 6 I was hoping it wouldn't start so early. Glucosamine here we come!

Will post some photos up shortly. :love:

Im sure you are not looking forward to that Karen. Does Tizzy fret when Sasha is not around?

Yes Helen she does. Sasha doesn't bat an eyelid if Tizzy is out of the house, she enjoys the peace and quiet, but Tizzy doesn't do anything if Sasha isn't involved.

It's going to be hard keeping her occupied all day!

Re: Epulis - Sasha

Well Sasha had her epulis removed yesterday (I got the wrong day!) She was very sore and uncomfortable in the evening and the vet has said she can't have a stick for at least three weeks! I haven't broken that bit of news to her yet! Apparently the epulis was very bad so a lot has had to be cut away. Poor wee lamb.

These photos were taken last night when she was feeling a little sorry for herself.

Re: Epulis - Sasha

She is recovering well thanks Helen. Just got to get her to understand she cant play tuggies with Tizzy just yet. Found her playing with the frisbee in the garden today!!

She is loving the tinned chappie etc, think I will have probs getting her back on to JWB!

Am going to post some more photos up in the next couple of days.

Re: Epulis - Sasha

"An epulis is a tumor of the periodontal ligament, which is the structure that holds the tooth in place. Epulides are the most common benign oral tumors in dogs; cats rarely have benign oral tumors. These rumors occur in dogs of any age, but they are generally found in middle-age dogs over six years old. They are more common in brachycephalic or short-nosed breeds; boxers have a higher incidence of fibromatous epulis. There is no specific cause identified."

it's basically like the gums have grown over the teeth if you know what I mean, sometimes the excess is cut off, sometimes cauterized - Polo had his done by cauterisation last year while he was already under anaesthetic for an x-ray.

Re: Epulis - Sasha

Awwwww sounds like she is recovering well and is getting back to her old self.

Kirei was due to have hers done next week:sad: I had already booked the week off work so that i could be home with her - don't know what i will do with myself now. Still going to take the week off - i think maybe some days out for Henry & Busta are in order. Some trips to the seaside and to Epping Forest.

Give her a big hug from me:bighug:

Re: Epulis - Sasha

She is doing really well Helen thanks. She goes back to the vet on 4th so hopefully she can go back on to normal food then. She is still on pain meds just now though, but I have now halved the tablets to reduce the dose and give her a longer time on them rather than just stopping them.
