Biscuit’s Surgery Update

Biscuit made it through his surgery this morning.  The vet removed the polyp in his left ear and discovered another smaller polyp under the initial larger polyp.  These polyps were both removed and are being sent for biopsy results, which we should receive in approximately a week.  The vet indicated that she got all of the polyp tissue; however, the polyp could grow back.  We hope to obtain further information from the lab on how likely it will be that the polyp(s) returns.

Biscuit’s teeth were cleaned as well since he was having the procedure completed to remove the polyps.  Fortunately, no extractions were necessary and Biscuit should have some extra pearly whites and freshened breath!

Doug took Biscuit to the vet this morning and Biscuit looked visibly sad in his eyes once he knew that he was at the vet’s office.  (Biscuit goes to the vet often to monitor and address his health issues).  Doug said that Biscuit was trembling, and it was really difficult for Doug to leave him at the vet this morning.  We hope that the polyps are non-cancerous and that the polyp(s) do not grow back.  It is our hope that this removal will help mitigate Biscuit’s ear issues that we have been battling since rescuing Biscuit.

We are looking forward to seeing little Biscuit later today.  However, due to his kidney issues as they are not fully functioning, Biscuit needs to stay at the vet longer for additional fluids to flush the anesthesia completely out of his system.  Per the vet, we plan to pick up Biscuit around 6:00 p.m. tonight.

Biscuit will return to the vet for a check up in about a week and a half; and in mid-May, Biscuit goes to the specialist to address his kidney issues — we hope to glean further information on his kidney functioning.

Thank you again to everyone for keeping continued good thoughts and positive energy for our little Biscuit.  We greatly appreciate it.

For now, below is a photograph taken by our vet’s office of little Biscuit waking up post surgery this morning.  Of course, I will take more photographs of Biscuit when he returns home.

Happy Friday!

    Hi Katie! I’m so happy that Biscuit’s surgery went well! Wishing him the best post-op as he recuperates. I felt so sad when you said how his eyes turned sad when he realized that he’s at the vet. It makes me so sad because you can’t explain to animals how they’re there for their benefit! Hugs and love to Biscuit! 🙂

    Awwww, it really pulls at my heartstrings to hear of Biscuit being scared, especially that he was going to be there all day and going thru surgery! So glad to hear the Vet got all the polyps and questionable tissue out, and that Biscuit will be out of recovery soon. Keeping him in my thoughts & prayers. Get well fast, Little Buddy! ❤ ❤ ❤
