Thanks Dede, I realize I'm concerned about a procedure that is routine but I was still worried about her little pushed in nose and having difficulty in breathing while under but the technician I spoke to told me that she would be carefully monitored during the procedure. After all she has been through in her short 3 years I just feel bad about having to subject her to anything that involves pain. She's just so happy now. And I'm still kind of in disbelief about what happened with BooBoo. I just don't take anything for granted anymore when it comes to my pets.

Your new little one is healthy. If you go to a capable vet that uses iso for anesthesis, and does monitoring, she'll be fine. I have seen the proceedure done many times. We waited almost a year to do our Dusty because she has a hypoplastic trachia, and asthma. I was a basket case, but my wonderful vet called a specialist, and they used a kitten sized tube to intubate her during the surgery. She is now 10 yrs old...fat and very content. > > Good luck and God bless. > Dede > > > > > "When you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are only in the service of your God" > Mosiah 2:17 > > > --- On Thu, 4/24/08, Lynne <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > From: Lynne <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > > Subject: spaying > > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > > Date: Thursday, April 24, 2008, 9:47 PM > > Hi all, > > > > I haven't posted in a while but have been reading all > > the emails.
