As Lady walked into the clinic with an air of grace and confidence, dog owners sitting in the reception commented on how sweet she looked and asked about her ear. If only they had seen her ear two months back!
As if enjoying the attention, Lady stood in the reception area gracefully, allowing people to pat and stroke her.
Lady waited patiently for her turn to see Dr Nan and as she waited, she sniffed and tried to befriend a huge gorgeous Great Dane.
She has good taste!
We are pleased that she has come this far. Lady was examined by Dr Nan and she commented that Lady was a most apt name for her. She was demure and had an air about her. Lady's ear has almost fully recovered and she no longer needs to go for follow up visits.
However, sadly in the process of checking her ear, Dr Nan discovered a cyst on the right side of her neck. Sigh, as if she hadn't already suffered and gone through enough. Dr Nan too, felt sorry for Lady.
The cyst is slightly bigger than the size of a fifty-cent coin and Lady will need to undergo a surgery as soon as possible to have the cyst removed. Her surgery date has been set for the morning of July 25. She will also be sterilized on that same day too.
Lady can't wait to get out of the door after the consultation.
Her bill for the removal of the cyst and sterilization is estimated at $500. We know that after having gone through such hard times, Lady will survive this minor surgery. We just hope that Dr Nan does not discover any other ailments while in the midst of the cyst removal and sterilization.
On a lighter note, Lady's son, Prince, has grown into a fine young dog. He is well behaved, sweet and his coat has grown a shiny black. Gone are his scars from his puppy days where he got into fights over food from the streets, nor the scars from being bitten by the Rottweiler.
Mmmm.... yummy meatballs made specially for Prince by Andreana.
He is living with a fosterer and he loves his fellow play mates. Little Prince was also recently treated to a bowl of home made meat balls, made specially for him by little Andreana.
After news of Andreana doing her bit of charity for Noah's Ark got out, she received a lot of encouragement and positive feedback from members of the public.
She has written a note to thank her supporters and hopes to garner more to raise funds for the animals.
Here's her note below:
Andreana will be walking Prince at the upcoming National Dog Walk 2008 on Aug 3 at West Coast Park Dog Run.Do join us and we hope to see you there!
p.s. We would also like to take this oppurtunity to express gratitude to the following persons.
A note of thanks to JoJo and Chris of The Pet Hotel for taking such wonderful care of Lady during her stay.
To all the Vet Technicians and staff at Mt Pleasant Animal Hospital for giving Lady so much love and care.
To everyone who has contributed in some way or another towards Lady's medical bill, food, etc.
Thank you everyone for making the difference in Lady's life.
