Smile Update on Mamoo

Hi and thanks for all the well wishes ! Forever grateful to Gena for all the concern and advice and for generally being one of the sweetest people !
Mamoo had her surgery for odontoma, and had a very difficult two weeks . I took her home after a week because she had started to eat on her own at the vet. Once she got home, however, she was very lethargic and wouldn't eat or drink, let alone want the medicine I had to give her through a syringe. Got her through the night with help from Gena ( thank you thank you thank you) and brought her back the next day.....they kept her for another whole week, to make sure she was okay. She gave them a hard time too at first, but got better each day, and got the medicine and food she needed. She is now home again, and behaving like her normal self, with only a slight case of the snuffles still, but eating! and active, and more cuddly than ever. Dr. Kelleher at the Broward Avian & Exotic Animal Clinic and her staff deserve a VERY BIG REWARD, and my gratitude forever.

If anyone wants more info on what Mamoo had done, I'd be happy to answer [email protected]

Thanks again, Gena!

I would be very grateful to any info that you may have regarding the "Big O" as I recently lost my best baby gal to what I have no doubt was just this. I am originally from the Broward county area and now reside in central florida. My vet (very experienced with pd's, and could do surgery to re-route the sinus cavity) felt surgery would be more for "my benefit" then for my little gal and that it would only prolong life for a short time compared to the pain and discomfort PD's would have to endure post-operatively. He was extremely thorough in his explanations ( I am also an open heart surgical RN) to explain what my gal would have to endure in the long run to only prolong life for maybe a few months to a year. I have 2 other little ones here now and thank god they have no signs of the big O. My gal had it from what we know now when she blessed us with her arrival as it was very quick with her diagnosis and loss. Within a period of 4 months of initial respiratory symptoms. Also Joey, lol the little ... in your link is what is messing up the rest of us finding it..........please copy and paste from the "direct Link". You may have to fill in to complete........internet likes to shorten things also so many times it doesnt give the complete link.

Are you thinking of a shunt? What Joanne's pd had done was an extraction which is not even close to being as cruel as a shunt or blow hole. I would recommend should you ever come across that situation again you contact Gena, as she has so much more experience with this kind of thing than anyone I know in the pd community.

Yes it was a shunt but he felt it would be done more for our benefit then hers. He doesnt recommend it due to the amount of pain and care usually required afterwards therefore we didnt do it. She had lost her top front teeth on thier own during the time of her diagnosis. After 3-4 months of very little improvement we elected to send her over the rainbow bridge as her comfort was more important.

I feel the extraction surgery is not so much for "our" benefit as the shunt would be. With the shunt they can live for years in pain, but the extraction is not the same thing. Yes, they will be in pain and recovery takes time, but the end result is permanent and well worth it. Prairie dogs go through pain with any type of surgery, but if the animal is young and in otherwise good health it can be a good option for some. Odentoma surgery is very controversial, but an extremely personal decision and every owner facing this should know all the options.
