The Cone of Shame

Thanks for all the well wishes. Poor Fry in addition to the neuter Dr.  Bucholtz had to pull four residual baby teeth.  When we went to pick him up he warned us that Fry looked pretty pathetic. I don't think he was lying. 

Luckily he should recover soon. I'm very lucky to have a vet that really understands pugs and their special needs. He did complete blood work, had fry on IV fluids throughout the procedure, used a combination of gas anesthetic and injectable and had him intubated until he was fully awake.  Plus he listened to my concerns and acknowledged that pugs could be tricky with anesthesia.  I don't think I'd trust a vet who didn't.  (Note: if Fry's dad looks a bit unhappy too it could be the 600 dollar bill).  


  1. Oh no! The cone of shame! Poor Fry - bet he will feeling better in no time though.

  2. Yeah, dads don't like those vet bills. I try to stay healthy...


  3. Fry will feel better soon! Were glad the vet listened to your concerns,, and did a good job!

  4. Fry, it looks like you are in good hands.
    Gail says every time she pays a vet bill she feels more grateful for the UK's National Health Service.

  7. Poor baby!!! Fingers and paws crossed that he feels right as rain again very soon! Annie bounced back remarkably quickly after we got her spayed, but our cat (Stella) took a couple of weeks before she was back to her old self.

    Tons of healing hugs coming sweet Fry's way!

  8. Oh Fry! He had such a tough day with neuter and dental procedures.
    Glad it's all over. I hope he'll receover quickly and feel himself.

  9. Mom often lies to dad about the bills and just pays them. Poor Fry we sure hope you are doing so much better tomorrow.

  11. Hi Fry! I'm so happy you made it through your procedure safely! It's so nice that your parents take such good care of you and ensure the vet knows about the special requirements of pugs.

    I think you might want to give them some extra licks to help them forget about that vet bill!


  12. i have a vet like that. it is definitely more expensive than the value vet up the street (which sucks!) but i trust her completely. she has pugs herself and knows a LOT about their special needs.

  13. Poor Fry! Glad to see he made it through and all will be well!
