Ickis is out of surgery

He is waking up, doing ok and the growth has been removed and will be sent out for biopsy. I should know something within a week. The cost of today almost doubled from the quote I got last week(from $235 to $425); he needed all his vaccinations done too as well as bloodwork this morning. So I'm stressed out about that but there is nothing I can do about it. Thank goodness both Hubby and I got paid today as well as my bonus came through.

On a bad note the doctor called me this morning and wanted to do a dental cleaning on him because she said he has dental disease and may have to have three teeth extracted. :( I told her we couldn't afford it todday but she mentioned that they were having 'Dental Month' in january and february and it would be 10% off so maybe when we get our taxes I can get the pugs done. I hope.

Thank you all for your well wishes on this, please continue to send good thoughts until we get the biopsy results back next week.


  1. I am so glad that Ickis's surgery went well. I will be keeping him in my prayers and hoping for good news on the biopsy!

    If it makes you feel any better about the teeth situation. Pearl had to have 10(!!!) teeth extracted at one point. The surgery was fast and painless, and she NEVER even knew her teeth were gone! Dogs are so resilient, it's amazing.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. We're glad to hear that Ickis is doing well! I had a pug growing up who got really sick (vomiting and diarrhea) and we thought we were going to have to have her put to sleep, but she had periodontal disease and had most of her teeth removed. She was perfectly fine after that and she loved having to eat only soft food. Dogs are very resilient!
    Pug hugs and kisses!

  4. Glad to hear that Icki is home with you. Vet bills are so high around here, I sometimes wonder if it is just north texas? Please give Icki a hug from your puggy friends in Flower Mound.

  5. Sending Icki well puggy thoughts and hugs. Hoping everything turns out good for him.

    Pugh Hugs,
