Daisy has the whitest, softest and fluffiest fur! Ms. Daisy presented 45 days ago after experiencing sudden neck pain and inability to walk. Daisy saw Dr. Lane last month and was diagnosed with a ruptured disc in her neck. Daisy was been treated with medications until her mother could save money to have surgery performed. Daisy had surgery yesterday and is doing GREAT! Daisy is being the PERFECT little lady. Daisy LOVES to nestle under her blanket, and naps quite frequently. As much as we like to hug her and pet her soft fur, I’m sure her mother misses her more, and will be happy to have her back home!
No, this is not ‘Dobby’ from Harry Potter! His name is Barkley! Barkley returned after a 6-year hiatus from back surgery with Dr. Lane. Barkley presented with neck pain and inability to move his right side. An emergency MRI on Saturday showed he had ruptured a disk in his neck. Surgery was performed immediately after the MRI and Barkley is now walking again!
Kito underwent surgery yesterday morning and is enjoying his pain medications! Dr. Lane believes that post operative pain management is VERY important. Our surgery patients are on a constant rate infusion of pain medication for at least the first 24 hours after surgery. They are then maintained by a pain patch and sometimes even oral pain medications along with that!
