I just wanted to post an update on Portia's visit to Brittmoore Animal Hospital (BAH) yesterday. She was quite the Primadona as she waited for her name to be called. She was one of many purebred dogs in the waiting room chocked full of Irish Wolfhounds, Black Russian Terriers (which made her look like a chihuahua), Cavaliers and very pregnant English Bulldogs...LOL. She just sat regally with ears alert (in her diaper haha) looking at all the odd bloaks, of course, none as well behaved as her!
Dr. Dikeman, who has been at BAH since 1970, did her exam which involved a speculum and a blood draw but she never flinched! Of course, a true princess NEVER does! He actually thought by exam she was a little further along than day 3 or 4 of bleeding but would wait on lab results to confirm.
Dr. Dikeman called me this morning at 8:00 am and reported she is very early in her cycle and we can wait for 3-4 more days for another progesterone level.
Most likely, we are looking at next week for surgery but stay tuned as I will keep you all updated.
Enjoy the Super Bowl! Grab the kleenex box for the Clydesdale commercial!
