I got WhatsApp image of April from owner. Dog is fine and already 17 years old.
This is a veterinary educational video for pet owners and vet students. As the dog is very old at 16 years of age, no injectable anaesthetic sedation was was given. Just isoflurane gas. Dog has survived 30 minutes of surgery and anaesthesia and will go home today. No death on the op table. That is what the owner want and this is not possible in very old dogs in many cases.
The dog survived the anaesthesia and is OK as at 14 days post-op. The owner is very happy. Some Singapore owners will put the dog to sleep rather than taking the risk of anaesthesia and paying for the surgery. This mother and adult daughter took turns nursing the dog to good health after removal of the eyeball and the dog thrives. 16 years is considered a very long life for any small breed of dog.
