Reba the Sheltie will be having a couple of her rotten teeth pulled out (ouch!) and then the rest of it scaled at the Gasing Veterinary Hospital in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
A week ago we took her to see the senior veterinarian Dr Prem Anand who put her on antibiotics and ran a blood test on her. This week, the good doctor called me to say that her blood test results were fine and that she was ready for her dental procedure.
At midnight tonight we will stop her food. At 6am, it will be no water. The Shetland Sheepdog, who was born in Australia, will go in to the clinic at 10.30am to be put on drips before her scaling which is scheduled at 1pm.
Dr Prem will be attending to her. I've asked him to really take care of her because she was the one who saved me from having my right leg amputated several years ago.
Reba found a nasty would surreptitiously at the sole of my feet which threatened to turn gangrenous. (I didn't know about it as I have no sensation from my waist down.)
I was rushed to hospital where I underwent surgery to save my leg.
"Any later, would have led you to lose your leg, Anthony" the human specialist doctor told me.
I love her very much friends. Please pray that God would guide Dr Prem's expert hands to help him do the best for my 11-year old girl."
