Born with a deformed left ear. Cosmetic surgery? Or languish in a pet shop for weeks?  Toa Payoh Vets Shih Tzu. Uterine inertia. 71st day, no contraction. Caesarean. Toa Payoh Vets.
tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)225. Apr 22, 2005. Singaporeans don't usually buy Chihuahuas with a deformed ear.  Pedigreed Chihuahua, 6 weeks old, was born with a left deformed ear. If the right ear has a similar shape, it may find a good home.   tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)224. Apr 20, 2005. Uterine inertia, 71st day. If Caesarean is delayed for a few more days, pups will die.  Breeder had shampoo in his car! Vet said the dam needed to be bathed as its face was terribly dirty. How could she nurse the pups comfortably if she was not clean?

tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)223. Apr 18, 2005.  Caesarean was within 1 hour, yet the 5th puppy was not breathing well.  It was hard to extricate from deep inside the womb and had breathed in amniotic fluid. The best way to deal with this is to suck out the fluid, if you know how. tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)222. Apr 18, 2005.  58th day. Wasted too much time pulling out stuck large pup instead of Caesarean. Water bag had dead puppy - body bluish tinged. 2nd stilborn was large but probably drowned in amniotic fluid. 1/4 alive.   
A top Singapore breeder knows how to rear vigorous and breed top quality Chihuahuas. Toa Payoh Vets, Singapore. Toa Payoh Vets. 3rd pup - placenta wrapped round its body, behind chest. would have died if not for Caesarean.
tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)221. Apr 17, 2005.  The rounder the head, the better the quality for Chihuahua lovers. No. 1 is the middle pup.  A pleasure for the Caesarean vet to see them well cared for 6 weeks later. tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)220. Mar 4, 2005.  A keen observation of dystocia by a top breeder saved all 3 Chihuahua pups.
3-year-old Golden Retriever. Large face tumour. Toa Payoh Vets, Singapore Toa Payoh Vets, small animal operating room, Singapore.
tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)219. Legs very heavy on seeing the vet.  Had to be pulled out of the kennel for vet to check.  No facial paralysis or wound breakdown. Well cared for by the breeder. tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)218. Glass walls make a very small operating room a more pleasant place, less claustrophobic area to perform surgery.

tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)217. Will the surgery be successful or will there be a big hole in the face? A paralysed left lip and drooping eyelid may be the result of this surgery. tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)216. Veterinary Surgery. Which is the best way to stitch up a large circular defect?
3-year-old Golden Retriever. Large face tumour. Toa Payoh Vets, Singapore 3-year-old Golden Retriever. Large face tumour. Toa Payoh Vets, Singapore
tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)215. If the surgery goes right, everybody is happy. There are many risks in tackling this type of surgery where there is not much skin to cover the large circular gap. tpvets_logo.jpg (2726 bytes)214. I prefer not to suggest surgery for this dog when I saw her. The breeder requested the dog to be operated.
