My Otto had an operation of the rectum

Indlæg af Maroussia » fre 7. mar 2008 12:41

Hi everybody !

I jut wanted to tell you that last week my Otto had an operation of the rectum...

He had a big cyst of some kind on the left side of the low belly.

Here is a picture :

So the vet (here in Gentofte) said that Otto had to be sedated and operated.
And in fact, this "ball" was en enourmous infection, for the rectum was punctured !! :shock:

Well, since several months, Otto has problems to expulse his excrements, and we help him everyday. But apparently, some shits might have been stuck somewhere, causing damages to the rectum.

The operation went very well and Otto took some time to wake up (he has been sedated by injection : I don't like this technique, but that's the only one used by my vet, so I had not choice...)

Here is some pictures of Otto just after his operation, in his hospital-cage :

Otto recovered very fast !! The day after he was running and squeaking as usual !! And he's still in a very good shape, there is no sign of infection wathsoever.

Here is a picture of the scar yesterday :

Yes he is ! :D He still have some shits stuck and we still have to help him. But the infection is gone and he's in really good shape.

The funny part is that he didn't seem to suffer when he had the infection ! Except the "ball" he was absolutely normal !
