Default Teddy

Hi everyone - glad to say I am on a computer LOL and Teddy has had his biopsy today and is recuperating. I have to say I am a little confused about this biopsy. The vet is brand new to the practice and he agreed to Anita's (from Poodle Rescue) request on how to do it and where to send it but.....when I picked him up he had four incisions with stitches. Anita told me that it was what she called a skin punch and no sedation. Teddy was sedated and had these four things and I am confused and a little upset. I havent talked to Anita yet but I am going to call her and see what she thinks. He said if Teddy didn't have SA then he would send the other specimens out to see what he has. Any thoughts?

Pamela: I'm glad Teddy had the SA test done as scheduled today! I hope he's feeling okay. I know you'll give him lots of TLC as he heals up. From what you described, it sounds like the vet performed the test in the usual manner. I have no firsthand experience with it, but maybe some of the breeders on the forum will chime in to reassure you. I hope this wasn't an overly stressful day for Teddy, though I can imagine it may well have been for you. I'm sure if you contact Anita McKenna of the Watchung Mountain Poodle Club Rescue, she'll be as happy to answer any questions you have as she was to arrange for the test. Hope you and Teddy can get some rest. Got my fingers crossed for encouraging results!

Generally the test is done with only local anesthetic and the skin removed is very shallow. It is not an incision, but the skin is punched with a small round tool akin to a tiny cookie cutter. Some do not need a stitch, some do.

I hope all goes well and that Teddy is as good as new in no time.

Bonnie's SA was two small punches with locals. She had one stitch on each and there was no shaving. Glad you had it done and I hope it is negative.

Let's hope it is negative. It sounds like the vet took an extra sample or two so that other tests can be done without subjecting Teddy to another procedure.

Someone recently posted about their poodle having an SA test done (I think it was Sawyer?) and he also came home with stitches, one on his head even!

ETA: found the thread Sawyer's trip to the vet

that is what Anita told me and why I was so surprised to see this - I guess I am being a worrying mom! He is throwing up now - poor baby! thanks!
