Well it seems I finally found a good (great!) vet for our little Lionhead. I really liked the vet and we took Coquita for pre-op check-up, vet told us she is looking great and very healthy, but she does not want to go for the op until the end of September due to the heat, she says that the recovery is much longer and worse with these temperatures, so I suppose we have to wait it out a bit. The cost is quite steep (240 Euro....) but I trust this vet so I suppose I'll just chuck it up. hmy: Vet also showed us ways to calm her down when she is nervous which really work! She also told us that there will be no need for any nail cutting due to the 12-14 hours / day of free run of the garden Coquita has, since she is doing her own nails with all the holes she is making in the garden.
