Unhappy ++ Thoughts for our old pup, Shane, Gingival hyperplasia :-(

Hi all---

Wondered if we could have some positive thoughts and vibes (or prayers) sent our way as Shane, our 14 year old senior pup goes in for surgery (today) for Gingival hyperplasia (gums grow over teeth) :-(

Any surgery is scary, and at his age, we are looking to relieve his discomfort. We have confidence in our vet and know that every day with Shaney has been a blessing :-)

As a heads up to those using cyclosporine/Atopica: our oral surgeon (vet) told us it was a side effect from the med he took over 6 years ago (immuno-suppressants, especially cyclosporine or Atopica, according to vet, which, he is again on for pre and post surgery infection protection) and it took only a few months to accrue in his mouth (our normal vet was to monitor and then moved, but said no cause for alarm). It is not cancerous and he eats his food well (we wet his food and supplement with chicken and rice bland). His blood work for pre-surgery came back great (actually much improved kidney function) so we have great hopes of a healthy recovery!

Thanks for the venue to rant and soapbox :-)

Hope everything goes well for your good looking guy. My 15 year old dog gets a cyclosporine ointment 2x a day in his eyes for his keratoconjunctivitis sicca (ointment is called Optimmune). I wonder if it would affect him similarly? Maybe I should check.
