Poorly pup........


We just got Small Dog back and settled in her crate.  She sat on my lap in the car all the way home, trembling and shaking, making little whimpering noises in her throat.  She's asleep now and we're keeping a close eye on her to make sure she's ok.

She walked out of the vet's surgery, but is very wobbly and keeps falling over which is heart-wrenching to watch.  We have to administer super-strength painkillers for the next few days, as well as antibiotics for a week, but the good news is that all her stitches are dissolvable, so she won't have to go back to have them removed.


So we're on full-time nursing care for the next 24 hours then hopefully she'll look and feel a bit more like herself, rather than a  small, partially-shaved zombie. 


Thanks to everyone who has sent Small Dog 'Get Well Soon' messages. She will post a reply as soon as she's able.  In the meantime I'd better go and tuck her in with her blanky in case she gets a chill in her poorly leg....

so glad everything worked out fine! ....and that this problem is now resolved, hopefully for good.
As more & more people opt for corrective surgeries for their furbabies rather than the old way of putting the animal to sleep & getting another, I think we'll see some of the pet insurance premiums come down in price.
Now if only the tax departments would consider allowing us to use our babies as dependents.....

Thanks Karin....

I think her road to recovery is not going to happen overnight.
We're still reeling from the cost of the surgery which we had to pay yesterday but hopefully we'll be able to claim most of it back on her pet insurance.
