Darlings home!

Post by Hayley on Fri Oct 10, 2014 6:24 pm

First topic message reminder :

She was doing very well today and they decided she was ready to come home. Her hip is doing really well so the sling is off and she is now just on strict rest, anti-b and pain killers. I've not seen her stand up herself yet, only the front end. But i have a very soft pillow in the crate so might be too unstable for her? It was nice vet who was in and she was just gushing about Lexi, she said she'd really bonded with her and she was the best patient happy She was telling me how she would go in and sit with her in the kennels if it was quiet to see if she could get her to eat, and she finally did. I'm so happy that she was there, so i'm gonna send her a card in a bit when Lexi is feeling a bit stronger.

She is currently lying sleeping after her dinner, half a can that took 10 mins to eat, but has drank too so i'm happy happy shes just very sorry for herself.

They never mentioned bringing her back, the nice vet just said "make sure and call me to let me know how shes getting on"

I'm assuming that they will only want to see her if there is a problem. They are the kind of vets who let the owners know stuff, they don't correct you and they actually listen to you - they let you look after your pet and trust you to know things about them. Either thats their ethos or they have a big "WARNING - Knows more than she should" on the notice board ha. Weeeeh talking about the vets reminded me of bunny now i miss it hahaa

Poor bunny!

Vets like that are worth their weight in gold!

Do you have a beach near by? I found salt water & swimming  wonderful for Jess's leg/wound.

Gentle yet therapeutic.

I have a beach but it's a good 30 min drive. I was considering a bath tub full of warm water and salt cause she does need a bath she's quite stanky but I don't want to stress her. Going to look at a hydrotherapy session!

Hydrotherapy might be good, but ask your vet (the good one) if it's recommended for her type of injury.
