|Thank goodness for doggy pain medicine!|
|Our poor baby.|
By the way, I'd like to recommend Dr. Dickinson in Ooltewah if you're looking for a good vet! This is his description of the x-ray below: Gun shot. Ruptured trachea. Massive subcutaneous emphysema. Collapsed left lung. 2 broken ribs....... And of course, bullet fragment. (and microchip).
|One of the vet's X-rays|
|Looking much better on Friday - see tail wagging?|
|Enjoying all the attention!|
|On Sunday the drip is out but still draining from the thoracic cavity (somewhere!)|
|Looking forlorn that she has to go back into the cage!|
|She came home on Monday late afternoon but here she is back in hospital on Tuesday.|
Now I have to dodge a bullet myself - $$$! If you don't see another posting, you'll know I didn't survive!
|Poor baby got a blood clot, paralyzing her hind legs. Poor prognosis, but Dr. is willing to try coumadin. Later: This is the last photo of her....sadly, we had to put her to sleep after things didn't look good at all...RIP, my sweet, precious doggy!|
