All your good juju got Pup a clean bill of health at the local vet's yesterday afternoon at 1:00. No mites to be found. But......
...by 1:30 we were on our way to the far away emergency vet clinic when the vet tech dislocated Pup's hip while trimming her nails. Yes, you read that right. DISLOCATED HER HIP. We were at the emergency hospital until 8 pm only to be told she must have surgery to repair the hip and they are so backed up they can't even schedule it until the 16th. We were sent home with pain meds and strict instructions to keep her immobile until then.
And yes, our vet is paying for all this surgery. It's going to be very $$$$.
From one nightmare to another.
Can you believe it?
And.....don't be alarmed if I disappear again. Taking care of Pup looks like it's going to be a full time job for a while. I'll post if and when I have good things to share but it looks like I'm going to be sitting on the floor with a dog watching Netflix for the foreseeable future-again.
