I had a very traumatic time last week. We were coming back from our walk, just about to cross the main road to get into our street, when suddenly She Who Mustn't Be Obeyed yelled, "This way, Spike - away from the broken glass!". But it was too late - I'd already walked on some.
I seemed ok at first, but SWMBO noticed later on that I was licking my front right paw a lot and was a bit quiet. So, she took me to the vet the next day, and I had a shot and some tablets. He said it couldn't be stitched, and just to keep taking the tablets and bathing it in salt water. Which I wasn't at all keen on and tried to avoid at all times! In the end I gave in - it wasn't too bad, as it meant I could get close to SWMBO and get some petting and a treat afterwards.
It's all healed now, thank goodness - I'm back to normal so we're going on longer walks again. In fact, I've got so much energy that I seem to be able to jump higher than ever - I almost opened the front door the other day!
