I have an owie. It's my back paw.
I have a front paw that hurts, too, and I've been chewing on it since two sleeps ago. But mommy couldn't find anything wrong there, even when she poked and cleaned and fiddled with it. Then this morning I rolled ovfur fur a belly rub and showed mommy my BACK paw! The next thing I knew she was on the phone, and then we were on our way to the vet! I didn't want to walk, so I got carried.
The vet suspected a foxtail but didn't find anything. So he says it's some kind of infection. He shaved my footie and gave me TWO shots! And two bottles of pills I have to take. If I'm not better by tomorrow we have to go back. But I walked back to the car, and by the time we got home my tail was wagging again! I'm still mostly napping, though.
My daddy also has an owie in his leg and didn't go to work today. He's going to his vet later. So mommy isn't doing what she planned fur the day, BOL!! She says she's just rolling with it, but I haven't seen her roll.
Oh, poor Winkie! That looks painful! POTP to you and to your daddy. Hope both of your paws feel better soon.
Maybe you stepped on something while you were at the beach - there's sometimes broken glass, nails, pieces of steel and other garbage hidden in the sand.
Puffy and I are sending you and daddy lots of POTP that you both get better soon.
Hugs and kisses,
Thanks fur the POTP, Buddy and Coco. Coco, the vet looked all ovfur fur a puncture or cut, but couldn't find anything. Neither could mommy.
Could you have maybe stepped on a bee, or wasp or some such insect? Angel Abby once stepped on a hornet and her paw pad got all pink and swollen. Take care and hope you feel better soon!
Get better real soon Winkie and WinkieDaddy!
That's possible, Buddy. I nevfur yelped or anything, but then I don't have all the feeling in my back footies. There could have been something stingish in the sand or the water that I didn't notice.
Thanks, Zoe. Daddy's vet says he just needs to walk careful fur a while.
Winkie.. i love all you photos .. and sending angel kisses on your boo-boo paws ! I bet dem will be all better furry soon !
Ohhhhhhh get better SOON !. You and Daddy !!
Lucas gets a stone bruise occasionally.. wondering if it might have been that .. from the beach walk ?
Thanks fur the POTP, Buttercuppy!
Lucas, we walked on a rocky path to get to the beach, so it could have been that. What does your mommy do to make it better?
Honestly there is nothing you can do...
You can never see a bruise.. and there is no heat or swelling... but its all it can be... stepping on something hard in that soft middle bit.
I just let him take it steady.. and it takes about a week.. and then its as if nothing happened !
Oh, well, you can definitely see my owie. It's all red and puffy, like in the photo. I guess that's why I got the shots and have the Auntie Bottic pills to take.
Winkie I bee senez jazzi kizzez four U'R pawz♥
You get better, soon Winkie! And I hope your Daddy does too, so you both can enjoy walkies again.
Ouch! Hope you feel better soon!
sure hope your owie feels better real soon
Thanks, pals. I'm still mostly napping. Mommy thinks my paw is a little less pink and puffy today, and I walked all the way around the block with daddy!
