All week I have been in pain!!! If anyone bumps me or startles me, I scream and limp away. Mom has been mystified...she can't find anything that is sore when she checks me over, and I don't have any fever or anything like that. I HAVE lost my appetite for my dog food, but I am fine with treats that Mom hands me.
Well, Friday night it was really bad cuz Mom has a guest here and she has a dog so all the dogs were racing thru the house and bumping into me. I WAS limping on my front leg, and one back leg, and a bit dehydrated so Mom decided maybe I had Lyme disease???
First thing Saturday morning she took me next door to the vets. After poking and prodding and all that, the vet said I was maybe sore in my front leg and in one back leg. DUH, Mom TOLD her that!!!
So, of course she agreed with Mom about the Lyme disease and so they stuck me and took my blood for a blood test. It was AWFUL... Mom held me and she isn't too good at blocking off veins, so it took FOREVER!
We went out to the waiting room, to wait. Finally, after what seemed like forever, the vet came out and said I was NEGATIVE!!!! Hmm, does that mean I don't hurt anymore????? Don't think so!
She told Mom I could have a tiny bit of Harvey's pain medicine for his leg, but if I didn't eat, I couldn't have it, and to bring me back on Monday if I wasn't better.
Well, Mom was eating breakfast so she gave me some eggs, I ate those, BOL! Then, she gave me some of Harvey's medicine and then she gave me a nice warm bath and dried me off. She said sometimes when she feels bad a nice bath helps!
When we got home from work I was ALL BETTER!!! Mom and her friend said it was funny how that works... finally go to the vets and finally, the whatever has run its course and the dog is better anyway!
But, in the evening, the pain meds wore off and I was sore and yelping again. Soo, this morning she gave me some more and we shall see how it goes. IF the ice that is all over the whole world outside ever melts, we are going down to the lab pen so I MUST be better soon!!!
