|As anyone else ever had one?
I was super excited the other day. Mom was getting ready to go, and asked Jenny and I if we wanted to "go for a ride in the car"? Those are magical words, you know.
I was standing close to the wall, at a corner and turned soooo quickly and WHACK! Smacked my little snout on the corner so hard I yelped! Mommy didn't make a big deal of it and laughed it off, thinking I was being a bit of a baby. She loaded us up and off we went. I was fine, until 2 days later when my snout was very swollen on the left side and my eye was watering.
We weren't sure if I might have broken a tooth, had an abscessed tooth, a spider bite, or worse. But we were snowed in up in the mountains for Mom & Dad's anniversary, and couldn't get home. Mom did check my nose by gently petting the fur, which I was fine with, until she put a little pressure on it, then I yelped.
Yesterday, we finally got dug out (thanks to Mr. Jim for his tractor) and they took me to Dr. Klingborg.
He thought I possibly had an abscess or broken tooth at first, but when he looked at the gums, they were fine, and putting pressure on the tooth caused no reaction, but putting pressure on my nose did!
He said my eye was watering from the swelling blocking the tear duct so the tears had to go somewhere.
Now I'm on Meloxicam for a few days to see how I do. If it doesn't go away, then we are gonna have xrays.
Has anyone else broken their nose from happiness??
