Jack's Story

Yesterday I was taken to the vets and left there, very strange though because both the humans took me. There was a lovely lady vet who was all smiley and said I would be alright and that she would look after me but that really I would need to stay in until the next day – this did not sound too good to me.

Anyway they shaved my tail and more of my poorly leg and put a patch of something on my tail which made me feel all relaxed, only trouble was I had to have a ‘cone of shame’ on so I couldn’t lick it off – pah! I say, apparently it wouldn’t have done me any good at all if I ate that though.

Next thing I know there is a weird feeling on my bad leg and when I looked it wasn’t there any more – Oh wow! what was that all about? I have to say though that it doesn’t hurt the same as it did before I went to sleep.

So here I am the next day giving the nice people kisses and wagging my tail, I can walk around without the sore leg, bit weird though but I expect I will get used to it not being there and hopefully it wont hurt as much as it has been. Apparently when they had a look it was a bit of a mess but they have sent a bit of it away to see if someone can work out what has been wrong with it.

I have been allowed to go home which is just wonderful, I missed them all, I have a lovely new bed to lie on BUT I still have to wear that stupid cone and my leg is a bit sore where there is a big line now, ┬áthat will get better they say and look nice when it has healed up properly. Good things I have found out, they feed you chicken breast to eat and give you chicken water to drink, think I’ll hold out for loads of that.

They seem to be very pleased with me being able to walk and go to the toilet with only one leg, I’m just happy that the sore has changed and will be even happier when I don’t have to wear the cone round my head. Oh!and when they stop telling me to slow down when I am out in the garden!

    Yay, well done Jack, out the other side, welcome to the Tripawd club. Storm says it does get so much better and he just pretends that he doesn’t know what ‘slow down’ means, gets away with murder at the moment. Loving the idea of chicken, his favourite was raw pork ribs lol.
