Mummy taked me to hospital at 8.20 in morning. We seed the nurse first. Mummy said she was really scared about injection to make me go sleepy so vet Alison came to talk to mummy and have a look at my leggy.
She agreed with vet Emma that there was chance me had torn my cruciate ligament because of the pain and because my kneecap felt loose. She said they really needed to know what be happening inside my leggy and it be hard to do x ray when doggy awake as they has to put leggy in positions which may make it more hurty. Mummy realise it was best to find out what problem be, and Alison promised mummy she take super duper care of me cos she be there night when Oscar was at hospital and she understood why mummy be scared.
Me went with Alison to room with lots of cages. Me had cage. Soon lady gived me something called pre med. It maked me feel little bit sleepy. Later on, they took me to another room and shave bit of my leg fur. Then they put sharp thing in my leggy, then me be really tired, zzzz.
When me waked up me was back in crate! Nurse said me be good girl and to have a little snooze then me could have some food. Me be excited cos me no had had any foods since my lunch the day before as me had to have empty tummy for sleep injection.
After me had had a sleepy, some food and a bit more sleepy, mummy was back to get me. Me was excited to see her, but me pretended little bit that me be cross with her for leaving me there, so me cuddled nice nurse instead.
Vet Alison had phoned mummy after x rays to explain what be wrong with my leggy. When me fell and did splits, me wrenched my knee, and the cartilage (which be like soft bone) between my knee and my shin bone came away, leaving a bigger gap between my knee and my shin bone than supposed to be. Luckily for my, the ligaments held, so me no got to have opawation, phew!
Bad news be that me has to have TWO WEEKS complete bed rest! No running round at home, out to toilet in garden on lead, no walkies, no puppy class, no ringcraft. Me is fed up. Me wished me no did counter surfing.
Me has new tablets to take for 5 days, and me has to go to vet hospital to have injection every Friday for a month of stuff that be called Cartrophen to help repair soft cartilage stuff.
This be my sad face when me come home and mummy telled me about bed rest.
Me did my best pathetic puppy face but she still said me has to rest lots. Do you see my bandage. It no be there now and that be where my leggy shaved. Me has skinny legs under all my furs hey?
Me was still sulking with mummy. Me no wanted to have photo taken.
Me thinks me might go visit Archie, cos he be having to stay in bed too cos he be having two bad knees. We can be bored together.
Harry still have sore paw. Mummy and daddy going to shave sore bit in a minute. Maybe he has to go to vet on Monday for anti biotics. Vets be rich thanks to us!
