Took Lady to the vet on Saturday and got full marks for my 1st aid skills and honor roll for my bandaging skills (no swolen paw). No sign of infection, all the vet had to do was trim the ragged bit of claw that I couldn't bring myself to cut off. What a traumatic experience for Lady though. She's really strong from all the outdoor exercise she gets so it took both me and Beena, my daughter, to hold her down for the vet. Not doing that again. Talked it over with the vet and with G-Man when I got home and we decided that if Lady tears her dew claw again, they're both coming off. The vet said he'd do the operation for about $250. Considering the office visit each time costs about $60, that seems reasonable.
If you're green, you're growing...if you're ripe, you're rotting!
I try to greet the world like my pets do...boundless enthusiasm, intense curiosity and no concept of yesterday and tomorrow.
