|Dr. Brown fixin’ the patient up|
A consistently sick puppy has been the story of our lives lately. Our most recent veterinary adventures have included a heart echo, a pretty gnarly dental visit and a pinched nerve in her back. The heart echo came back as expected – a mild heart murmur, which is quite common in her breed – something to keep an eye on in the future. The dental visit, although very traumatic, seemed to just be what the doctor ordered (hallelujah! finally something that made her feel better for once!) UNTIL she was dancing around one afternoon and tweaked something leading to the pinched nerve, which essentially left her immobilized.
She seems to be doing a bit better with heavy sedation and pain meds. I have the next few days off of work and am planning to take super, extra good care of her so we don’t have to go back to the vet. It’s sad when they know you by first name……I just want my happy puppy back 🙁
