My little dog has bird legs and she doesn't even know it. Now I have to tell her she has to have surgery on both of these beautiful little legs. Poor Chelsea jumped up for a toy, came down and started crying. She's been limping off and on every since. Of course a visit to the vet was called for. We've been there so much they know us by name. She has something with a long name called luxating patella. Why on earth they can't just call it a slipped knee I don't know. I think with a luxating patella you can charge more.
She has to have this surgery or she'll go lame. It's just killing me to do it. I would rather have the surgery myself! I made the appointment for March 12th. ...a day I would rather skip. We couldn't do it sooner because the vet needs a full morning. It's surgery on both little legs.
Has anyone been through this with their pet? I understand it's common with these small breeds. What's so amazing when you own a pet, is the feeling that you would do anything for them. It's the licks and the cuddles!
In the meantime, Bitsy has recovered.
She's very happy tucked in bed with her head on the pillow.
No we don't treat our pets special. Get serious!
