Thankfully hers was not as bad as Greta's. They were able to close it with 3 stitches.
Although I know she's been in a lot of pain today, even with the pain meds. Mostly just resting, or moving on three legs. When bird dogs would rather lay, you know they don't feel good.
My vet wasn't even in the office this morning, but he came in just to treat her. I got to stay with her while she was sedated, thoroughly cleaned the cut, and stiched up. I think it's a little less traumatic for them, if they know your there.
Not all those who wander are lost.
Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.
Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
