While we were at the hospital yesterday,
the dog walker I had hired to help with Pixie called and told me that she thought Pixie might have a UTI.
She said she would be happy to take her to the vet for me.
She's highly reliable and knows her animals.
Jenny gave her the information for her vet, and the dog walker took her there.
Less than an hour later, I received a call from her saying that Pixie's foot had gotten caught in a door
and she was injured.
Pixie was with the vet who called me to tell me that in order to get Pixie's foot back together,
she would need surgery.
He suggested that she stay overnight so that they could perform the surgery in the AM.
The vet also told me that he needed to talk with their surgeon about this.
An hour later,
I received another call from the vet saying they thought hey could bipass the surgery.
They used surgical glue on Pixie's foot.
The bleeding had stopped.
They felt she was going to be fine.
I can't tell you how quickly we flew over to the vet to pick up Pixie.
When I got there,
the dog walker was paying the bill and telling them that she would be responsible for any future bills because of the injury.
I was impressed.
I guess what I had assumed was the car door turned out to be the vet's door,
and, according to the techs there,
her injury was really bad.
One of her digits had actually been pulled apart from her foot.
The dog walker felt terrible.
I knew it was an accident.
She was very honorable.
I was impressed.
Although this really hurt Pixie,
she's not one to be down and out.
Well, in this photo, she was out.
Her paw is really sore.
She goes back on Thursday to have her bandages removed.
Wouldn't you know it? It's supposed to rain for the next couple of days.
We aren't supposed to let Pixie get her foot wet.
The techs there recommended a product called
Press and Seal.
Pixie is wearing it on her foot.
It did keep her foot nice and dry.
She also has pain medication, too.
They told me that it might make her lethargic.
I asked how I would know.
I had to smile when I opened the Press and Seal.
Look at the cute figures on it.
It was hard to get off after our walk,
Pixie's foot stayed dry.
Even the vet techs discovered very quickly that
Pixie is a princess.
She gave them the
They felt it was appropriate!
