Vet Visit



Tomorrow, Mommy and I are going to the veterinarian to get my legged checked out. You see, I have a bad leg. It's weird though because I don't really limp on it, it is just wobbly and somewhat turned out when I walk or run. When I run, I don't usually put any pressure on it either. I have trouble jumping onto furniture such that I usually have to try a few times or think twice about what I'm about to do.


Mommy tried wrapping it a few weeks ago. I didn't like that. It stiffened my leg such that whenever I took a step my leg would swing out horizontally with my body. The vet wrap would also keep falling down over my paw and that really bugged me!

I guess it helped some. The wrap helped give my leg the support that it is apparently lacking.

My leg isn't as bad as it was a few weekends ago. But, still, we haven't gone on many walks or been to the dog park very often. I did, however, get to go to the dog park today. But anyway, my point is that, I don't go out very often because when we do my leg acts up again and then I start to "limp."
I'm nervous about my trip tomorrow. I hope I don't get poked and prodded and stuck with needles. It's a love-hate relationship. I love going to vet to see all the people and other dogs, but I hate to get my temperature taken and my shots! Oh well...I'll keep you updated on what is wrong with my leg, until then, I shall go sleep or play with my new toy.

Dear Oscar. I hope your vet visit goes well. My sister, Lucky, has very shallow hip sockets and something wrong with her back right knee, so that it aches and aches and she can't squat to poop. Mom has to give her medicine and if she notices an attack coming on, she makes sure Lucky is cuddled up nice and warm. I hope your solution is as easy.

Do you think it could be a luxating patella? To me that sounds like a delicious food but mom says that lately she's been hearing about a lot of pugs in our pug group who suffer from it. And I think Gidget has that too.

Hope you feel better soon, Oscar! I think the wrap looks kind of cool, like a sweat band you'd wear at the gym pumping iron.
