Yesterday morning I awoke to Auggie walking on three legs. He was holding up his right front paw and yelping with even the slightest touch. He spends the night in our bedroom with the door closed so it seems like if he did something in the night to injure his leg, we would have heard something. So it was off to the vet. After an exam the Dr decided it was not broke and was either a muscle or tendon injury from God knows what. His treatment was a cortisone shot and cortisone pills to be started in 2 weeks after the shot wears off. He also said that the shot would help his skin since he is always chewing and scratching himself raw. He sent him home with antibiotics for his skin condition also. While there we also had all his shots done (Rabies, distemper, parvo, bordetella) and tested for heart worms (negative results) and we bought a 6 month supply of Heartguard. Grand total, $121.00. Pet ownership, Priceless.
OK, I admit the bunny picture has nothing to do with my post, but they sure are cute, LOL.
