You know it’s going to be a crappy day when you wake up like this.
And it didn’t get much better for Sadie. Sarah needed the car today, so I rushed her off to a Vet where you could drop her off for the day, and we left Sadie there, hoping she’d get better. They gave her some shots to get the swelling down, and that finally helped a little bit but her eye is still pretty swollen.
Perhaps she got stung or bit by something last night? Whatever it is did a real number to her. The swelling has now moved down to her paws and there was some other questionable stuff, so they took blood-work and we’ll know more by by tomorrow morning.
However, because her eye was bothering her so much, she kept pawing at it and rubbing it on the carpet. So, we didn’t have a choice – we had to get her one of those funky dog E-collars. She absolutely HATES it and refuses to move or walk when she’s wearing it. So we had to carry her and place her on the couch for the night. We took it off for a few minutes and she ran around, went to the bathroom, etc., but as soon as we put it back on her, she just froze. Very bizarre. Anyway – you can tell she doesn’t like her photo taken (below) with the E-collar on. We’re hoping to know more tomorrow – and hoping that it’s nothing too serious. At any rate, you can imagine that Sadie had a really terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day (more photos here).
