Hopefully not worse to come…..
Wish isn’t too good…. The vets put up 2 injections that have got to work yesterday. Got to ring tomorrow but there is a small bit of improvement so please keep your fingers crossed that I can either get some more treatment for her or that miracle happens. I sort of got this plan….
When I ring tomorrow I can say she is able to get up on her legs but soon goes back on to her knees but that’s an improvement so maybe we can re-do the jabs, give her till monday and then….
Then I will have to decide……
You know it doesn’t get easier does it? I picked the jabs up yesterday and they said she is a good age but it doesn’t help. I have had her from a few days old, hand reared her with love and care and this will really hurt if it happens. At least the vets are willing to make a few goes at getting her back on her legs.
She is lame all the time to a degree.. more stiff than lame but she got her self stuck in the shed somehow and obviously had tries to get up and its pushed her front legs especially as well as stiffened up her back and hind legs….. I really do hope there will be some more improvement by the morning.
They gae her a pain-killer and also antibiotics and as there is some improvement i am so hoping they will let her have another jab both tomorrow and again on saturday as it’s all 48 hour jabs. The pain one can’;t be and well that’s what makes me more concerned…..
So please could you all cross the fingers.
The horse’s owner turned up yesterday with a mare and foal…. she is lovely but got shall we call it unkind face markings, lol. Talking of foals….
We are now all on foal watch so line up with your keep Cris awake technic, lol. It looks like tomorrow night really but will check her round 2ish and 2 hourly till then, before deciding do I sleep or not…..
The new one has a foal at foot and he will be pleased to see a new one for sure.. mined Flo and Blossom have been really sweet with him. Ivy a bit sneaky bite….. she will come unstuck though as um is starting to notice.
Flower…. she is restless and taking her self off to be on her own but so far no wax up so technically it’s not tonight… mined i have known her wax and foal inside 6 hours and her muscles are giving way nicely as well as the foal is turning.
Just gone and looked and I would say tomorrow night but… lol I wouldn’t put any money on it, lol. Wonder what it will be like?
Flo is beautifully marked and Primmy is solid bay. Last years was very beautifully marked but pale so would have gone black and white. I do wish he had lived and also wish it hadn’t worried me this much an it almost certainly wont go wrong again……
Some of it empathized as I am so worried about Wish….
Oh on the way back from Iris’s I called in to see my mate Rose who runs Second Chance Animal Rescue and took some pics of her dogs as well… She said I could share them with you so…..
They are a bit posh these southern dogs, lol. These were all rescued but for different reasons can’t be re homed so stay with Rose. The last one…oh does she have a story as well.
She didn’t come from the UK. Rose ‘found her and I think about 19 others (but it may have been more) and they were supposedly in a rescue…. but were so bad… really bad and had no shelter either. She got as many as she could passport and jab and brought them into her rescue where all but 3 she managed to find homes for. And I thought I was mad!
Her ladyship ( th pharaoh hound above) had so many problems and when I first met her she was all bt bald from the long-term skin trouble she had been left with in the place Rose found them….. he also is very arthritic but she really has made such a good recovery and is a lovely dog.
Occasionally Rose comes down here for a few days (like me she has a hard time getting away and we have peace here… except for me shouting,lol.) and Diddly Dee the white one comes with as she is a lovely dog but… Work for environmental health and the look she gives you makes it obvious she wouldn’t do it that way, lol.
It was winter of course 😉
I going to try and post a special one for Alba later but we went round the fields yesterday to check all was ok and Alba came too so (you guessed it) more pics….
It takes my mind of the pain IO got in my jaw and neck today. Its bad actually. hey it will help to keep me awake for the foal watch though so maybe its s good thing. Must get it seen tomorrow as there is a lump on my jaw and it’s banging….
Oh lot of pics eh? I really am worried about Wish…. I sort of think we have had some improvement and therefore we could try a bit more but she does have to improve a lot and I not sure she is going to…. Sorry I am so down today. combination of the bones hurting so much ( I forgot the mtx yet again! I do have to remember…) This jaw I wonder if I have an abscess or is it the arthritis I know is in there. Tis some swollen either way 😉
Right you may not believe this but Alba came around the field and was playing chase me with Haz and Slurps….
and lastly…. was she really this small….
Mind look at those growth plates….. She is now about 5 inches above my knees…. Hey your right my dress sense is zero,lol.
You all take care.
