...and to add insult to injury....

Small dog has done her other cruciate ligament in, and will be on painkillers for months. Big dog has an ear infection and has special ear drops.

Another £80-odd gone this morning to keep my very nice vet in the luxury to which he has no doubt become accustomed since he got me and my expensive team on his clientele list.

Yikes! We've had two cats snap their cruciate ligaments - and as for ear infections, well . . .
Hope all feel better soon. It's keeping track of who's got what where and when that I find most trying. (My kitchen pet cupboard resembles a veterinary pharmacy!)

Let me commiserate with you...MacIntosh and I just came back from our second visit to Doctor Vet in 3 days!
Hugs to Little Dog and Big Dog though...
Hang in there!

I would treat the cruciate ligament with Arnica & Silica 30 and use Lavender Oil drops for the ear infection. Cost for both would be about £20.00

Animals are very receptive to homeopathy.

Oh, what a rough week you are having. I hope everyone is better soon.

My vet is a young man and has semi retired. I'm sure he was able to do so in part to the fees I have paid him since he opened his office. Hope both have quick recoveries.

Oh, dear. Things have gone to the dogs, proverbially.
Bear hugs (gentle ones) to Big dog and Small dog.
And Blessings to you as you try to live with them, and others.
Would be perfectly happy to e-mail with Scooter and Hamish, if they can Bear that possibility.

Tell Tosca and Flossie that they are supposed to be a help in times of stress, not adding to the pressure!

Oh crumbs. I didn't know dogs could have cruciate ligament trouble. Isn't that what footballers get? Gentle pats to the patients.

Our last vet built a whole new surgery...We used to call it the 'Mickey Wing' after our cat who, in his younger days, was a real hell raiser...necessitating many trips to have his wounds treated. LOL Hope your brood get well soon.

Poor little dears... they are like our children, aren't they?

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

One of our children was like that . Our doctor lived up the road and we'd see each improvement to his house as rightfully ours .
There was a lot to be said for moving back to a state Health Service .

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

P.S. Have you considered putting a comfy cushion on a skate board and pulling Tosca to the park on it now and then ?
The fresh air might do her good .... and it would get you in training for walkies with the flyball fanatic , when you move .

mountainear said...

Cruciate ligament = not good. So many commoaerations to Tosca. Ditto ears. Poor Flossie....and while I'm at it, poor you too.

Realise there is b*^^*r all I can really do but if you can think of anything I'm here (in Montgomeryshire) with my helpful hat on.

Oh dear, poor you-all. (And rich vet...)
