Barely a week since I was at the vet and I’m back again today. I was really off colour yesterday and retreated to my bed even though my mum was cuddled on the sofa. I yelped a couple of times and she had a good look at me: I’ve got swelling on my cheek, I’m lopsided!
Lovely Spanish vet, knee high to a grasshopper, fusses me then lifts me onto the examining table, all 24.8kg of me. Bet she isn’t much more.
The verdict is that I may have been stung as there are no lesions in my mouth or nose and none of my teeth are loose. Given anti-inflammatory/painkilling injection plus antibiotic pills just in case. She thinks I’ll soon be right but i know my mum with take me back if I don’t improve quickly.
Patient update 29/11/2017
Swelling has subsided a bit overnight and I was full of beans this morning. However, it’s been sleeting all night and still pretty miserable outdoors so it was a quick turn down the street. My mum says she can’t take me to the park until she’s sure the halti won’t hurt my face …cos I pull on the lead without the halti.
