Just thought id lett you know what my poor lil Izzy bear has been through over the last couple of days. giddy little kipper manage to fall off the sofa and badly damage her knee :eek:. So our lives have been turn upside down for the past few days. I took her to another vet like i said i was going to and they have been absolutley fab:) They had her in on thursday to take sum xrays, they told me she had crushed the bone at the top of her tibial bone and dislodged her knee cap, they also thought she had torn her crutiate ligament but when they operated they said it didnt need repairing. she went in yesterday for he operation which was agonising for me i blubbered every time i took her to the vets:cry2: They looked after her brilliantly and actually treated her like she was their own. When i picked her up she had a cone on (which she doesnt like!) and a bandana wrapped round her neck, they even put a bandage round the led of her teddy she took with her:). Its going to be a long drawn out injury i think, bed rest for the first two weeks which after the first night does'nt look too promising and intense physio to get her back using her back leg again. I carnt believe a few days ago i had a mad rushing back and forth lil puppy who is now hobbling around disorentated from a big cone around her head. i still carnt get my head round it all and how its all gone from good to bad in just a few days:(

Oh Kelly how awful .. I really cant imagine, it puts chosing to have them neutered into perspective. Poor little baby and poor you I bet you were distraught. On a more positive note your new vet sounds fab and hopefully onwards and upwards to Izzy getting back to normal. Much love, take care x

Im still really upset about it all, My lil baby looks so vunerable..... i didnt know but its quite common in puppies betwwen 3-5 months . It justs proves that no matter how much you read up or know you can't prepare yourself for everything.

Oh my goodness - poor you! Rosie has the tiniest scratch on her eyelid and that's made me upset enough, I can't imagine how you must be feeling.

That's made me more determined than ever - no dogs allowed on settees!

I hope she feels better soon xxx
