Last week I came home and was trailing blood all over the floor.  I had a big gash in my foot.  Mummy tried to keep it clean and kept me inside for a couple of days, until she thought it was all healed.  This morning I couldn't hop or walk, just shuffle along the floor.  The my foot got all swollen and hot.  My mummy's took me to the vet and I had x-rays and it showed a bad infection.  I have anitbiotics  that have to be injected into me.  Mummy was not going to do it, so luckily Mommy had the vet teach her how to do it.  My foot is all wrapped up in a poultice and I have to stay quiet and keep it clean.  Good news is though the vet said I could have an extra bottle during the day while I am healing.  I now weigh 12.6kg.  I was a really good girl at the vet and got a treat when I got home.  I know it had rescue remedy on it :-)  wonder if Mummy finished the rest of the bottle.
