At The Vet's Office Part II

Hello TKD Friends!
Sorry I have been a stranger. I came back from being away for a couple of days to find out from Mom that Cookie (my little gray dog) had injured her rear leg. She loves to jump down from this table that she perches herself on when she looks out the window. The table was about three feet high. She was excited to see me but was holding her rear left leg up when she was walking.

We took her in this afternoon and the vet had to take some X-rays to see if her CCL (Cranial Cruciate Ligament) was torn. At best we could hope for a sprain. At worst, surgery would have to be completed. When we returned, after the tests finished, we went back to the office. Since Cookie is the breed of dog that has short legs, the vet had difficulty with the X-rays. After some time, they were able to get a fairly good result.

It turns out that Cookie may have a slight tear. It's not 100% torn but the knee joint is very inflamed. The doctor told us we could wait it out and see her back in a couple of weeks or have the surgery. Since the X-rays weren't 100% definite, Mom and I chose to wait it out. We have to take her back on the 13th.

Anyhow, I just want to thank you all for stopping by. If you would like to see my other vet's office post check out this link here.
