    DefaultTess fell at the vets so waiting for them to call.

    I went to get Tessa and she fell so they are keeping her until the surgeon sees her.

    After going through stuff and telling me to keep the bandage dry the young vet took me to get her. When we went in her remarked her bandage was already off. Decided it might be ok and started taking her from the crate. He said to get the bandage back on they have to put her to sleep so was wasn't sure what to do.

    It all happened so quickly. The dog in the crate opposite had tipped all its food and was all over the floor.I said don't let her get the food it will set off her allegies. He had just gone over the new allergy meds with me, but didn't seem to understand what I was saying. I was scrambling on the floor trying to push the food away while he stood there like a deer in the head lights with her on a lead.She slipped trying to get the food and landed on the floor yelping. Poor vet looked quite upset.

    He left a messge for the surgeon and someone will call later.

    ETA. The surgeon had wanted the bandage to stay on until Tuesday as there was a lot of swelling. As she has been on Pred they can't give her the meds they normally would for inflamation so using the bandage.


    UPDATE.
    They are going to xray the leg. Not sure if it is tonight or tomorrow. Poor wee girl doesn't catch a break.

    Oh FGS the poor girl. I wouldn't be paying an extra cent more for the extra care she's going to need. It was his stuff up & it's up to him to right it. Hope the damage isn't too serious.

    Oh No! How scary! Sometimes it seems like we walk around under a black cloud doesn't it? I sure hope the fall didn't do any damage.

    That's awful! I'm very sorry to hear that and hope it isn't a big setback. Did she take her bandage off or did a staff member take it off? I would want it on if it was to be on that many more days. Poor Tessa!

    Why would you leave a clueless vet in charge? GRR! Hope the surgeon has a great report - and someone says something to the youngster about getting ahead of the critters to keep them safe!
