    Default Chloes Hurt :(

    Oh boy don't i feel bad friday night we had the local fair in my area which ended with fireworks and apparently chloe isn't a fan of the fireworks.. We went up to check it out and left chloe and den at home (who's sick) with the back door slightly ajar (toilet breaks etc)..

    Anyhow as the fireworks came to an end and we were walking back to the car I got a phone call to say someone had my dog.. She was 3 suburbs away and only a stones throw away from wondering onto the freeway...

    Thankfully the family that found her were dog savvy, and the father actually picked chloe up and carried her home, he then tried to clean the wounds up as much as he could whilst he waited for me to get there...

    We took her to the vet first thing and she's run soo much in such a short time that she's ripped 3 out of 4 pads on her paws (the outer protective coat)...

    We've been given some anti b's, painkillers and they washed it out for us.. I was very impressed with the level of care and highly recommend Vet WEST to anyone in Perth... And the cost wasn't too bad either (not that it would of mattered but it was a bit of relief not to have to part with toooo much money this time of year)


    I really can't stress how important it is to have not only the microchip but also a tag with the animals name and your phone number.. The guy actually commended me on having it, as it made it that much easier to get into contact and get it sorted tonight (and i didnt have to wonder the streets all night looking for her when she was already safe for the time being)


    I just feel very sorry for her, she can't put any weight on her feet at the moment and she's just so helpless, think of bambi when she was first trying to stand up/walk.. its just not like my chloe

    bit of an update, i had to take her back today.

    . She hadn't gone to the toilet in the last 48 hrs and i was worried about it... Her bowel is full and ready to go (she's just a little reluctant to crouch down and go due to her paws, but the vet said she will soon as she wont have a choice)

    He believes she has pee'd and we haven;t noticed as he can't feel her bladder, he said there is a small amount of fluid in her stomach but it feels like a normal amount (cats, dogs and humans have it) and she allowed him to prod without squirming/yelping etc so he doesn't think theres blood or urine in the stomach..

    She has to pee tonight/early morning tomorrow otherwise i have to take her back and start on tests etc to make sure its nothing too serious..

    I hate not knowing whats wrong and her not being able to tell me.. thankfully the vet is really nice and understanding....

    So sorry to hear that about Chloe, Jodz. Obviously the fireworks freaked her out far more than anyone imagined.

    Like Cleas, I wish her a speedy recovery, and all the best with her over the bext 24 hours particularly.

    Oh no poor Chloe (and poor you) The fireworks must have really freaked her out. How is she usually with loud noise or thunder? And has she gone to toilet by now? Sending big healing vibes your way!!!

    Thanks so much guys really appreciate it! I knew you guys would understand how stressful things are in this household right not!

    She FINALLY pee'd!! yay!!! I have never been soo excited about a dog peeing (th only other time was when my daughter pee'd in the toilet for the first time lol)

    Clearly doesnt take much to excite me huh!

    She's been fine with thunder doesn't lift her head or even acknowledge it!! And we've had fireworks go off further away with no hassles, but im guessing because we were only 2 streets away it was obviously a lot more louder and more distressing.. I just wish she had of woken up my OH like she does me when she freaks out.. (i guess nothing beats mum!)

    At least now all i have to worry about is keeping the paws clean and feeding her meds when she needs them... No more trips to the vet i hope!


    On a side note, i was thinking of getting the family that found her and cared for her (as best they could which was fantastic and beyond the call of duty) a box of chocolates, would that be ok? Or do you think thats a bit creepy?

    Creepy? What's creepy about you showing your appreciation for them finding her and ensuring she got back to her rightful owner ASAP???

    Go for it. They sound like a wonderful family.

    Nah, don't be embarrassed. The family who rescued her were probably just as happy to see an owner who really loved their dog.

    Now, a REALLY BIG box of chocolates would be nice. Perhaps you should send me a few samples of different brands so I can tell you which box you should buy for them???
