Leo went to the vet today, he had split a toenail last Friday, clean split, OH said it bleed quite a bit but it had stopped by the time i got home. But after running around the park has been limping a little so took him to the vet just to be sure. Vet said same, nice clean split, should grow out, he might loose the nail case bit (My words not the vets! LOL) but in eaither case just some antibotics and he should be fine.
We were also due for vaccination in 2 weeks time so got it done while we were there (His first 1 yearly 'big boy vaccine!) Oh my! The vet put it in near his shoulder blandes and Leo jumped so high and yelped and the vet jumped back! Then hmmmd and hummed saying wow, havent seen a staffy do that for at least 5 years, its usually the more petite dogs like whippets! Then put it in his bum with me and OH holding him still and Leo still let out a yelp! Gosh i felt terrible! I wanted to get this years but then question wether i will get it done yearly now or every 3 years as currently suggested and/or tire test him if/when the need. Any views here? What do you guys do?
Also has some sort of nipple rash of late which you may have seen in my replys to a previous post! (Gosh sounds like Leo is failing apart at the moment!) Vet looked at it today and said was looking just fine. Although they are still a bit try and bigger than the rest, its 2 of them which are opposite in the middle... I said to the vet he is still scratching it occasionally but i tell him not to scratch and he will generally stop... he was quite OK with them. Hope they clear up properly. I have been putting lucas paw paw ointment on them every few days aswell (Have to catch him while he's sleeping!) hwich seems to help. Any other ideas welcome!
I have a few other things/questions re the antibotics we were given but will leave it at that for now., must cook dinner, sis is stopping over 2 for some dvd returns (And im sure new dvd loans! hehe) washing up and a sooky dog. Im already buggered! (just thinking about it all after being at work, rushing through traffic to get home and rushing to the vet to make our appointment! Gosh whats that saying? A womens work is never done!? )
