I've been such a bad dog owner
Firstly, Miley was licking her back paw the last couple of weeks.
She hasn't been going for walks because of crap weather and the fact that I feel like total shize. The fact that she has been lazing around and not wearing down her nails, means that, unbeknownst to me, she had gotten an ingrown toenail. It wasn't until I saw pink all over her fur on her paw, and had a look that I saw it. It was absolutely shocking. The nail and gone so deep into her pad that there was no way I could get it out myself.
So I intended on taking her to the vet tomorrow, however, when I was grooming her after her bath, I got a bit scissor happy and cut her .
So off to the emergency vet for 10 staples and a toenail trim.
She is comfortable now.. totally zonked on morphine. If she could grin like a human she would be.. just like Cheech
She's now on antibiotics and has her foot plastered and her neck is all clean and closed from the cut. When I first did it I freaked out and was grabbing the cut closed tight with a towel and getting DH on the net to find the closest 24 hour vet. We were out the door within 10 minutes.
Talk about panic
