It was tempting to make a frivolous comic strip this week, but my instinct said that the difficult thing to do is probably the right thing.
Last week, our dog Rory was very unwell. She couldn’t keep anything down, she stopped eating and drinking and seemed to be in a great deal of pain and discomfort. We couldn’t tell if it was stomach-related, muscle-related or something else entirely. She spent fours days being cared for by the amazing team at Dandenong Veterinary Hospital – she had lots of IV fluids, her blood work done, an x-ray and an ultrasound.
We still don’t know what caused the illness, and the treatment of the symptoms helped her get through and heal up.
She is almost better now, but she had us quite worried.
Not being able to ask her about her illness, or tell her why she was being left in the care of the vets, compounded an already difficult ordeal.
