    Default Ellie's leg

    Anyone that reads what I post Ellie's leg had been hurt a few weeks back and she was limping. Well, today she won't walk on it at all, she is trembling. So, we are at the vet and they just told me she has a little bit of a temperature I'm supposed to leave on mo day for New Orleans.... To say the least I'm a little stressed and heartbroken.

    Long story short Ellie's right hip and knee are bad and possibly her ACL. She needs both fixed. I'm going tomorrow to get another opinion. But am looking at close to $4000 for the procedures she needs. Not for sure if I can do this right now. It may have to wait until March. I would take her and have whatever she needs done tomorrow if I could. Not gonna lie i already have tears thinking she will have to be in pain this long.

    Surgeon came in and said that hip is bad but knee is worse. He said if we do anything to do her knee first $2000 and see how that goes may remedy some of the hip problem

    The surgeon said that he always suggests to try rest first and see what improvement does happen. Said he gave her enough pain and inflammation medicine to last until after my trip. Then go to my regular vet and have them call for the x rays and tell them I just want more medicine to keep her rested for the next month.

    Just and FYI for the situation I went to the doggie cancer clinic that helped me with Jagger. They said I could come there anytime I couldn't get into my regular vet. So, I did. My vet is closed today. That place is so kind and helpful.

    Told me to keep Ellie on leash all the time right now. And no running, jumping or rough housing and she has to be kenneled so she will lay down and rest Said the pain medicine should help keep her calm. I feel so bad her face is so pitiful.

    I am most definitely trying the rest and medicine first then will look into surgery options.

    I feel good leaving this place. They always are so kind to me and the fur babies. And encourage you in what choices you are making.
    Reading her assessment make me feel like she cared

    Sorry to hear about the possible surgery. Maybe try giving her some joint meds. I give Raven Cosequin DS after she slipped on the stairs and had hurt her leg. No more limping and I figure it will help her as she gets older.
