Dusty saw the vet this morning. She only weighed 6.1 lbs, which is a half pound less than last April. Personally I think his scale is off, cuz I would swear she has gained weight since April.
Anyway, she hollered all the way to the office in the car. When the vet checked out her good leg, she was tolerant, but when he got to the shoulder on her bad side, she let him have it - hissed, growled, scratched both the vet and the assistant, and peed all over the table. She was not happy.
He said he couldn't feel any swelling, and her temp was normal, so he gave her a shot of anti-inflamatory medicine. She also got her annual rabies shot.
After her temper tantrum on the table, they were afraid to wand her for a chip or to even attempt to put one in, so that will have to wait awhile.
She's moving slowly this afternoon, but is putting weight on the bad leg. But she's not running up and down the stairs, but taking them one at a time.
I'm sure she'll be fine in a few days.
