Home from the rabies and blood tests, in total shock. Ellie escaped from the carrier and got mauled by three dogs. Thank God there was a vet on hand to examine her immediately. She does not seem injured though I think she may have lost a couple of claws and some fur. She was covered in blood, but it belonged to one of the dogs, a terrier, not her, so I think she was fighting hard for her life. When we pulled the dogs off her (three of them had her on the ground) she just lay there and I thought she was dead. Her mouth was open and then I could see she was breathing. I have brought her home now and put her in my bedroom in the dark, with a saucer of warm milk and a litter tray. I don't know what else to do. The vet, Haris, said just to leave her alone and quiet for 24 hours and to ring him if I thought there were any problems. She is walking a little stiffly, but he said there are no bones broken though she is probably bruised. And that was after she had been so good during the blood donation - hardly a peep. Dushka was good too, but Persil fought and screamed and it was a battle to get enough blood to take to Vienna. I thought all that was bad enough, then poor Ellie got out and ran. It was my fault - I didn't check the bottom clips of the carrier carefully. We were doing it at my friend's garage as she is the one going to Vienna. I just feel awful.
