Ahhhh To Be Home

Calamity is home. She's resting in the bedroom as she could not get comfortable in the crate The Old Fart set up in the living room.

When I went to pick her up she is sporting a nifty soft splint. Her leg is wrapped with cast padding and then a hard splint is applied to the back part of her leg to keep it stable. The entire thing is then held together with layers of vet wrap. She's hobbling today.

She is on 2 different antibiotics. I need to keep a good check on her temperature to keep ahead of any infections that may start. She did spike a bit of a temperature & my vet friend suggested I add a dose of Metacam, which is an NASID and should reduce the fever.

She is going outside on a lead to keep her calm & not try to run.

Let the healing begin!
