The 1 thing I dread most...

(b/w picture-Toby on vet table)
The 1 thing I dread most in life...

This time it wasn't because of eye issues, it was for a totally NEW problem.

Sunday afternoon my trainer noticed a sore on my chest, she kept a close eye on me and the following day she saw it was bleeding.
I was then taken to the vet.
Coming back home with pills I have to take twice a day!
My trainer was told it is an infection, but we don't have any idea where it came from, the vet does think it is somewhat suspicious that this just happened after all the other medical issues I have been having- but can't figure out how they could all link together.
My trainer has talked to her Area Coordinator after the vet visit, and they are now thinking I might need to get a second opinion/or visit the school if I keep having medical issues...
I think I would rather stay right here, NO MORE VETS!!
...but of course I do what my trainer tells me to.
Please pray that I start feeling better soon, and all my medical issues GO AWAY!!

Ouchie! That sore looks painful. I'm sorry you're having health issues, Toby. Glad you are getting good care, though!

Ouch - that does not look cool. We actually like our vet - except for that temp taking and blood taking thing. But they give us lots of cookies and scratches.

Sonic said...

OH no, Toby!

That looks awful. I hope it goes away soon. The vet is nasty sometimes, but I think they have our best interests at heart.

Owie! I hope you feel better soon! You might want to ask your trainer to leave your vest off if it rubs anywhere near your ouchy! My first pup Gabrina got some scabs on her back and she wasn't allowed to wear her vest until they healed just in case the vest rubbed on them and made it worse.

We hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

Poor Toby! We hope that gets sorted soon - it doesn't look very nice.

Wishing you and your trainer a Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2010.

Clive, Murray and all the family
