Well, when mom came home from work super late on Thursday night and took me out to pee, she noticed I didn't want to put any pressure on my left paw. So she looked at it-OUCH! One of my pads was swollen on the side! She looked to see if she could see anything poking out-but she couldn't. So she soaked my paw in hot salty water at 1am.
At 8am, we went to the vet. I don't like the vet! The vet has "gets panic attacks" written on my chart-how dare they say that about me!!! Mom tries to only take me if I really need to go-and Friday, I needed to go. The only way my vet could look at my paws was for mom to lie on top of me. It tends to calm me down and I cant move. But I tried! When she was touching my ouchie paw pad I was trying to move!!!
The vet scraped the surface of my pad but couldn't see anything-but she did see a hole. She told mom that she thought I might have some "plant part" in my pad and the only way she could check it out was to sedate me.....S-E-D-A-T-E..... that word sounds so scary!!!
I was taken away from mom into "the back." They stuck me with a needle, I yelped, and stuck something in me that made me sleepy and drugged up and then OUT! I don't remember anything after this until I woke up. It was wierd...I was wobbly and my tongue was hanging out of my mouth! But my mom was there!!
Mom took me home-all i wanted to do was sleep! I growled at mom once-she was shocked because I NEVER have growled at her! But I wasnt myself!!
