Thank you all so much for your good wishes! I have a luxating patella caused by my heroic charge into the front fence to defend my yard against an interloper. The Humans have told me that I will be going to a third vet next Wednesday for a surgical consultation. After that, I will have knee surgery to become a bionic Dog.
For all our Dog and Meowy followers, think very carefully about heroism. You don’t always get a medal. Sometimes, all you get is a visit to three–count them, three!–vets for your trouble.
Woofs and Wags, Stella
