Our Eva girl injured her left hind leg yesterday evening due to too much running and jumping in the garden.
She was completely alright before I did some gardening in the back yard and she was in her playpen in the garden. However, due to the noises I made when I was getting rid of the weeds, she ran and barked frantically in her play pen.
My husband took her back to her room as she was making too much noise out there. Sometimes I wonder I've already become the centre of the neighbourhood because of our noisy little fella.
I went to see her after I'd done my gardening which was about 20 minutes later and found her behaving a bit weird. She was just sitting there and looking at me, I called her a couple of times and she finally got up and walked to me then I realised something was wrong with her left leg.
My husband and I tried to lift her legs up and touched her legs but she didn't make any noise, no whining, no whimpering, no complaining at all.
The next thing I did was I rang the vet and luckily he was still in his clinic. We zoomed to him and reached his clinic within 15 minutes.
The vet is a very kind gentleman. He examined Eva's legs and hips carefully, used his hands to feel her bones and hips, tried to rotate her legs and finally he said it could be an inflammation there. A jab was given for reducing the inflammation and a tablet for the next two evenings.
As you all know that we're always concerned about Eva's hind legs because they look a bit like cow hocked and they're kind of weak, the vet suggested to give Eva's hips an x-ray in order to find out what has happened to her hips. The appointment is scheduled next Tuesday morning.
We don't know whether it's a good idea for giving Eva the x-ray as she's still a puppy but the vet said it's fine as she's already 6 months old. So, the appointment is made.
It wasn't a very pleasant evening for me at all yesterday as I was so so worried about our naughty daredevil Eva girl. In fact, Hana's incident still haunts me all the time and I really don't like that feeling. I get tense easily too if anything goes wrong with Eva.
Luckily, Eva behaved quite normal and walked as usual before we went to bed although she's still a bit quiet. I think it's because of the jab.
It was a big relief to see the little girl running, jumping and barking as usual this morning.
It was a 'PHEW"!!!
The stone in my heart is gone!
For a change, I'm having the lead this time!
I'm my own boss now, Yippee!!!
