Sorry I haven't been around lately but I have been looking after Milly. Yesterday she slipped on the kitchen floor and we thought nothing of it as she didn't yelp or anything. Later on that evening she seemed to be limping so we took her to the vets just as a precaution. We were not prepared for the news he gave us. He gave her an xray (which we since have found out that he shouldn't have given a dog so young) and told us that Milly has hip displacia. He has said she would need a hip replacement which will cost us £1,000. It will be very stressful for such a young dog as it is a major op and her recupering period would be for about a year.Luckily for us we know a friend of a friend who is studying to be a vet and she has asked a top dog surgeon about it and he has advised against the op, but is willing to see Milly to see what can be done. Rob has just taken her back to the original vet as we had already made the appointment, he is supposed to be telling us what his superiors say about the op, but he seemed adamant about giving her the op.
Sorry to bore you but I haven't felt up to crafting much as we sat up with her all night and I am exhausted. Those of you with dogs I'm sure will understand . :0)
