Poorly Paw!

Last evening poor Joanie tore her dewclaw so badly that it was bleeding profusely.  We had to make a quick visit to a local veterinarian.  She was pretty agitated so they gave her a shot of hydromorphone, which has several side effects including drooling, panting, whining, lethargy and torpor.  In fact she whined constantly till about 4 a.m. this morning - so not much sleep for any of us last night!

She seems much better today - and amazingly she has not tried to remove her bandage!!!  She will now be on Previcox anti-inflammatory medication for the next seven days.
