Hi, folks! Maggie's monthly vet visit yesterday did not go as expected. Once she was on the exam table and the vet started checking her out, she kind of freaked out -- trying to bite both the vet tech and the vet. After several tries with the both of them trying to calm her down (and the tech keeping a more secure hold), the vet was able to continue his exam. Whenever he got close to her right shoulder, she tensed up. He was able to conduct a good exam and said that her shoulder was out of alignment and all three of us noticed that, as she stood, her right front paw was set back and turned in 90 degrees. She was already getting a cortisone shot -- he added another shot of a different kind of anti-inflammatory. It's not difficult to keep her quiet -- she had been going on short walks lately but those are out for a few days. When she walks, she swings her right foot out before bringing it back in. I didn't really get an opportunity to talk with the vet about the whys --- will do that when he returns from a conference he is attending. Maggie hasn't jumped up or down anything in a very, very long time so that is definitely not a possible cause. She does seem pretty comfortable today so, hopefully, the shots kicked in. I'll end on a good note: she has been eating for 10 days (Merrick's canned Grammy's Pot Pie -- I even think it smells good)!
