Bella's Injury

We went to Chicago this weekend for a wedding and a friend of ours was watching Bella for us. He called on our drive home tonight and said she had gotten a cute on her paw and he was going to bring her back to our house so she was here when we got home. When we arrived poor little Bella was limping around on 3 legs instead of 4 and when I got a good look at her cut, realized it was pretty deep. Jamie called the after hours vet clinic and the lady on the phone said it might be a good idea to bring her in to prevent infection. So at about 8:00 we drove across town and took her in to the emergency 24 hour vet clinic. We waited a little bit and finally saw the veterinarian and she said she probably needed stitches. They took her back and we waited in the waiting room for about 45 minutes. They brought her back out to us pretty groggy and out of it (they had to sedate her) with a big cone on her head and a little doggy cast on her little leg! She looked so sad and pathetic! She has to take an antibiotic and they gave her some pain medication and no running, jumping, or playing with other dogs (sorry J.J. no playing this weekend!) until she gets her sutures out (10-14 days). Here are a few pictures of our poor little girl!

Poor Bella! And Mom and Dad!

Was it determined how she cut herself?
