Vet has just left (it's 11pm here!). He has poked and prodded MoM who, to be frank, appears to still be bombed off her face on Devil's Claw. This afternoon she was virtually asleep with her nose on the floor so I may have over done things a bit.:eek: I wasn't sure whether to give her anything as it interferes with the vets possible diagnosis but she was in pain this morning so I did.

Anyway, vet poked and prodded with tweezers and cut her leg open a bit more to get out foreign bodies (tree). Antibiotic shot and a sachet of bute for the morning. All by torch light. I was a bit embarassed to have called him out for something that appeared trivial but, as it turned out she had something in the wound, he said better now than leave it and have the wound get infected and her go down with blood poisoning.

So, a weeks rest for her. I will have to try taking FB out on his own...could be fun.
