We took Bruno to the vet right away. He was sedated and x-rayed, and trimmed and cleaned. He was put on medications for pain and antibiotics. He was very sore. That was about a week ago. He is so much better now, but still does and will always now walk sideways sometimes.
It seems as if he got semi-addicted to the Rimadyl he was on for pain. He still thinks he is getting them. I have to give him food when he asks for his medicine. He won't stop barking when he hears the word "meds". He now asks for them, two times a day, and now that he isn't doped up from the medicine, he makes quite a racket about it.
I have to announce my oldest daughter's med times so she will bring me her medications (she is 21). Bruno thinks I am taking about his medicine - it is really quite funny. He gets this bright look of anticipation in his eyes, waiting for bread or a chicken nugget. Bruno is doing better, able to walk and jump off the bed. He has such a stubborn heart and mind and that is what got him through this. The Lord gave him a hard head.
We are thankful that there were no broken bones and no internal injuries. We are blessed indeed. The vet said that he is in really good shape. I credit it to the Pedigree he is eating.
I feed them Pedigree because they do so well with it, and it is good for them. I wish I could afford Pro Plan or Authority. I think I am going to save up and get a small bag of one of those, and use it for treats for them.
