Chyna hurt her leg...

Chyna's new confines...
Not a happy face!

Sunday night, February 17th, Chyna was on the couch with me and she jumped down and immediately started limping on her left hind leg. I grabbed her and rushed her to the ER vet about 20 miles away. She was diagnosed with a partially torn ligament.

I took her to my vet a few days later and after he xrayed her it showed she had luxating patella (her knee was out of place) and had to have surgery. My vet was leaving the next day for a visit with his family, so we decided to have the surgery done when he returned in case there were any complications.

She had surgery last Thursday. She started putting a little weight on her leg by Sunday. So far, no swelling or complications. She is on pain meds, antibiotics and Rimadyl. Tomorrow we go back in to have it checked and maybe take the bandages off. They are slipping down and I can see a few of the staples. No redness though, and she has been really good about not chewing on the bandage....so far.

What a sweet face! So glad she is recuperating, but she needs some toys, ya think? Just kidding. Looks like a spoiled baby to me.
