N...News on Wilma!

 


Wilma has a dislocated one hip, apparantly the other one is arthritic, well for a dog with arthritis (which we did not know) I think she does remarkably well. One of her ankles? is broken too.

These injuries although serious are not as bad as things could have been or as I was imagining. Wilma suffered an almighty gash to her head exposing part of her skull, and when her nose was bleeding we were fearing internal bleeding or even brain injury.

He did pose the question......but Jon pointed out quite rightly we owe it to Wilma to have the hip put back and for the necessary surgery to be carried out so we can have her home where she will be looked after 24/7. Wilma does not like to be any other place and will be very very nervous and worried, so the sooner she is home the better.

  2. Ouch! Poor Wilma, I can't imagine how you felt when she was hit - horrible - eeeek! So glad to know she will pull through just fine. I do hope she is insured? This close to Christmas is a tough enough time, isn't it?

  4. I guess this is great news. "Minor" injuries. I hope Wilma heals well and recovers quickly.

  5. I have just spoken to the vet again, They are putting a pin into her hip to keep it in place, another operation tomorrow will sort this out, hopefully and Wilma will probably be in the vets until the weekend when she comes home she will need a lot of assistance....everybody wants the best for Wilma.

    Just got back from visiting Wilma at the vets. She is quite sedated but definately in the right place. She will definately have the best care when she comes home. She wont be able to manage the stairs so I will sleep downstairs with her.

    Thanks so much for your kind thoughts and wishes.

  13. Good to hear that Wilma is doing well. She will relax and recover so mucu more quickly at home with you.
    I suppose a RuffWear harness might not help but Goodgle it and see what you think - it makes lifting a big dog much easier (or look on my blog at Dominie for photos)
