Hmm, miracle cure?

On Sunday morning Pepper somehow injured his left foreleg. I examined the leg and could not find any wound or swelling, so I kept him quiet and watched the leg for signs of further problems. Pepper refused to use the leg the entire day. He was pretty quiet all Sunday and I suspected that he had sprained or bruised the shoulder/leg area. Either way I was his personal chauffeur all day, carrying him in and out and around the house as needed.

Monday morning he continued to limp and keep weight off that leg so off to the vets we went. We're in the exam room and I put Pepper on the floor to show the vet tech how Pepper's holding up that leg. As soon as he's down the doctor walks in. Well, Pepper dashes over to me - on FOUR legs - and paws to be picked up! I put him on the exam table and he's moving around on all fours as if to say, "I'm fine, really." The vet looks at me and says, "Why is he here?" Why, indeed. I guess our vet is so good she needs only to walk into the room and her patients are healed.

Pepper was given an anti-inflammatory shot and sent home with some joint supplements. The doc didn't find anything wrong with his leg. As soon as we got home he began chasing the other dogs around and has been fine ever since. The little drama king.

Man! Your vet is GOOD! So glad Pepper is feeling better but geez, it would'a been nice to miraculously heal before the appointment! Little boogers aren't they?

Sounds like my human kids!

Doctor: "How are you?"
Kid that was practically on his deathbed at home: "Fine, doing fine, doctor, nothin's wrong!"
