I Wish Oscar Could Talk (2.07.2009)

Just wanted to check in really quickly and say that the dishwasher showed up around 6:45pm. Happy to have one again.

Unfortunately, I just got out of the Pet ER with Oscar, my dog. I came home from my friend's baby shower in DC to find Oscar not able to put any pressure on his front left paw. Kevin had taken him on a normal walk this morning (without any ball throwing) and nothing happened out of the ordinary. I checked it thoroughly for glass or something stuck in his paw before deciding to take him in.

X-rays showed nothing, so he has some pain meds and is resting. They are thinking it could be a sprain, but if it doesn't improve, we will go in for the lymes test to be sure. He is on flea & tick, heart worm prevention, and up-to-date on all vaccines, so there is only a small chance it could be from some sort of disease.

He has a horrible limp and is a poor, poor thing. We will be having a slumber party downstairs tonight because he cant make it up the stairs and I cant bear to leave his side.

I will be back to regular posts as soon as Oscar is back to normal. It is amazing how dogs become so important in your life. They are a part of your family and life stops when they are hurt or sick.

I wish he could talk and tell me exactly what happened and how it feels. I would do anything to have him feeling normal self again.

Poor Oscar! Dixie has serious paw issues if her paws get too cold - the pads crack and I have to put Neosporin way up in there. I know how sad it can be to watch a little buddy be miserable...hope he feels better soon.

im so sorry! One time porkchop jumped up in the air and hit his ribs on the corner of the dining room table and started screaming- I cried for about 2 hours. He got better later that night but I just held him while he wimpered. Its hard cause you cant tell them whats going on. Poor puppyfaces :(

Poor Oscar! Good thing he has such a good human mommy. Hope he's feeling better and it's nothing serious.

That is so sad. Baxter was doing the same thing and apparently it was growing pains. It lasted about two weeks and now he is okay. How old is Oscar? HOpe he is okay.

nicole/ Oscar is 3 and a half. I have a vet appt tomorrow night, so I hope to learn more then!
