We have returned from the Vet
This is one of the pictures we took last night and
you can clearly see the swelling
First of all thank you to everyone that wished Lilly well. We have just returned from the Vet about an hour ago and I wanted to give you an update on Lilly.
It seems she was bitten by a marten or somehting similar and the bite got infected leading to a pretty bad swelling and causing her terrible pain. She had no fever and rabies are not an issue where we live so the Vet gave her an antibiotic and some painkiller and that was that. Now we will check to see if she gets better and pray that it will otherwise we will be off to the Vet on Monday again. We do have reassurance however that it is nothing too serious and we are quite relieved.
While we were there we took Maunzerl in for a check up too. She did not do so well in the car. It was the first time she has been out since we got her and the excitement just got too much for her. She took her shot like a champ though and didn't even bat an eyelash. At least we have reassurance now that everything is alright and will hopefully not have to go and see that nice man again.
That does not mean we don't like our Vet but just like a dentist you are glad he's there when you need him but you don't want to see him too often though. He's brilliant at what he does and really takes his time explaining things in detail. So Dr. H if you are reading this-we salute you ;)
