Red's trip to the vet.

Today was Red's turn to see the vet for her leg. She was so good for her exam! As long as I held her in my arms, she let the vet poke, prod, bend and squeeze her foot and leg without a struggle. I couldn't believe it and was thrilled we didn't need any anesthesia!

The outcome....most likely a bad sprain. There are no wounds, doesn't feel like an abscess and no sign of a break. She was walking on it much better as well. So right now she is going to get cage rest so I can keep an eye on her for a couple of days. She certainly doesn't seem unhappy about the forced visit!

Dandy will be heading in Thursday morning for her checkup and will hopefully get a clean bill of heath and her wish to go home! Maybe by then both girls will get to go home together.
