So, after examining Wilson yesterday, watching his limp, poking and prodding, the vet felt it was not a bone issue, but a muscle injury. Based on this, she opted not to do X-rays. That's good for Wilson since it meant he didn't need to be knocked out. It appears to be a bicep injury and is quite painful. There's no real way to know the extent of the damage so for now Wilson will be on Metacam to reduce inflammation and a muscle relaxer to help ease spasms and pain. Of course, it also means nothing but short potty walks, no steps, no getting on/off the sofa/bed....By the time Wilson is all better, I'll be needing the Metacam and muscle relaxers for my back. Wilson weighs 40 pounds which doesn't sound like that much but carrying him up/down steps takes its toll on your back!
Oh, and to explain today's title....Not only is Wilson restricted to doing next to nothing, but now I've cut back on the size of his meals! So he's sore, bored...and now HUNGRY! In a corgi's mind, that may well be worse than pain!
