I didn't really want to be responsible for another Mabel blog, but today my little world yet again has been concentrated down into vet assessments and the caring of a sick animal.
Today's medical findings were of no surprise.
I was right, and take no pleasure in it.
Mabel's infection is still there
New Antibiotics have been prescribed and a inconclusive abdominal scan performed
A neurological check at my request showed she has lost her proprioception of her back left leg.
Proprioception as any old spinal Injury Nurse will tell you, is the body's ability to know where it is
Whatever the cause
The outcome is potentially serious.
She is too sick to be sedated for xrays at present, The vet wants to do those on Tuesday. My job is to keep her going with subcutaneous steroids, antibiotics and fluids until then.
She looks poorly
