Oh No! Not the Vet Again!

Beano finds another hiding place

Just before I left for work this morning, I found Beano limping and not putting weight on his left hind leg. I wondered if he tried jumping on the table and slipped off and sprained his leg, or if he’d actually broken it. I gave him the day to recover and checked on him again when I got home. Beano wasn’t putting full weight on it, but he still managed to leap up into this cupboard and on the bed. His leg can’t be broken if he’s jumping around, can it?? Is it some kind of muscle problem and not his leg?? I really couldn’t tell. I phoned the vet’s office this evening and described how he was walking, but the only way to know is to take him in.

I’m dropping Beano off tomorrow morning before work, so we’ll see what the doctor says. I hope it’s something simple and treatable and doesn’t require selling my car or a kidney… I don’t even know how much an x-ray costs. I was supposed to inject Beano this evening, but I’m going to leave it to the vet techs since they have him all day. Oh boy, is he ever going to have fun tomorrow…

It’s times like this I wish our pets could talk!
