  • My Little Doggie Girl Has Two Big Hematoma

    I think Blood Clots on the inside of her right thigh. I called two Vet Ers . One said apply ice and go get 25mg Benedryal and check her gums every few hrs til Morning. Then I will rush her to her specialist. She was doing so well tooo. The iskin is a red as a bad brush burn on the lumps and even toward the ankle. I doubt I will sleep a wink for fear it will go tho her lungs or brain and kill her. I have creid so uch I can't focus well. The lumps are by knee and the other up higher by her little pee pee. About the size of a 50 cent piece or bigger. I did apply ice.

    This is soooo hard to deal with. Then the gen just now getting fixed and I was suppose to groom today.Not going to happen now!

    Aww, Jen, I'm so sorry you have to go through something like this. I HATE it when my furkids get sick or wounded and I tend to stress about every bump, bruise, hairball or bent whisker. Our household is still adjusting to the fact that Wyatt can no longer run, jump, or go for walks. He's on Metacam and Tramadol to manage his daily pain but sometimes he "forgets" that he can't simply bolt out the front door for a quick roll on the grass - he'll overdo it, tweak himself, then have to lie down for a few minutes.

    For me, the mere FACT that Wyatt experienced pain of any sort felt grossly unfair. He's such a PERFECT dog, with a kind heart and a beautiful soul. In the beginning, I would burst into tears at the mere sight of my poor boy laying bored on his bed, unable to walk for long or engage in the vigorous play he was known for. Now, I don't know about your girl, but we discovered that Wyatt actually does much better when we make a conscious effort not to worry, stress, cry, or project the future about his situation. He's a very sensitive dog, as most are. He KNOWS when we are upset about something. For awhile, I believe he thought we were upset with HIM, since watching him gimp around made me cry. I had to literally force myself to "get a grip" on my emotions and take each day as the precious gift it is. Once I was able to relax a little and take things as they come, his mood and demeanor visibly improved. Now, we do what we can to keep him happy and comfortable with a good quality of life, but I have resigned myself to the fact that our twice-daily romps in the park are in the past. It was important not only for my own mental well-being, but for his as well.

    Take things one day at a time, and deal with these incidents as they come up with all the calm, loving, professional care you possess.

      You are so right about being sensitive.

      If I hover over her and cry she knows. I guess I need to howel AAAAHHH WHOOOOOO a few times and have the brothers chime in just to perk things up around here. Do a happy dance or something. I had two hrs sleep thus far. I have a lady who is around 80+ who really needs her dog groomed. Quick and easy when I have had sleep. So nap for now and then go do her dog and get meds at two separate places. Then at 4Pm they come for my rig to take overnight to modify for the Gen air circulation. Ahhhh I am sooo exhausted. crying always drains me . The lumps are not blood clots but filled blood from something that caused an infection. Suppressed immune system from pills poses scary situations. Last night I resigened myself to the fact she might die. BUT this morn her count is still looking good according to her gums. This is just a hurdle we need to get over. It is soo good to have caring friends here on this forum. We all love our furkids and have experienced pain due to that love. I don't know if it was a bug bite but the redness went away mostly....maybe the Benedryl helped. Geee, for now I won't even trim her nails for fear of quicking one.

        So sorry you are going through this...

        It is tough, but they do pick up our emotions. I hope she gets better. Take care and please give us updates.
