Me no like the vet
This past week Chloe has been limping a bit, but only after she's been laying down a while is when she starts this. After a couple minutes, she's usually walking fine though. I gave it a few days to see if it'd just go away, but it hadn't. We got back from the vet this morning (Chloe hates the vet, she always is so nervous that she shakes uncontrollably), and everything went well. They checked her out, and it seems she definitely has an injury to her right shoulder. I'm really not too sure what the cause is, although I have a few ideas of what it could be. My first guess it that it's Maya (they play a little too rough at times), second, Chloe misjudges the jump onto the futon and has hit the metal bar a couple of times, and there was a time last week when Arthur was running outside with her in his arms and he went to put her down mid-jog and she stumbled. Either way, she's hurt now; luckily, she doesn't seem to be feeling any pain, or she just hides it really well. The doc prescribed some anti-inflammatory medication for her that should resolve this issue along with some rest. That means no more jumping on or off couches and beds and keeping her separated from Maya to avoid any more stress to her injury. If in a week she hasn't improved, we'll have to get x-rays. I sure hope we don't have to. I hope my little girl gets better real soon.
