I feel terrible!!! Been away for a week and I came home to see my pup needs a good brush. She's a German shepherd with what I'd consider a medium coat. One minute she looks fine and next minute she looks homeless, like she hasn't had a brush before in her life! So her winter coat has started to come out, bring her inside (not ideal but it's raining and quite chilly) she can't be outside when it's cold because she has leg problems and it really messes her around. I start brushing away, she's happy as to get all the fur out and then I get to her back leg and bam! She tries to run away. Unlike her. Call her over and calm her down and go to look at why she has run off and she's got a bald spot happening with what looks like infected sores!!!! This is the same leg she had acl surgery on just over a year ago, she's had a bit of a limp since and the vet says yep that will probably always be there. But my poor big girl!! How did we miss this!! It looks so sore and she's never worried about us touching her, ever. I have to organise her to go to the vet but it's such a hard process, Dp has to take her alone because 1. I can't walk her, she's just so big and she loves the vet (odd I know) so she gets super excited to be there. 2. We can't fit her and ds in the car together. We have to take the car seat out so she can sit down. Dp is sleeping after night shift today and I feel so down because my puppy is hurt!!!
There's no point to this, I just feel terrible and want to cry! I love my dog to death, how could I have missed this!!!
