Another visit to the vets!

I think we shall have to take out a season ticket!

Ruby had seen the vet nurse 2 weeks ago to have her teeth checked after we started cleaning them - AOK.

Last week we had a vet visit as she had been bitten close to her eye and was bleeding lightly. Once healed though, we noticed a small patch of fur was coming away - thoroughly checked - kerching!

This week she decided to eat a small bee and got stung in her mouth. Neither of us heard a yelp. DB was on the conservatory roof and I was inside. She had just had her lunch and I had gone outside to pick up her bowl and noticed the start of a big fat lip:
We phoned up the vets for advice and they requested to see her as it was in her mouth. DB managed to get the sting out. Steroids and hayfever tablets prescribed - kerching again! In the end, she looked like she had a whole boiled egg in her cheek.

A steroid and hay-fever tablet was pushed into a meaty treat which she downed in one and is now having a sleep. She has to go back for a check up which is covered by the first fee thank goodness, plus she needs a couple more pills.

To add insult to her injury, she wet her bed (side effect apparently of her pills). Both she, her bedding and the room smelt ugh. Gave her rear end a quick wash and dry, plus her bedding. An unusual start to our morning which a has thrown us off!

  1. Oh dear, dogs are expensive! Poor Ruby, she's certainly been in the wars lately. Not a good start to your morning. Betty used to chase bees when she was younger, she doesn't bother with them anymore though, thankfully. Something else they seem to grow out of - well, Betty has.

  3. Oh, that poor sweet baby! Animals can be so expensive, but they provide so much love and companionship. I hope your Ruby (and your wallet!) is on the mend quickly. She's a gorgeous dog.

  4. Poor lass, we have had a couple of people in the shop recently telling us their dog has been stung this summer. Feels like we should have a season ticket too, one of my buns has just spent three days at our vet - very painful on the wallet!

    1. She was chasing a bumble bee as well. Thank goodness that didn’t sting her. In future, we shall give her a pill and watch her. 3 days, I can understand the cost of that. Hopefully you can claim.
