Ernie has an operation date!
We have been given a date for the little Squib's operation! Ernie will go in next Tuesday 21st April for his 'Femoral Head and Neck Excision' and we're all a little nervous. It's a big op, and we're worried how he'll be! We don't know how long it will take him to recover, but he LOVES playing and going for walks. We're sure he'll be itching to start running around our local park again, and as he's still a puppy we're hoping he soon bounces back.
As it's getting warmer and warmer we'd love to take him to the sea side so that he can run along the sand and swim in the sea! What with his swimming physiotherapy, he should be a natural in no time! So yeah, we're hoping we can take him for a fun trip this summer!
This is Ernie's xray! My mum snapped a pic of it at the vet's this morning, and you can really see which leg is the bad one. We knew that he was in pain, but it didn't really hit home until we saw this. It made me feel so sorry for him, so i'm glad that he has his operation so soon!
Wish Squib good luck!!
