We are all a little worried about Diamond. It's funny but even Zach keeps checking on her. See, she's going in to have that knot cut out Tues. but she went and tore the pad of her front paw last night. It's fileted not cut. She won't let Mom clean it good and Dad isn't here to help. She was able to get some Neosporin on it. Mom is tempted to take her in tomorrow for the Doc to look at it. She knows if an infection sets in her surgery might be delayed.
Diamond is just not herself today, which is probably throwing us off too.
I just wanted to say "I'm worried", hoping maybe some how, it will make me feel better.
Sending lots of purrs to Diamond.
I'd say "don't worry" but its natural to worry about those we love and care about! Keep an eye on Diamond and see how she does over night. Mom will know what to do in the morning. All 8 of us will be purring! Keep us posted! Purrs, Maedia
We've been sending purrs for Diamond this whole time, but she must have gotten around some of them!! So we're sending MORE!! Luv, Tink
purrs for diamond!!!
Purrring & praying for Diamonds booboo & surgery!!
we are purring for diamond to feel better soon
sending many hugs to you
Purrs for Diamond! I think if it's that chopped up, maybe your mommy should take her in tomorrow. Don't wait until it's surgery day. Feel better Diamond!
Thank You, you guys. I love you all very much.
Diamond laid on the sofa with Mom for two hours this afternoon and now she's moved to the bed. She's not her perky self but Mom said her paw will heal better if she stays off of it. She's laying down awkwardly but Mom said it's not her back leg she's favoring, it's the weight on the front paw.
Thanks again for the purrs, hopefully we will have good news by the end of next week. And for Dad's sake the bill doesn't get above $400. Dad said they will just have to work with us if it's more than that. Mom has been meaning to get us insurance but never did. She even got estimates! Slow Mommy.
Anybody know how much the average Biopsy and lab work cost?
We're purring for Diamond.
Aren't you sweet Spice. Thank You and tell the boys Zach said Thank You.
Oh noes! This is what I did last February. You got to prevent infection. I wouldn't allow a bandage to stay on. I had to stay off my paws. Yea, right~ as if..So I was in jail for almost two weeks. But I am purrfectly fine now.
We are all purring like mad for Diamond!
Ollie and co
Thank You Mrs. A for the Power of the Paw for Diamond. That was very sweet of you.
We're purring for Diamond!! It might be an idea to get her paw checked out but its hard to know how bad it is from here. There was a dog in moms clinic last week that had part paw pad torn off and they had to stitch it up. Hope it isn't that bad.
Purring for the surgery and hope everything goes well. I've got Stewie here praying for Diamond too.
Love and BIG purrs,
Blade, Stewie, Simon and Tony
Blade, the big pad in the back, half of the black is gone, like skint off. Mom has been treating it but she's worried about infection before she goes into surgery.
Doc said he might not have to cut that much. That's what we are hoping for. That it's just on the surface. It has gotten hard and crusty sense last Thur. What is that do you know?
i had a cut once a my paw pad. mom still dosent know what i did to it. all knows that she looked at me once and my paw was bleeding. i have scar from that
I cut my leg open one time at the elbow. they had to cut the dead skin off and sew me up. I was escaping the screen porch at the time.
Oh Hi BFF so sorry we were not her sooner, mom has been away alot lately, we are all purring and praying for Diamond. You and your mom try not to worry, we are purring it all goes well with no infection at all. big hug to mom and purrs and nose rubs to you Zoe
I'm sending Diamond purrs.
you know. all of us dai$y's are tough cookies...sorry this message is late, but you know the staff's "computer situation"....hhmmpphh....anymew, if your mom is reading this today, tell her that she might get some gauze and try and wrap your daisy's paw so lord knows what doesn't set it because they will delay the surgery if she has an infection.....if she limps and won't put it down, .....well, you know, it's not good....
hugs from dai$y and the boys
We're behind the times here, too - sorry to hear about Diamond. We hope the foot is getting better. If she were human, we would say give her at least 500 mg echinacea three times a day. Mama and Papa absolutely swear by the stuff for all manner of infections, even if they turn their noses up at some other herbal cures. It is positively magical, especially if taken before serious infection, internal or topical, sets in. But as she's a dog, I have no idea what effect echinacea may have - have never talked to an herbalist on the subject, though it could be something worth looking into. Neosporin is the topical cureall the Mama uses for wounds, which your Mama is already using. We send our purrs.
I'z so sorry, sweet Zoe! We all be's purrin' 'n purrayin' fur Diamond!~ Iz so sad when a part of ur furmily is hurtin'!!! I do hope efurythin' goes well 'n ok tomorrow wif da surgery!!
