On the weekend I noticed one of the UBs at Hank's limping. We call him Pseudo-Maggie because he looks just like our Maggie.When I got a closer look it appeared to be a nail problem. Since he wasn't putting any weight on it, I pulled out the trap and amazingly, after a bit of following him around, he went in. Off the vet he went. Poor Pseudo had an overgrown nail that had become infected. They flushed the wound, and stitched it up, plus pulled out a loose tooth and treated an ear infection.
He's staying in for a week to heal up but he is eating well. That really must have hurt.
On another note, from March 1 - 31, Global Pet Foods and Hill's Science Diet are inviting Canadians to nominate outstanding animal shelter and rescue volunteers for the first Heroic Heart Pet Service Award.
