About three or so weeks ago, Molly fell off the couch awkwardly.
We took her to the emergency vet and was told "it was probably a torn ligament
or something to do with her knee. See how she goes in a few days".
She didn't seem to be improving so we took her to our normal vet.
Turned out she had dislocated her hip. The vets were amazed as they usually
see this kind of injury in dogs that have been hit by a car.
She was operated on the following week. To keep her quiet for the first
few days, Molly stayed in the play room. Rex kept an eye on her.
Once Molly was back in the lounge, Rex kept her company.
He was so good with her as he knew Molly wasn't well.
Molly has been coming along nicely. Although last week when someone took her collar off for a little while and forgot to keep an eye on her, Molly managed to removed four stitches. So back to the vet but they weren't too concerned as she was healing nicely. After only five days, she was already resting her foot on the ground which the vet was very pleased to see. The stitches come out in the next couple of days and the collar off on the weekend. Bet Molly can't wait for that!
