Just Not My Day

Yesterday, mom groomed me.   I have been licking at my foot a lot lately and a week ago, I visited my vet.  He did a very thorough exam and couldn't find any concerning issues. I was prescribed 5 days of Previcox just in case.   Both mom and Dr A think it's anxiety but that's another story. 
So now mom grooms me and discovers this~

 We didn't get photos of mom trying to put the soft evil lampshade on me but believe me, it wasn't pretty.   Picture a bucking bronco flinging his halter over his head about 20 feets from where he's standing.  Yup, that was me!
So the next bestest idea is Bag Balm and a sockie with velcro to keep it in place. 
 This stuffs smells funny, mom.
 I am waiting for the treat that I was promised!
 Mom says today is an inside play day so that I can TRY to remain calm and heal my foot.   The treat machine is a fun past time and yummy too!
 You operate the bone lever and I will eat all of the treats that you dispense to me, Mitch ☺
It is rainy and very cool and I needed to go out for a peepee break and look what she made me wear -  a poo bag over my AireSockie!  I sure hope that none of the neighbors see me in this get up!  What will they think?!

Time for a nap~
I sure do hope my toes heal fast!

So until next time...........

Love ya lots♥
Molly

Ouchie, that looks painful and itchy. I hope it heals quickly. We are having lots of rain, too. No fun at all.

Hey Mitch...Teka here. I'm hoping your foot feels better soon. Gussie is a licker too. He used to have separation anxiety, but now he is just anxious all the time. Our vet prescribed "Neo-Predef " for him the last time, and here is what Drs Foster and Smith have to say "http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=10024 "

Not something to play around with, but if Gus gets to be too intense about it, we sprinkle this "pixie dust" on his foot and he is pretty good about stopping.

Ask your vet!

we sure hope the foot heals fast - did you get the vet to check and see it wasn't a bee sting or spider bite?

Poor Molly - those sores can be so annoying. We hope it heals quickly. Tell Mom to ask your vet about Bitter Orange double strength creme for dogs. It is made by ARC Laboratories. Mom used it on Phantom's tail to keep him from licking at his tumors. It is something like the bitter apple spray, but it is more creamy and stronger.

Wow Molly, your mom must have gotten a bad scare. We hope that your foot heals quickly with mom's care. Now we'll have to figure out what caused the sore.

Antiseptic/cortisone non stinging spray from Petco or Petsmart works wonders too

Ouch, Molly! That looks super hurtie. One time, my cousin Mya had a rip in her pad and Mom bandaged it. When Mya had to go potty, Mom would cover the bandage with the finger part of a latex glove - don't forget, Mya was a mini dachshund :)

Hope your owwie gets better soon!

Pay attention to your Mom, Ms. Molly—she knows best! Another smart move with bag over your foot...you still look fab:-) Here's to you healing super fast!

Sully said...

Bless your little heart, your paw looks painful. Be sure to limp, whine and carry on in a pawthetic way so you can get extra treats.

Aroo to you,
Sully

The poo bag rain protector though....sorry dude, we hope nobody saw it ;-)

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We're with you. We hope that sore heals double quick! There's too much stuff to be doing outdoors for you to have to wear a baggie. At least you dealt effectively with the cone of shame.

You have a treat dispenser??!! Wow!

Grantham Lynn said...

Oh I am so sorry. I have never had this kind of trouble with the dogs. But horses are a different story. I like your example of the horse. Made me smile. I understand groomer anxiety. I/we groom Daisy ourselves. Someday I'll tell you that story. It's not pretty.
Hope she gets well fast. Thanks for visiting. I hope to share my decorations soon. We're getting a little festive here.
Have a great week.

Our house has bag balm too. Lee always brings it out when I have an owie boo boo. Why it works miracles and makes cracks in my pads heal up fast and it makes my pads soft again. Why that one sack foot look could become the next fashion statement.
Thank for being a friend

Sue said...

Ouch!!! Looks like you tried to fix it yourself. We do that too. Norma Jean tore a nail a couple years ago and had to wear a bag on her foot when she went outside. She looked pretty silly and didn't like walking in it, but Mom said it helped keep it clean and dry. Listen to your Mom and it'll soon be all well.

We hope your foot gets better real soon!

The Army of Four said...

Oh, you poor thing! We hope the sock and Bag Balm helps your footy-foot get better!
You're much better about wearing a sock than I'd be!

Oh, your poor sore paw! I hope the bag balm works wonders. I'll be especially interested, because Penny often has similar types of problems, but not usually so bad.
