...And now it's Pitanga's turn to be ill

Well, my weel of doggie missfortunes continues!

Yesterday Pitanga was not herself, not interested in running around or playing with her friends. Took her temperatura and she had a fever, and as I moved her tail, she yelped in pain, so it was X-ray time.

The x-ray revealed an image that is typical of a disc infection, that is very very painful. She has started her antibiotics and is on very powerful painkillers, just to keep her able to go outside to pee and poo with a minimum confort. She is still in a lot of pain, does not want to eat or move and needs to be resting at least for the next month.

It's heartbreaking to look at her like this, but the treatment should make her better, and in a couple of days most of the pain should be gone for good. Then will come the hard part, wich is keeping her quiet after the pain is gone, to make sure her spine heals properly and there will be no more complications from this problem.

I just hope she fully recovers and that the pain will be gone soon, I really hate looking at my girl in pain... =(
