You WON'T believe what happened to my poor dog. She is a Chinese Shar Pei, named Mitie Me. We were opening presents Christmas morning and I was sitting in a Mission Rocker, on hardwood floors. I didn't know she was sitting on floor next to me. All of a sudden, HUGE YELP, and she went running. I thought, oh, poor baby, I rocked on her toes. But she ran off, then ran upstairs. We continued on, opening gifts. Then my son decided to go up and check on her. He came down and said her toenails looked a little crooked, but we decided they were already crooked. Few minutes later, daughters' boyfriend goes into kitchen. Um, there's blood ALL OVER out there. I go out, HOLY COW, there are POOLS of blood, not just drips. All over floor, on cabinets, doorjambs. Looks like axe murder. I call her downstairs and she comes down. I'm looking her over and I don't see anything. Feet look okay, belly, nipples okay. So I put her up on the counter to look her over, and NOTHING. UNTIL, OMG !!! Ugh, I was cringing, couldn't even speak, just gasp and moan. Her TAIL was broke off, and bone was exposed! And bleeding slightly ! My poor baby ! I called Emergency Vet and they didn't expect it would stop bleeding and she would have to come in. Luckily it mostly stopped in 5-10 minutes, so they said she could wait until next day and see her regular vet. So, Tuesday, I bring her to her vet and she had to have surgery to remove more of the tail, so they close the skin around the end. My POOR dog. I felt SO bad. She had a lot of anxiety most of the day, and was on Pain meds and antibiotics. She seems FINE today, and doesnt seem to need pain meds at all. But MAN, was it TRAUMATIC. The end.
