“Looey” (Shih Tzu)… KC name; Louie King of Charm
Looey has been there for a week as he somehow slipped a disc half way down his spine and therefore urgently needed treatment. After a MRI scan for 2.5hrs and being told the 3 options. A blood clot from a stoke in his spine or a tumor or best bet a slipped disc/trapped nerve. Thank God it was the latter of the 3. Then, 2 minutes later he was under the knife for a 5.5hr op`.
Thank God I had the top level of insurance cover on Looey or my daughter would have been minus her “307cc”. To cover the approx total bill of around £5,000 (so far). He has his 13 steel staples out next week at local vets and back to the “QMHA” in a months time.
Lost use of back legs for now but feeling is returning, can stand for around 10 seconds. Its like looking after a one month old Baby. Not that I am complaining at all. As the Ad goes “He is Worth It”… Daily routine of massages to get his back legs working again, hand feeding and car rides. Updates to follow…
20th October 2012
Since Looey arrived home he has been getting total of 16 hours sleep everyday.
Except when Steve “Tourettes” Newland is here its more like 20 hours sleep everyday.
Off to the QMHA for 1400hrs next Wednesday for first main checkup no doubt the M25 will be on its best behavior.
Till next time…….
Insured thru “Pet-plan” under their “Ultimate Cover” range. I can thoroughly recommend insurance for your pets. Even just a Basic cover at least. Otherwise the costs can spiral like a Sam Missile. Love your pet pooch? Get it covered…
