Back Leg Woes

It's been a while since i did one of these because well everything has been a bit up in the air lately. But as things are calming down i thought i'd come and tell you about my little Benji baby.
Well for starters he turned 10 months old yesterday.
However, recently he's been having trouble with his back legs (mainly the back left leg). After a course of anti-inflammatory meds from the vets he seemed okay for a day or two before his left leg started playing up again. Basically he won't put his back left leg on the ground, we have to get him to sit down and then he's alright. Sometimes he'll yelp but usually he just looks at you as if to say 'what do i do?' So i've made some phone calls and found out it'll cost me £250 for him to get x-rays, thankfully my insurance covers it. It's going to take me a few weeks to get the money needed as i have to pay the first £90 & and then 10% after that meaning i'll be paying about £106 i think and then other insurance stuff, which is small fry compared to making sure my baby is okay.
Anyway, apart from that his suspected dry eye seems to have cleared up. His eyes are hardly gunky at all anymore, which is great.
I'll let you know more about the x-rays and stuff as they happen.
Until next time!
Sophie & Benji! =D
