I think I'm just really stressed at the moment and paranoid about every little thing! But here are my latest concerns about little Ollie
Whining and moaning.. I don't think he's hurt because it's not sudden or sharp it just seems like his saying "I'm bored I want to moan." It's usually when I pick him up after his woken up or is just chilling on the couch, is it normal?
Yelping... a couple of times his just walking along and yelps and then turns around to look at his back leg. My dad thinks his just strained a muscle and we had a big fight this morning about me wanting to take him to the vet It seems to be on/off because at times he is fine, sprinting around but sometimes he gives a little yelp. He was even limping a little bit this morning so I gave him some time to relax on the couch and he seemed fine afterwards
Scratching.. he seems to scratch quite a bit around his ears and collar? The collar I understand but it's been on for a couple of weeks now.. and he scratches at the base of the ears. They look fine inside, pink and not dirty at all.
And lastly.. sneezing. Should I worry if he sneezes 1-5 times in a day? It doesn't seem to be consistant just random.
My dad is not a fan of "take the dog to the vet with every little problem" If I hadn't spent all my money on Ollie I would be paying for the vet trips myself! I pay for nearly everything else. I can make my own way there (its only a 20 minute walk or so) but I wouldn't have any money to give them.
If something serious ever happened to Ollie I would do my best to raise the money, garage sales, pawn shops, fundraisers, selling lemonade anything I can think of! I would hope that I would have some support from my parents though..
Thanks for listening
