    Had 2 hours sleep last night, Bella was crying and panting all night and she had very little sleep and even when she did sleep she still cried. I rang the emergency vet at 6am and took her in. When she got on the table she wet herself. It was so sad to see. She's in there at the moment and is receiving pain killing injections every 4 hours as the pills are not helping her pain. I'm waiting for a phone call to see if I can pick her up later. The positive is that the wound looks like it improving so I'm holding onto that glimmer of hope. I know this is a painful thing for her, I can't understand why her pain's been difficult control. Anyway fingers crossed I'll get her home tonight. And thank you all again for the kind words and support. This is the best site EVER x

    Hi,
    You poor thing. When Leo's abcess broke I had to clean the wound like you and like Bella he was not impressed

    I used to put him in the sink and just douce his bottom with warm water. He tolerated that and it really helped.
    Hope you get her back tonight.

    Well the vet called and they are keeping her tonight and possibly the weekend. She still won't walk and is still in discomfort despite being heavily drugged. She has asked me not to be alarmed but she suspects that there is possible a tumour. When she originally examined Bella at the begining of the week there was a lump which she thought was an abcess/infection. Now that there has been the burst this lump has not gone down and it is a solid mass. They will keep giving her the pain relief and antibiotics for the next couple of days but if by Monday the lump is still there, they will do a biopsy. Obviously I am writing this in tears and I do know that not all tumours are bad but I can't help being upset. This lump is probably why the pain has been so bad. I saw her tonight at the vets and put my fleece in with her and moved on to it and wagged her tail for the first time in days.
    Will you say a prayer for my little darling, I miss her so much. x

    Oh, this is so hard to read about and so upsetting to think of what you are all going through. I think it's the saddest thing in the world when you have to leave a suffering dog in the hands of other people, however capable and caring. You just so much want to do everything for them yourself, don't you, and especially keep them by you in a familiar place.

    There are very many of us here who have been through the same kind of trouble, so we all hope the vibes will reach out to you and give you as much comfort and support as is possible.

    Lots of loving thoughts to you and Bella and hoping for better news over the weekend, Marie-Anne and 3 little Cavs in Worcestershire, UK.

    I hope she's over the worst of it now, and you manage to have her home for the weekend.
    Thinking of you.

    I am so sad to hear that Bella is still feeling bad. Definitely sending prayers and healing thoughts your way. Hopefully, your vet will be able to help her really soon. Stay strong, please keep us posted on how Bella is doing.
