My poor sweet baby!!! :*((( Update: Home from surgery *pics*
This morning I dropped my dog off at the groomer. I headed back home to do everything I was supposed to do yesterday but didn't because of the bee situation. About 20 minutes later I got a call from the groomer. It was a man who identified himself as a manager. My heart sank...I knew something was wrong. He said that the groomer had gotten her dewclaw caught in the clippers. The dewclaw ripped most of the way out and the clippers mangled the skin and tissue in the area. The manager asked for permission to have the on site vet check her out. I said yes and said I was on my way.
When I got there I went to the vet and Savannah wasn't there. All they had done was wrap up her leg and dump her back in a cage in the groomer's. The manager said that she would need the claw removed and offered to have it done at their vet. I said NO and took Savannah to our vet. I got the manager's card and he said he would talk to someone else to see whether they would pay our vet bill.
Our vet took a look and said that she needs surgery :( The claw needs to be removed. There is tissue hanging off that needs to be removed. The remaining tissue needs to be glued back together. She will be on 5 different meds. She is back there now getting ready for surgery and I am sitting in the exam room bawling!!!
Update: Savannah is home and is really doped up, lol. I spoke with another manager who was much more helpful. She paid the vet bill and prepaid a follow up visit. She also is paying for Savannah to be groomed at a different groomer since she was only half done. She was much more apologetic and kind than the employees I spoke with earlier. She is getting me a copy of the incident report and she gave lovie a box of milkbones.
Savannah has her foot bandaged and isn't really walking much. She is so pitiful :( She's getting lots of hugs and treats, though.
I'll post a few pics on page 4.
