I took Nadja in for her spay today. I also wanted her teeth examined, and wanted to get her hips x-rayed, because she's very wobbly when she walks, limps on her left leg, and shows signs of pain after too much exercise.
During the spay my vet discovered a mass of some sort in one of Nonny's ovaries, so we're going to send that off for a biopsy. Think healthy thoughts for her, please? I hope it's benign. I guess we'll know in a few days.
Her teeth were good though! Yay!
The x-rays revealed -- get this -- either a bb pellet or buckshot lodged in her left thigh. No wonder she's limping. No wonder, also, that she gets so terribly spooked by strangers holding items in their hands. You think maybe, just maybe, it could be because SOMEONE SHOT HER?!?!?
I am having extreme rage moments towards her previous owners. They better hope they NEVER, EVER meet me in a dark alley.
I'm gonna go pick her up in an hour. I hope she's not in too much pain right now. I feel so bad that she's had to go through all this, at her age! I'm incredibly glad, however, that I got her spayed. Hopefully this thing in her ovary is either benign or was caught in time.
