Last night he started pacing around the house. He paced so much that he started panting. He'd sit down for a second and leap back up and then turn around to look at his back where his stitches are.
Paul and I were so worried about him we called the Emergency Vet and explained what was going on and they said we couldn't really do anything because it was just itching. It was horrible! It went on for 3 hours until he finally exhausted himself and fell asleep.
Today he seems a tad calmer. I spoke to Bernie on the phone while she's driving to WI, and she suggested getting a little Bach's Rescue Remedy that it might calm him down if we put a drop in his water. So Paul ran out this morning to get some, if nothing else we can take it and it'll calm us down! Poor guy! I just hate it that we can't do anything to make him feel better.
Hope you feel better Toby!
Don't know why it took me so long to pick up the current issue of CK but it was probably related to my "pile symdrome"... my habit of piling things and then piling some more things on top of it until I forget what's in a pile! Well I love how Ali used your stuff! I love it! Are you going to CHA next month? I can't remember if I asked you yet. I just found out I will be going... would love to get a chance to meet. :-)
I wish Toby would let us sleep next to him or cuddle him but he doesn't like to sleep with us even when feeling 100% -- he growls at us if we move around in bed! He's a cranky sleeper. He doesn't get the nickname Grumpy T for nothing!
thanks! yeah we got the cream but he FREAKS out when we try to put it on him. Paul hold him down but it's so nervewracking.
I think I'll prob call the vet tomorrow morning when they open and bring him in just to have a quick check on his healing progress.
