Sunday night, Misty had a poopy accident in her crate. So Monday night, I wanted to take them out later for a last trip. I am suppose to be walking her on a leash, but have not been doing so, as she isn't one to go potty on leash. Plus, it is really difficult for me to get her leash on her. I was also hurting, falling asleep, etc. So, since we were justing going out for a short trip, I also took Arwen w/ us, instead of doing their trips separately.
I'm not sure if Misty slipped on the leaves at the top of the steps, if she didn't see the edge, or she got bumped by her sister, but... Misty fell down a flight of concrete steps. 😥😢
My neighbor came and carried her up the steps. He set her down on the ramp and she gingerly walked up it and into the house. After getting a drink, she got in her crate. I was relieved. It seemed like she just needed to rest and let the meds she had taken an hour ago, work.
This morning (Wednesday), she needed help getting out of her crate. She was able to walk into the kitchen, after a brief struggle to get on her feet. While she stood at the water bowl getting a drink, I noticed she was dropping urine.
I called and talked to Belinda, as she would need to be the one to take her anywhere. Her thought was it was Misty's body reacting to the steroids and the fall. She suggested I take wait and watch approach. While taking to her, Misty threw up all the water and a bit of solid (I assume whatever food was still in her stomach from night before?). She wouldn't eat her pill pocket w/ meds, but I was able to get her meds into her. Amazing how strong and defient a dog can be when it involves 3 tiny pills... 🙄😮
Got her back in her crate so she'd rest, but also to keep her bratty sister from bothering her. She slept, soundly until after 5.
Around 5, I got her out. I had to pull her out. Gave her some water. She was much more alert than she had been earlier. She ate a coupe of small biscuits.
She did eat her dinner, drank some more water, and is alert. Physically, she is back where she was a week ago, except she now has a drop of urine.
I am absolutely sickened that I let this happen. My lack of judgement could be her end. 😢😥
