I kid you not...within minutes after yesterday's post about Stella was published she came limping over to me. Her left hind leg ligament tore.
This story is not made up!
When the first ligament tore (on the right leg) the vet warned us the left one would eventually tear, as there was already damage showing. But he figured it would be a year or two before that would happen....not 5 weeks after the other one.
So as I type this out she is back in surgery to repair the left leg. We are just stunned this happened so soon and without her doing anything more than walking outside to potty.
She will be at the vet for two days just like last time and then home for weeks of crating, carrying her out to potty and lots of pain meds. My heart just breaks for her and I am crying some for my bank account.
