Shiro’s Injury

May 13, 2009

The Sis here. The boys were playing, running around chasing each other and play fighting as usual. My Dad and brother were the only ones home and out of the room. They heard a crash and ran in to see what had happened. Shiro was lying under the table with his front legs out in front of them and he couldn’t get up. My Dad and brother were afraid that he had slammed his legs of a chair rung under the table and broken them both. They had to find a vet that was still open, and travelled about an hour to a 24 hour vet. The vet took x-rays and no bones were broken. He gave Shiro a shot for the pain and some pills. He said it was a deep tissue injury, like a bruise under the skin in the muscle. He is walking a little more gingerly now, but other than that seems like usual. Keep Shiro in your thoughts and prayers though, that he will heal quickly, have no complications, and not get hurt again.

    I really hope Shiro will feel better soon!!! And will chew the chair as revenge. (joking, I am not giving any ideas to him or anything). I’ll think good thoughts and hopefully they’ll help him to heal!

    Hope Shiro’s leg heals fast. Our Kimiko had a pulled ligament earlier this year and was on 6 weeks “reduced activity” — we know that “reduced activity” is hard for a Shiba!
