|Maya isn't bad at the vet, but she was very|
However, if one of my girls has a sore paw, a cough, or just isn't feel well, we can't get to the vet fast enough. We noticed on Sunday that Maya was limping a bit, definitely favoring her right front leg, and she was licking her foot like it hurt. We both looked but didn't see any obvious cause, so a trip to the emergency vet didn't seem necessary. Monday morning I called the vet and we went in to have a professional look at it and not see any obvious cause. No puncture, nothing broken, just a pad that she had licked till it was red. Possibly an allergy, like a hot spot, it's hard to say what started it.
|Sticking close to daddy always helps.|
I got some stuff for it, but mostly I need to keep her from licking it so it can heal up. Everyone knows my track record for keeping Maya from doing something she wants to do, but we are trying, and in the meantime it's a great excuse not to be out hiking in this hot, humid weather.

knew we were leaving, she relaxed again.
