Poor Lady, it really hasn't been a good year for her hooves. This morning she didn't want to get up because she was in a lot of pain. Alex, who is Lady's vet, came to see her and she was taken into hospital straight away - with me by her side of course!
Lady's new fashionable shoes were taken off so Alex could see what was causing such pain. I too had a nose so that I could report back to Lady all that was going on. After some investigating and foot x-rays, it looked like Lady had an abscess with pus trapped inside her hoof. Only way to relieve this was for Alex to drain the pus. I don't know how Lady was feeling about this, but it made me feel a bit weak at the knees. However, as best friends go, I wasn't about to let Lady down, so I stood by her side all the way through.
I'm not sure how long we'll be staying in hospital, but the stable is very comfortable with a lovely sawdust bed for Lady to rest on. I've found a tasty bucket of food too. If you want to leave Lady a get well message, just post a comment below and I'll pass it on to her. I'm sure it will make her feel a lot better knowing you are thinking of her.
