Dog in a cone

Following on from her adventures in Margate, Agnes has had a sore toe.

It started as a small lump of fur (or a burr) stuck between her pads and then after a couple of days of well-intentioned licking, it developed into a very sore and swollen toe which wasn’t healing despite salt baths, antibiotic cream and anti-inflammatories from the vet.

With the threat of an estimated £300 vet bill for exploratory surgery, it seemed it was time for the cone of shame in order to let things heal. Poor Agnes, at least she looks good in blue!

The Cone of Shame

The toe is healing nicely now that she’s stopped licking it so it looks as though we’ll be able to set off on our adventure bright and early on Saturday morning.
