Injuries on the Farm

 

Within a few weeks we had three injuries. Our miniature donkey, Ellie, got horned by one of the goats. A horn went through her temple. We called out Dr. Steve, and when he came out the first time, I could not catch Ellie. She ran all over the pasture. I even took carrots out to her, but she was too smart. Dr. Steve has given her shots before, so getting near her with him at the farm was a no go.

Dr. Steve finally told me…Kimberly, I have another appointment. I’ll swing back by around three. I finally caught her, and put her in one of the stables. He came back, gave her a shot, and cleaned, and added a paste to her wound.

The next week Salem escaped the stall where he and his brother live. He gashed his chin open, so Sabrina had to take him to the vet. Dr. Steve only takes care of “horns and hooves”, so she drove Salem to the vet to get stitches. He had to wear a cone for a week.

The very next day, Gucci went to doggie day spa. They discovered a growth on her hind leg. I picked her up from the spa that even and took her to the emergency vet hospital. She was in a cone for three days. One of the days she acted as “winery dog” for the day.

Everyone is on the mend, and doing much better!
