First, got up this morning to find that Sadie went down sometime during the night. Went out right away and started hooking her up to the hoist.
John and Andy and I got her up
Once she was up she sucked down half a bucket of water, and ate her morning grain. We took the splint off to let it get some air. I gave her some pro ios to combat bloat and get her munching on hay.
Checked the wound later and it is closing up, so we will let it air for 24 hours. May put the splint back on and try to leave the wound exposed tomorrow.
Then it rained most of the day so they could not start the roof, maybe tomorrow, no more rain is expected.
We had little guy all afternoon, he took a nap with Papa, and then we had hamburgers, baked beans, and applesauce for dinner.
Then off to do chores!

We are three weeks in now on giving Annie medication. Antibiotics, Tramadol, mobic, not fun! She does seem to be better. Today we took her to a different vet, just for a second opinion. He had us change some things up. She still has a fever, so different antibiotics. He refilled the Tramadol, and wants us to spread out the doses. Still giving the mobic. He also had us add glucosamine chrondroitin, and fish oil. Also suggested a food with those things, so I found a dry food with naturally sourced GC and fish oil in it. Got some cans of wet food to hid all the pills. Gave her a first dose of everything when we got home and now she's sleeping it off in the shade.
