    Well Puzzle is having to go back to the vets again with a possibly infected tail wound after getting bits of thorn stuck in it!

    This dog can't seem to keep out of the vets, in the past 6 months she has had:
    Nasty ulcer on her eye due to grass seed, 4 trips, 2 with an ophthalmology specialist
    Cut on tail that nearly resulted in tail amputation due to it not healing, 3 visits
    Allergic conjunctivitis, 1 visit
    Torn ligament in foot, 7 visits, 1 with an orthopedic specialist and 1 lot of x-rays

    Her insurance has certainly paid for itself this year. We thought barley was bad with visits to the vet, but it seems that she has overtaken him already in 2 years compared to his nearly 7 years with us.

    Oh no, I hope she's ok . They do go through stages of being accident prone I think. Fingers crossed her tail is ok x

    Hope she's better soon and that 2016 sees minimal need for the vet!
