UPDATE: REBOUND IS HAVING SURGERY AT HIS OWN VET AND I'LL BE ABLE TO PICK HIM UP TONIGHT ON MY WAY HOME FROM WORK. :(
We hear it is messy messy when they are home....eeeekkkk
It all started innocently enough...Husband asked...."you want to go for a walk" when I came through the door....sure... 50ish degrees out and we think its summer.... came home to hang out and sat down to dinner a little before 7PM... finished up dinner and Husband reached down to pat Rebound who had snuggled his way over to the table (as usual) as soon as we had put down our forks... When Husband ran his hand over Reebsie's ear he let out a little cry and Husband realized it was all swollen!!!
:( We immediately called the vet who of course is not OPEN at 7:45 at night and they tell us to head to the Animal ER to have it drained right away and that he should def. be seen TONIGHT.... off we go to the city (Tracy stop laughing at that comment) only to find out that this is "very normal", it probably just happened
tonight so you are safe to wait until you can get in to see your vet tomorrow... let's give him a lampshade so he doesn't scratch at it...that will be $130.00 please. WHAT!?!?!?! SERIOUSLY? We were TOLD he had to come right in and have it drained... now we find out, you can ACTUALLY let it heal on its own, though then he has the potential to look like Evander Holyfield's cauliflower ears (sorry if I totally butchered the spelling of his name ~ and if he doesn't actually HAVE cauliflower ears...) so surgery would help them not get all wrinkley with scar tissue....Sad....poor Rebound.... Home at 10ish... still had to put together the lasagna for dinner tonight and pick up the mess that we left when we literally RAN out of the house.... The WORST part of this whole thing (besides the $130?!) Husband called Sky and Daws to have them pray and the poor girl LOST it... she canNOT handle anything happening to her best friend... poor thing. Don't worry baby... neither can we... neither can we.....
Off to call OUR vet.... :(
