She has been in the vet hospital since Moday night. Her body has been really ouchie for about 2 weeks. Every time we would pick her up she would cry and she kept crying in her sleep. At first we thought it was her legs, went to the vet took x rays and nothing was found, sent her home with pain meds. Four days later she was worse. Its hard to explain but her belly dropped kinda like a hernia. More x rays, still nothing. After tons of tests she has a bad infection caused from trauma. They put an IV in her for stong pain meds and antibotics. Now she has a drain in her belly. Probably the other dogs playing to rough, not sure. I will be able to bring her home but Im scared to death. With that drain Im going be a nervous wreck.  :-SS

Any suggestions?

Oh my, poor Zora....What could have happened? I imagine it's possible that it could have happened in play, but kinda strange...So, you are bringing her home with the drip? I would say you would need to keep her isolated, possibly crated or use a baby playpen or something...Obviously she needs to stay quiet, yea right, she's a Boxer puppy....Sendings tons of healing vibes to Zora and hoping she gets well real soon :)
