So I freaked out big time looking at Boonie’s tail. It looks weird and I thought it was gangrene

Today I have to go on holiday. I say have too bcos I feel bad about it cos of leaving her. And my mum pAid for holiday so I can’t be nasty to mum either

Anyway thankfully there is a vet now looking after her for the week and he is great. And obviously as I was freaking out he looked at her b4 I left to see what’s up. And he says it’s not gangrene it’s like she’s perhaps snapped her tail ?
Poor baby. And the bone is fine but the skin tissue is dying. But he says its treatable but may require surgery that’s the only scary part just bcos any surgery is scary

So I’m relieved some but still a little worried but he is a wonderful vet and I’m so happy he’s personally looking after her and that it’s not gangrene. I cried so much last night and spent way too long looking at terrible gangrene photos on the net

Gosh I love my Boonie. ❤️

This vet is going to regularly message me on Facebook whilst I’m away so I can hopefully relax a bit.
