Another Puppy Problem

This puppy jumps from one problem to another. Having only just got over the campyla bacter infection he decided to try and leave his crate without removing his paw from the the wire of the crate's side. Another £52 lighter we returned from the vets and Merlyn is blotto after the pain killing injection. This poses a problem only because I am supposed to give him NSAID pain killing syrup on his food and he's too out of it to eat. He looks so relaxed that I'm thinking I want some too !! In the 7 weeks we have had him (he's 15 weeks old today)there has not been 1 week when I haven't either been to or telephoned the vet. Luckily he's so lovely that he's worth all the worry.

Love the picture! But am sorry to hear about your trials with him. I have to agree though that the medicine looks like something I'd like to take once in a while! LOL

Oh poor Merlin!!! Hope he is feeling better today and learned his lesson with the crate and trying to escape.
Lots of Love

Awww, poor little guy! He is so cute, though, how can you get annoyed?! Duffy went through a time period where he'd hurt himself jumping or running... I'd take him to the vet, the vet would check him over, and the whimpering would stop. My DH said he just loves the attention, LOL. I hope Merlin recovers quickly!

What a sweetie Merlyn is!
He's still such a little baby and obviously hasn't learned the art of co ordination yet :>)
He's going to pay you back a hundred fold with undying devotion so, it's money well spent, Sandra :>)
