    Bella is going in to have her paw opened up in an attempt to find what we think is a foreign object, in 2 hours.
    Fasting after 7pm last night was a bit tricky, but fortunately she isn't asking so much this morning, and has also accepted that she wont be getting any water.

    I will be updating this thread.

    Thanks everyone.

    She is really bothering her paw trying to get the bandage off so I'm thinking a basket muzzle might be a kinder option than a buster colalr for tonight. She is by my side but I wont be able to sleep knowing what she might do...

    Back at the vets first thing tomorrow for a post - op check up!

    Poor Bella :( I think the muzzle is a good idea it wont be for long & better than her getting the dressing off :)

    So an update.

    Bella is hardly limping and seems to be over the effects of the sedation - so I have a frustrated girl who hasnt had her proper walk and wants to bite her bandage off!!

    We went to a park (not the busy dog park) and sat on the grass for an hour to pass time. We watched some kids playing football and some other kids playing tennis, and made a few wees, but that was is.

    No dinner until 11pm tonight so Bella keeps passing by her food bowls hoping for something - 2 hours to go and she'll get!

    We have a basket muzzle for tonight. even though she sleeps with me I'm worried she'll get up to mischief while I'm asleep...or option 2 I dont sleep so Bella doesnt wear the muzzle - we'll see.

    So we re back at the vets 9am tomorrow to see how little Bella is doing:)
