We had a little emergency trip to the vet last night after a wild frap session resulted in a hurt leg ;-< Chewey was frapping through the house and out the backdoor just as someone was coming in and he bounced off the door and into some patio furniture. I guess he must have caught his back leg along the way because he let out some blood-curdling cries for several minutes and then wouldn't put any weight on his leg...;-/p>
So, rather than second guess myself all night about whether or not he had broken something or he should be taken to the vet I took him to the emergency vet... So about $500 later (for exam, xrays, meds) the good news was there were no broken bones! But one of the things that the vet pointed out was that it looked like he had been shot with a bb or pellet gun at some point, given that the pellet/bb was still there. The vet said bb but my other half thought it looked more like a pellet from a pellet gun. I don't know enough about either to have an opinion. Unbelievable... who would do that???
He's a rescue and we've had him for about a year and a half so it's been there longer than that, since I'm sure it didn't happen since we've had him (no opportunity). Anyways, done venting....it just made me so angry. You can see it in this image up near his spine... What do you all think - bb or pellet? Or something else?
