Okay, so I'm hoping some of you can sympathize with me here.
I have had Mira for 9 days. She is 10 weeks old as of last Friday.
I am CONVINCED that she is sick, or going to be sick, or hurting, or ... ANYTHING.
Example: Her first two days here she only pooped once a day. I automatically assumed intestinal blockage, and treated for it.
Ex #2: She threw up on her second day here. (To be expected! She was WAY overwhelmed!) I assumed she had parvo. No, not kidding.
Ex #3: We have a rockery in the back yard. I'm WAITING for her to decide she can leap from it, even though she clearly understands that it is too high.
Ex #4: when she had her one HORRIBLE crying night, I decided she must be hurting. No, I didn't take her out of the kennel.
I am a vet technician. I've dealt with literally thousands of dogs and puppies.
How is it that I NOW turn into worry-crazy mom, even when this isn't my first dog?!
It's driving me up the wall, and my boyfriend too.
She's had her second round of shots, last Thursday. The vet did a full exam, including a fecal test, and she passed with flying colors. So why am I still freaking out?
