Late in the day, on December 16, Draigah got hit by a car. She never just runs into the road, but for some reason this time she did. She might have been thinking about something else, but I don't know. From 20 feet off the road, she just ran straight out into the road and got clipped by a car. After she was hit, she rolled off the road and was trying to get up and farther away but she couldn't. Of course the whole time I was freaking out and crying and holding her. She was sill able to walk and put some pressure on her front left leg, but I could tell she was in pain. I loaded her up in my Aunts truck and rode with her back to my house. She laid down in the living room and I doctored up her front left leg and back left leg, then she immediately got up and went and saw her babies. The next morning, my mom came over and we took her to the vet. He said that it looked like she just had bruising and gave her some anti-inflammatory and pain medication. For the first two days, I brought all of her food and water to her, helped her in and out of her whelping box to be with her pups, on and off he couch and carried her outside and back in. Since day two, she has gotten more independent and keeps getting better everyday.
Her outside injuries were scrapes on her back paw and a heart shaped place on her front leg. Here are the photos from that followed by the photos I took this week.
