- And got the T-shirt
Did they x-ray to see whether the elbow truly was broken? And to check for arthritis?
If she's in a cage with other pigs, I'd put a divider in so her movement is restricted and her cagemates can't bother her. Don't totally separate them, just put up a divider in the same cage.
They said it was already healing so they never did anything besides the pain meds... and yes they did check for arthritis but just by a “feeling” test, no X-rays. They told us the X-rays would just be confirming what they already knew so they didn’t want to take them and spend our money if they didn’t need to. But they seemed super confident so I believe them since we’ve taken other GPs there in the past.
I am nervous about arthritis now though, Is there a way to tell if that’s what it could be? I feel really bad for her and am going to set up an appt tomorrow I think.
