After she heals, you can keep it beside the swimming pool as a life saver.

Yes! I have a labrador sized inflatable collar as well. One for each arm. Of course, they are different sizes so I might end up swimming in circles....but I'm all for mutli-tasking tools.

Violet has not been herself lately. She is whiny, won't leave my side for a second, 24/7. She is eating and drinking a lot, but has the runs and is having to go pee a lot too. She licks everything in sight, pants constantly and doesn't have her usual energy. Now I know she is almost 10 and has agressive arthritis in her back legs, but I also know her normal energy levels and I haven't seen them lately. So I called the vet.

This is a relatively new vet we have been only seeing for one year, but Violet took to him instantly. She does with most people, though she has only ever had female vets before. Today, he first thing he noted was that she didn't wag her tail when she saw him outside walking into the clinic. And she would not go near him or eat the treat he offered, big signs she wasn't well.

He took blood and urine samples and has told me to keep her off one of her pain meds until the results come back tomorrow. He gave her a probiotic for nausea which he said could be the licking, drinking, panting and clinginess. He also gave us something for the diarhea. Now to get an extra 4 pills into her at dinner time. She is so sneaky it is impossible to get down the ones she already takes. And I can't give her any extras except the pill pockets we get from there.

You woud think I was talking about a child - but she and Monkey are our furkids! I really hope it is nothing too serious.

Oh Violet! LP, I sent you a PM. Beagle had similar symptoms a while back and scared me to death.
