    Default Jingles for my donkey, Ms. Indy

    Ah, just shit. My sweet donkey!!!!!!!! Just found out her hip is displacing, and its possible her pelvix is fractured. We are xraying tomorrow, but really, I guess there is nothing they can do with that hip, regardless of the pelvis. I am heading home anyway, but will not be there until tuesday, and told my mom to do whatever she needed to do. She apparently LOOKs fine, and is just out grazing with her BFF. She loves those three things in life - my mom, grass and her BFF, and she has them. But do not want to risk potential agony for her.

    The vet isn't able to pop the displaced hip back in place? Poor baby. Jingling for happy outcome.

    Hugs,

    Aw,thank you so much! Just devastated. I am not sure why but apparently vet is not able to KEEP it in place - so that it will keep popping out or something? I was hoping there would be some kind of little brace for her to hold it in, but no. ANd just when she is looking great, out there grazing, getting around, looking happy, ecstatic to see my mom - she follows mom around the pasture. The xray will show whether or not the pelvis is fractured, but really, I guess that is not as relevant to the hip thing. I was hoping for another 15 years at least with her... thanks again for all the jingles!!!

    well donkeys can be pretty stoic, so can be hard to tell about pain. She is not really weight bearing on it, just the toe.She will stand on it to graze but she is not really putting much weight on that leg. She does not SEEM to be in pain but she sure does NOT like that area messed with. She is getting bute.If you just look at her, she looks very happy and relaxed. But I am sure hoping for something , and thanks for the jingles!!!

    Well thank you all so much for the jingles! Apparently they were able to get pictures without knocking her out, and it showed that the pelvis is not fractured. However, the cup where the hip bone sits is missing chunks. Not a happy prognosis but not, according to the vet, time to call the backhoe. There is pretty much someone there 24/7, and,as she is fed 4x a day, and taken out for "special grazing" and so forth, a lot of eyes on her. Its a day by day thing but she is very happy, out there with her BFF, grazing, always looking to see if my mother might be coming out, poking her nose over the stable door in search of treats. Thanks again for all the great COTH jingles!

    lilitiger2, I'm so glad the news isn't really bad. It must be a huge relief. I've had 3 donks, 2 minis and a standard, and they are the most intelligent, wonderful creatures. Your girl is adorable and it sounds like she has a great life.
