A hurried trip to the Emergency Animal Clinic. Of course, the occurrence was a typical weekend one. A quick look, no medication for any pain relief. A grave outlook was predicted and received with, "we won't give up on our Quinnie." (So sweet, no complaints, and so very compliant.)
A trip to her Vet, and although initially a short recovery was anticipated this was not to be. Talk of alternatives, of which there were three; the last, "nobody wants to talk about." We opted for the first, with support and encouragement, which amounted to a four week Atlantic Veterinary Hospital stay. Very special care there, an optimistic prognosis, and anticipation of a lengthy recovery period.
