Update: she got stitches & was wearing an e-collar, poor Baby! She has to wear it when we aren't supervising her. I just hate that! She can't do anything then, but I guess its the best so she doesn't get the stitches out. They also found out that she has a heart murmur . And well have to do an ultrasound on her to find out more if she needs pills. Its so expensive . Like four hundred for the neck thing & another 400 for ultrasound! Sounds ridiculous to me . Anyway, I guess we'll have to do it. Anyone have any more info on heart murmurs? Will we have to give her pills for the rest of her life because of it? They say that she has this when she was small. When they were checking her blood pressure they said this. Now she is hiding under the bed so scared . And now she is eating .

Ah, poor Baby - often heart murmurs aren't too serious. You should PM spacemonkey on this one, Scully was just diagnosed with a heart murmur and I know she was looking into tons of research and info on it. I'm sure she could point you in the right direction.

My thoughts are with you and Baby right now!

Thanx Jessica! I'll let you know what the results are for her chin & if we need to give her pills for her heart murmur. I hope we don't have to give her pills for the rest of her life . We still have to go to the vet for the ultrasound though.

Ok, they phoned today, finally!! They are so stupid they don't have a clue what is wrong w/ her . They said maybe its a food allergy & should be put on a special diet. But I'm thinking if they put her on a special diet then how do we know what she is allergic to!? I don't know. we'll see how it goes w/ her chin if anything happens.

You know what I realized if they put her on a special diet then we can maybe tell what she's allergic to like if the vet puts her on a chicken diet & if the bumps come up then she's allergic to chicken. Hmm... now I'm seeing it clearly!

Hopefully everything works out

The best way to determine food allergies is to feed one thing. If they are fine no allergy. It is process of elimination.
