Belle Update

My mom talked to the vet. They sedated Belle, took some head x-rays (not dental), poked around her mouth, listened to her nose and could not find anything really wrong. The vet said that there was some discoloration and some swelling. The vet said if there were anything UP the nose there would be a mucous discharge. He is going to give her a steroid shot in the nose to lower the inflammation and from there we just watch her to see if there are more changes. My mom might do some research on the web (she is a librarian) which has helped before.

Meanwhile she will pick Belle up after work and bring her back to us. So it's not sad news. For now, Belle is okay and she will have a shot to help with the pain.

My mom says thanks for all the good thoughts and paws and butts crossed--they worked!!
