A visit by the Vet is due.
Eventually while she was sleeping I managed to have a look and noticed that the dew claw on one of her back legs has grown into a complete circle and the end has embedded itself into the flesh causing what appears to be an abscess.
I was quite shocked that I hadn't noticed it before, although it's sometimes difficult to see dew claws on long-haired dogs. Of couse as soon as I attempted to touch her leg she cried so I had to back off.
Mr A has just phoned the vet in Milas and it's necessary for Beki to have an anaesthetic so that the vet can cut all the dew claws and the rest of her nails, and deal with the abscess.
As we don't have transport and Mr A is in Kusadasi at the moment, the vet has kindly offered to drive out to the village at 8am tomorrow...I assumed to collect Beki and take her back to his premises. But no, he will administer the anaesthetic here in the house and deal with the problems.
I'm a little anxious about this, but I guess I will just have to put my trust in the vet and hope he knows what he's doing.
Keep your fingers crossed for Beki please...I'll let you know how it goes.
