All that for a seed? Is it the bristle type that embeds in the skin and travels?

Yes. Messed up hey? The vet told us about a rotty that ended up paralysed. The seed went into the spine and took a blade of grass with it.

That is scary.  My old vet did a surgery on a dog that had a traveling seed.  It ended up taking a full day to find it. The owners couldn’t pay the bill, so they signed the dog over to the vet’s office.  They also didn’t want the dog anymore. It was very sad but they saved the dog and found a new home for it.  The vet paid for the surgery.

Yes it was but the vet got cancer and died. They don’t make them like that anymore, cared more about dogs than money.

Now I have to deal with dumb grass seeds. I had to pull bear from training because he was limping but I couldn’t figure out why. Then I noticed him licking his paw. Now he’s got this giant lump that needs to get drained.

Don’t know yet. Would’ve been easier to find if he wasn’t a fur ball.
