Does anyone know a good low cost vet in Bandon that is available on Saturday? Blizzard started limping yesterday and is really favoring his right front paw this morning. He may have picked up a sticker, but several of us have checked but can't feel anything in his paws. He's 13 (human years) and is slowing down, but he was holding up his right front paw this AM. You may PM me any info you have if you don't want to post here.

If there is a vet, or vet tech here at the gathering, that would be wonderful too. Right now we're calling him gimpy.

Thank you all in advance. Blizzy is the one on the right, in a pic from home last month. They just got back from the groomers.

If you really want vet help on the weekend, you'll probably have to scope out what's available in Roseburg, and go there.

Not sure about a vet, but there some some nasty burrs in the grass around the meeting area at Bullard's Beach. Tashi picked one up a couple years ago, but we were able to get it out ourselves. They're tiny, but not when they are between a dogs toes.
There's a groomer on the other side of town who may be able to help...right off the highway on the road to the beaches.

Called and made an appointment with Ocean Boulevard Veterinary Hospital at 2:40 PM today to have Blizzy checked out and hopefully see what the problem is.

During the morning walk he was limping less and a longer walk about 45 minutes ago he's limping much less, but I'm still taking him in to get checked out.

Thank you so much to everyone for their helpful input. I'll post an update after the vet visit. We're in A03, in the shiny new 2014 Escape 19.

Blizzy update

Went to Ocean Boulevard Veterinary Hospital and they were very helpful. No burrs, or sticky things in Blizzy's paws. Just old age. We figure going from a hot arid valley climate to a humid coastal area and jumping down a little to hard on his front paw(s) caused some inflammation in his right elbow. Doctor prescribed an anti-inflammatory 2X/day and we can come back if needed on Monday.

Blizzy is feeling a little better and give a day or so for the medication to work, it should help make him more comfortable.

A big thank you from all of us to all of those who helped. The fiberglass community is a wonderful family.

The Oregon Gathering is where Escape sells more trailers. In 2009 it was the 19ft, last year was the 21ft and this year is the 21ft 5th wheel. Saturday trailer tours are fun people can show their mods.
