We adopted a young black lab a couple weeks ago (around 1-2 years old) and brought her home to our small farm. While working in the yard last week we let her off her chain and she did very well, she didn't wander off the entire day until I had to go to town, she started to follow me and I told her to go home, well she didn't and when I got home she was gone. After looking everywhere, calling the pound... we were about to print up some fliers and put them in the neighbors mailboxes and at the store when we got a phone call. Seems our dog had made it to the highway (2 miles away) and was hit by a car, she had had an operation but should be fine. After hearing that I went straight to the vet to pick up my dog and pay over $600 for her operation, worth $600 but that is a huge chunk of our budget! Well we get her home and needless to say she has not ran off, she seems to be doing well but now that the swelling has gone down she is passing blood in her stool. We cannot afford anymore vet bills so I am very worried about her, she seems to be doing fine just alot more mellow than before but I'm worried about the blood. Any advise? I thought we were far enough away from the highway to not have to worry about her but obviously I was mistaken and have spent alot of time since teaching her her limits and she is responding well. My main concern right now is her health, I'm not sure if it's the pain meds the Vet put her on that has slowed her down or if it's something else?
