Default Willow just scared the life out of me

She fell down the stairs. I didn't know she'd gotten into the hallway, she'd gone up stairs and when I realised she wasn't in the living room I called her and in we excitement to get down the stairs to me she tripped and fell down the stairs. I practically ran to the vets. Luckily they were still open as there isn't usually a bet there outside of walk in and appointment times apparently.

He says she's fine. She hasn't broken anything, she's alert, her chest is clear, no internal bleeding. He said because she's small and young her bones probably just gave and that it was provably more of a shock for her and me than anything. He's given her an injection for pain and shock and said to give her some food and let her sleep somewhere warm so she's eaten normally and she's lying on my chest in a blanket asleep.

We'll be trying to find a dog/baby gate with small enough gaps and looking into insurance like we've been meaning to. I'm still in shock. And rich took my purse to work today so I have no money on me. He's on his way back now via the vet to go pay because they let me have until this evening to settle the bill. Now I'll have to go to work this evening and I don't want to leave her on her own

oh, I am so glad shes ok. We have really steep stairs too and I've been telling myself to get a babygate. Miya goes up and down them without any trouble, but I'd rather be safe than sorry!

oh nooo poor baby!! I am glad she is ok. If you can't find a baby gate with small enough gaps, you can buy some plastic mesh and put it on with sturdy tie wraps. Thats what we had done in the beginning when we were terrified she would go out on the balcony and jump over the ledge. There was no way she could have..but as Tiffany said, better safe than sorry.

Give your girly extra hugs from Kalisee. What a fright!

Oh no Melissa! Poor willow! But I'm so happy she's ok! These little babies are pretty resilient and usually bounce right back. I wouldn't want to leave her either!! Just relax and give her lots of kisses from us! And yes, a baby gate is a must!! We have a couple. I would suggest (if u can find one) a baby gate with a door so you and rich don't trip over it. Hope you have a better rest of your day love! Xox

Good to know she is ok. We got a nice gate from Kmart. They have several with smaller openings.

Oh gosh, poor baby girl So glad shes ok hun.

Good call going to the Vets - i do feel for you xx

Honey got through a babygate when she was tiny, so i bought some bamboo screening (like from a garden centre) and fixed it to it. She couldnt get past as there were no gaps and it didnt look too bad either!
