The vet seemed very non-plussed by it. He said, "Yep. Those are her ribs." I mentioned that it wasn't boney and sticking out like that on the other side and he felt a little bit more and said, that she might have once broken a rib. ??? How would THAT have happened? Seirously this dog...ugh. But when my friend was there with her little Chi, (and in the operating room watching Maya get spayed) he mentioned doing an x-ray before she woke up; presuming that he is looking at that rib.
I will let you know when I pick her up.
