More on these later. If you have a medical background (or a dog with the same problem) they speak for themselves. I'm considering spending the money for digital x-rays, but they will probably tell the same story, only more clearly. Like that country song, "...you should have seen it in color."

This has nothing to do with the badness, but see the things that look like stitches off to the left of her spine in the middle? Those are her surgical staples put in by the pound for her spay. You can feel them under her skin. Yuck. Why couldn't they stitch her up or use glue like a regular vet?
