Meter reader hit our dog

Recommended Posts

Our old dog was fine yesterday morning.  I had our puppy out in the pasture with our cows and saw the meter reader come up.  Yesterday afternoon she was acting weird.  Then today when I was about to leave to get my kids from school I saw a swollen purple area under her hip and she would not sit down.  Went to try to look at it and she yiped and nosed my hand away.  

Going to have to take her to the vet in the morning.  Feel bad I did not know earlier this morning I could have gotten her in after taking my kids to school.  Hoping she just has swelling in her hip but I know she needs an xray and hoping no internal injuries.  My kids are going to be really tore up if she is not able to be fixed up.  

I watched back on our security cameras and the driveway camera shows her being thrown into my fence but it was too far down the driveway to be very clear.  And shows what looks like a tire tread mark on her left hip as she walks back past the camera coming back to the house.  He was going way too fast on our gravel drive. 

Seriously thinking I am going to call the utility company and try to make them pay vet bills. At the very least will be pushing that the meter reader was going too fast on my property and I won't have it.

Damn straight, the the utility company should be paying any vet bills. You would thing the person would have the dignity to tell you they hit your dog. Good luck my friend

She got lucky, she has been a tough dog. X ray showed nothing broken and her hip was not dislocated, vet said just some heavy bruising.  Treating her with anti inflammatories.  She seems to be feeling a bit better today.
