Thanks for all your lovely comments wishing Lily a speedy recovery. We’ve been to the vets today and her wound is healing really well, BUT she’s having a phantom pregnancy. Now there had been some subtle changes in Lily’s behaviour over the past month but the vet and I both agree that since she is such a ‘character’ (ie. Odd bod) that it was difficult for either of us to tell whether there was something wrong with her or whether she was just being, well, odd. There were no physical signs of anything but the vet warned me that some of the behaviour I’d described could point to a phantom pregnancy, but that the behaviour in most dogs was very pronounced and that in Lily’s case there were very subtle signs that could just be down to her getting more comfortable in her still relatively new environment.
