Default i'm supposed to REST her??!

crazy red dog came up lame on saturday after wild zoomies in the yard. the moment i've been waiting for for the past three years total wingnut pit bull with poor structure who likes to do high speed u-turns on grass. blown cruciate waiting to happen.

THANKFULLY it's not blown. she's "possibly" got a very minor tear, but nothing that rest and NSAIDs shouldn't fix.

emphasis on the rest part.


oh dear.

it's going to be an interesting couple of weeks.

funny how a dog can go from toe-touching lame to just barely limping in the space of one car ride and the walk through the parking lot and through the front door of the vet clinic

Yikes! I can't even imagine trying to keep Meg quiet for more than a couple of days. One day of being lazy, she'll give me. I just pay for it the day after .

I did survive months of stall rest with the horse, though. Best advice I can give - lots and lots of mental stimulation. Every time the horse gets hurt, the clicker comes out! He is a bit accident prone, so he has quite the list of tricks.

Good luck with the wild woman!

I feel your pain . . . When Kharma got shot in the foot it was more than I could do to keep her quiet. She ended up shattering the hard plastic splint on her leg, as well as breaking the steel support shank in two And she was only 7 months old . . .

Oh no! Not crate rest! Torture! I hope it's minor and she heals quickly.
I hear ya with the acting sound at the vets - Sammy could have one leg severed and wouldn't limp at the vets - I hate that -they make you look like you're a neurotic owner dragging them to the vets over nothing. silly dogs
