Elsie Has A Limp And It's Nothing Serious....


Recommended Posts

RIGHT?

 

May 27th

 

On Monday, Elsie was limping. I gave her metacam in her food and no walks for a day and a half and she was fine again. We walked her once yesterday morning and last night her gait was off so no walk and today she is limping and holding up her front right.

 

Big sigh.

 

I am going to bring her in for an x-ray tonight.

 

I am having a sense of deja vu that does not feel very good.

 

She is otherwise looking and acting ok. I gave her a dose of metacam in her food this morning so hopefully by the time we come home, she will be better but I will still bring her in.

 

I'm scared.

Absolutely, positively RIGHT! We have hit our maximum number of serious limps for the year, so clearly your girl is FINE.

Right! I am right there with you, with my Frankie... His is intermittent and I am going to get him looked at (probably xrays) this week. Thinking good "nothing serious" thoughts for both of them! :wub::grouphug

You are absolutely, 100% correct. How is she today?

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

We did not walk her at all today. She woke up and was walking so much better. But it really had me thinking... not the best of thoughts. She is 11 and although she acts like she is 2... she is 11.

 

But as of now, she is looking and acting greyt. Walking well. If all OK tomorrow, walkies will resume. Well, maybe one walkie.

That's probably exactly WHY she had a limp! She's such an energetic puppy and feeling/looking fabulous for her age. :colgate She probably put her foot down wrong or sprained it slightly. Glad she seems better today.

 

Please keep us posted, ok? :)

So glad she seems better today, see what can happen when all the thoughts are POSITIVE. Elsie, please don't scare your Mommy that way, she worries so much about her babies.
