Tania injured her right front leg about 2 .5 weeks ago.. EVet visit -- exrays, leg was stitched and then wrapped in a sling.  She was not able to use the leg.<BR><BR>Bandages came off on5/23... She was limping most of the tiem, but usign the leg. (Stitches still in at this time)<BR><BR>Stitches came out on 5/27.   She's still limping but uses the leg somewhat..   She doesn't object or show any signs of distress when we do range of motion or massage her shoulder abouve the site.  There is still a scab at the drain site.<BR><BR>So, should we expect the limp  (mind you , she gets extra attention fro the daddieman when she limps)  or is Tania a drama queen.<BR><BR>Any thoughts?

recheck appt scheduled for Friday...(This thing called work prevents me from getting her in sooner.)

 

Any other ideas?

If she's not running a fever, the sight isn't still draining, no redness or swelling, the leg doesn't feel warm to the touch, I would wait until Friday, it's only 2 days.

sometimes, although usually with longer duration recoveries, they get used to not using the injured limb. then when it's healed they just don't use it. maybe it's remembering when it hurt or maybe it's just habit. once you have the all clear from the vet Friday, you might sling the OTHER leg, forcing her to use the healed one, proving to her that it's healed and safe and there for her enjoyment
