Guest MzBanks Posted July 5, 2013 Share Posted July 5, 2013 Hi Everyone, After my last question here, re: inappropriate peeing when playing (on his bed) and reading everyone else's experiences, I chalked that up to just excited peeing. He's done it only once since, while playing in his 'sandbox'-got running around in full crazy dog and then he peed in the hole he was digging to lay in, then thought 'eww, now I don't want to now, can I come in?'... Goober. This morning, he (7 yo. retired racer in excellent health) got up to come outside for morning walkies, and didn't seem to be able to feel his right hind, put it down and then sort of waved it a bit, put it down, walked very oddly on it but walked nonetheless. We walked to the road, he stood on his right hind to lift the other one and pee, twice - no problem. Gait was still a bit NQR but no pain, not bothered by it. Still a bit off while I was making his breakfast, but came zooming out and sat for it as normal. When he was done I gave him a once over, nothing on his pads or feet, no pain or reaction at all when I squeezed both hind toes. It was still a bit 'off' when I left him to go for work but he got around just fine. I have never seen a dog sleep and get up with his leg asleep like sometimes happens to humans, could it be this? I also applied K9 Advantix II yesterday, on shoulders and at the base of his tail where he can't reach it, and now of course I'm paranoid because I hate that stuff, but I also hate trips to the EVet for Lyme and Anaplasmosis crises and the ticks have been disgusting this year. Any thoughts about what it could be? I'm not panicking (well, I guess I am or I wouldn't be here....), I can always call my vet tomorrow if it gets worse, just wondering what y'all think. Thanks!
