    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 :p 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.

    bwahahahahaha.

    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:rolleyes: .

    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 :eek: And she was only 7 months old . . .

    Oh no! Not crate rest! :yikes: 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 :p
