A while back Buzz seemed to be getting very old, very fast. He was reluctant to get in the car, couldn't get up on my bed, and overall just seemed disinterested in going for walks. "People" told me he was acting old because he is old (11 is not THAT old). He'd never been xrayed because something else always seemed to come up that required my money. I scheduled hip and elbow xrays for the 11 year old "in hopes" of finding some arthritis in his hips or elbows. I didn't want to sedate him as he's so good and sedation scares me. My always good dog screamed bloody murder when the vet tried to stretch him out for the hip xray and he mouthed the tech pretty hard. THAT scared me. THAT was not my dog. I said "we need to see what's causing that" and so we did, with sedation! As the vet was reading his hip xrays he suddenly said "what the heck is that?!?" and points out two fractures in Buzz's pelvis! WHAT?! Somehow my dog fractured his pelvis in two places, MONTHS ago as it was already healing! So, listen to your dog. Buzz told me he wasn't feeling well and when chiropractic work didn't fix him, we delved deeper. Not what I was hoping to find, but the good news is that his xrays looked really good. We sent them in to OFA because my vet is not a professional xray reader, but he said he'd be happy to see those on a young dog. Buzz's joints shouldn't be causing him any problems after his pelvis heals. Thankfully it was set up really well and healing in line on it's own. We'll re-xray in a month and go from there. Right now he's on a lot of crate rest with limited activity. He was on complete crate rest but it drove us both bonkers. Tonight he got to work on tracking article indication (pick up and sit) and is now contentedly relaxing instead of attempting to pace. And here is a (bad) photo of him playing with his Tug A Jug he got because he's on the injured list.
