    He collided with a large dog & is favoring his back right leg :( He screamed and ran over to me and is visibly limping when he walks but still wants to run & play (which we're not letting him do). I have a gut feeling that it's his iliopsoas (like elegy's Steve) but want to rule out cruciate, etc.

    We have an appointment with a highly recommended orthopedic vet tomorrow morning.

    Vibes that its nothing serious & a fast recovery?

    The vibes are appreciated!

    The horse vet that was there tried to put her hands on him right afterward and he almost bit her face off--not typical for him. He did let me touch him but I know very little. I though he was limping on his front leg at first...

    I just feel like a bad dog mom and will anxiously await our appointment.

    Nonsense!! It was an accident and you can't keep him from playing and having fun - what kind of life would that be? You're an excellent dog mom for taking him into a vet right away!

    ****vibes**** that it's nothing serious for the Crossbone dog. Mu came down funky from a jump once and squealed like she was broken forever - scared the hell out of me. It ended up that she had just popped her kneecap in and out, so she was on crate rest for a week or two but was totally fine. I hope it's something equally easy to fix!!

    Poor guy! Loads of vibes for him to chill until the vet appointment and that it's nothing a little crate rest won't fix.

    Well.

    Our morning appointment had to be rescheduled for this afternoon because they had a morning surgery. My work schedule forced me to reschedule for later in the afternoon. Then I ultimately had to cancel at the ortho vet and reschedule for Monday (which now I can't make).

    Took him to regular vet. We walked in and he started to not put weight on his front leg and cried when she palpated his back leg...

    I'm so upset & frustrated that I couldn't get him to the ortho vet today and instead we got no answers (we got the, "maybe he has an acute injury in the front & chronic in back?" answer) an anti-inflammatory.

    I guess we now wait until his appointment with the other vet next Thursday & keep him off of his leg(s) as much as possible.

    Ugh. That sucks. Hopefully the anti inflammatory helps some until Thursday. Did they xray to make sure there's no break?
