Last night at training the lil one was tied up to a post getting all worked up over the dogs training, she was fine for hours, in her usual spot, doing what she always does, then suddenly she flips over n I hear an excrutiating scream. I thought she was just pissed at being tangled in her leash... but she wasn't tangled! She was injured that was clear, n she bit the shit outta my hand trying to unleash her, hard lil bite, it's not even the cuts that hurt, its the sheer pressure of her lil mouth on my bones! Anyway she instantly calmed down when I picked her up under her armpits, man I was so scared! Everyone there was concerned about her n helped me isolate the problem n make sure she didn't have any obvious leg breaks. Her rear left leg can't bear any weight, but you can stretch it out n she'll be OK. I took her to the emergency vet for some overpriced x-rays, as you see below there's no breakage to be seen. I went home with a super sleepy numb lil girl and an NSAID. This morning I went to my regular vet to update him of the situation and get some further advice, they checked her out n concluded her hip is fine but it's in her knee and ankle area, he doesn't think it's a torn ACL thank god, because her joints are all firmly in place... but she does FREAK if you move her joints side to side, so maybe a torn muscle or something. She's not putting any weight on it, but she figured out how to hop a few steps to pee n poop -- if she doesn't have to pee poop or eat then she refuses to walk even on 3 legs, she looks so pathetic If she's not 30% better by Friday she's going back to the vet for close up xrays of her knee and ankle to see if there's maybe a fractured growth plate or something, but either way, nothing I can do but wait. This is so depressing, n it's Cujo's 2nd birthday today too, it's like she did it on purpose to take away from his attention, damn women :lol:! I'm at the point where I can't wait till it's the next day so I can give her another dose of pain killers. She's done some "toe touching" on the ground a few times I guess that's a good sign, I really hope it's nothing too serious, but everything indicates that it's a self-repairing kinda injury. She's so small n fragile too, not like a GSD who's a big boned tough lil ball of fluff at 16 weeks, she's tall n skinny n small n fragile with long legs and a mean bite, she was dragging bite suit pants around the field just 20 minutes before this happened too... literally, big heavy ray allen bite suit pants being dragged along the ground, n she'd go do leg bites on Orly when he walked by wearing the suit too.
