Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

This JUST started today. She is 9 weeks old right now so I was up with her at 4:30 this morning to take her potty. She is always full of energy at that time of day and was jumping and hopping around as we walked out to her potty spot in the back yard. She came back in and against my wishes got up the 3 stairs to the kitchen where her water dish is. She didn't drink anything but walked around the island and came back to me. When I saw her she was limping and really trying to put as little weight as possible on her front right leg. I brought her downstairs to check out her foot/leg and she walked a bit and then seemed fine. At 6:30 she was up again for the day. This time after coming in she ran downstairs for some play time. By the time she was at the bottom she was limping and wimpering pretty badly. She would hardly put any pressure on her sore leg/foot. After about a ten minute cuddle session she seemed fine again. She is still walking good now (noon) but is a little less active. She wants to play but is slower and not as energetic as normal. She is still eating and drinking good. Saturday I had her out for a run and she fell at the bottom of a small grassy hill. On Sunday she was playing with my son, and a few kids, and had another tumble at the bottom of another small hill. I'm guessing this could be a small sprain/strain?? To help her rest her leg we are not letting her walk up or down stairs. Sad to see her wanting to play so much but she knows to rest and relax too. She is taking it easy on herself. I've read to ice the area as well. She doesn't feel swollen anywhere so is ice still a good idea? Any recommendations on how to keep ice on her leg? We tried calling the vet, but it is a holiday here and can only use the emergency number. Not sure this is an emergency type of situation. Thanks for any advice in this area

Not sure but would maybe those ice/cold pads work with maybe some medical tape? I realize the medical tape might pull on the fur when taking off but not too bad, and the vets use it, or something very similar to it. Good luck! Hope Akira feels better, she is adorable!

To me it sounds exactly like growing pains my gsd puppy did this a lot just try to not let her over do it like jumping or too much playing if you notice her limping let her stay in a confined area so she can sleep or maybe chew on a bone to keep her from playing. The whimpering is kinda odd though, id make sure theres nothing in between her toes or swollen ect.

Thanks everyone. She does magically seem fine so it may have just been growing pains. Smile
