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.

PostSubject: Snowflake is limping!   Sat Mar 03, 2012 3:44 pm

I have an appointment for the vet set up for Monday but I thought I might find some helpful advice here in the meantime. I had to board Snowflake for the first time Friday night. The kennel sent pictures of her playing with other dogs and she looked happy. According to the biz, she was fine Friday night. However, when they fed her today (Saturday morning) she had a limp. They could not explain what could have happened from the time they tucked her in to breakfast time. It does not appear to hurt nor are there any scratches or marks. She simply does not want or can't put wait on it. She is eating fine and tries to play still- just can't do as much.

Something similar happened before when she fell roughly on her hind quarters. She made a huge scene and was fine within 30 minutes, but this time she has been limping for hours. Thank you for your advice!

It's possible she just pulled something while playing and after sleeping and keeping still for the night, it stiffened and tightened up. I can't think of any other reason...Sad Hope it's nothing!

How old is Snowflake? If you there is no explanation....I would get her hips Xrayed. I'm probably over paranoid since my first dog had Hip Dysplasia BUT Dakota had the same scenario. When he was young he slid on my kitchen foor and fell backwards. He limped for a bit but then it went away so I didn't take him to the vet. Over the years, I can remember a time or two Dakota had a limp but again it never lasted so I just never put two and two together. I just thought he played to rough at times. It wasn't until he was diagnosed with HP that it clicked in my mind that it was all related. Also, Dakota taught me that dogs don't always show they are in pain. You think they are fine but if you really look at them and see that something seems off...then it's better to get it checked out. It could be nothing but better to find out for sure.

Snowflake is 6 months old now. It is her front right leg that is bothering her this time. She still does not seem to be in pain (she is a pretty big baby) but she has been sleeping deeply since she got back. Obviously she did NOT sleep at the kennel. Poor baby. Probably nervous. We'll see how she does when she wakes up and takes a few steps. Its probably a good idea to let her rest. I did wonder about her spraining it and it then stiffening up over night. She is somewhat of a maniac and doesn't let things like that slow her down when other dogs are to be played with.

That's good it's not her hips. Like I said, I'm pretty paranoid about that now. Hopefully it's nothing and she will be fine.
