Poor Girl!

This morning when I woke up Kati and took her out to go potty, I noticed she was limping! She has been holding her back right leg up, not even letting it get close to the ground. When she was peeing, she was holing it up too and balancing herself on the other three legs! So G and I both got her to roll over so we could see if there was something happing on the outside of her that was bothersome. With nothing to be found in her paw and not a whimper or whine from her when we were feeling her foot knee and hip we both agreed that we would just supervise her for an hour or so to see if it was just something easy like sleeping on it funny. But at noon she was still limping so I called the vet. She is probably fine, but I always figure it is better to be safe! She has an appointment at 4:30 and I will try to post again soon to let you all know how she's doing and what they figure out is wrong (hopefully nothing or something very minor!).

Happy DOT to you all! Good thoughts for a world of healthy dogs!

Aw, give her some luving from us... hope all is okay and its just a minor sprain or something!

Good luck at the vet, hopefully it's just a little stubbed paw or something she'll recover from very quickly.

awww, what a sad DOT post! Poor pup...hopefully just a muscle strain. Mine did it last week, and would not put his front leg down. Gave him an anti-inflam, and wrapped him in a blankie, and thankfully he was fine the next day. Hope to hear good news.

Hope Kati will be just fine. It's so scary when our pups are hurt.
