Well we made it to the beach, pups did great on their 2 1/2 drive down. We did have trouble getting into the filthy house,as the cleaning service never showed, and the cable guy never showed - so tonight I finally got online.
Lily got here & seemed very happy. After about an hour or so, she started limping. Her back right leg seems to be having a problem. When you manipulate the leg, she seems to have NO discomfort, does not growl , and does not pull away. But she does limp, and at times will only walk on three legs. Today she seems to be limiting herself on the stairs as we have 3 floorsand she is staying on the kitchen, family room floor. We took her for a walk, she limped at first, then walked fine, then limped again when we got home, but not on the walk. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem might be? Or what we can do for her? I have tried to carry her tubby butt up the stairs to keep pressure off the leg, but we cannot figure out if she is just uncomfortable or really has a problem. We also checked the pads of her foot, thinking that maybe she got a thorn in her pad or something, but nothing!!
Any ideas?? Does anyone ever give their pups tylenol, advil or aspirin?? I plan on emailing my friend at the vets by tomorrow if she is still having problems, but figured with so many of you might have some insight.
