Mindy went lame!!

Yesterday evening my dh and I returned from dinner and Mindy seemed fine. About 15 minutes later she was hobbling on 3 legs-holding her left back leg up. She wasn't running or jumping when it happened- she didn't bark or shriek- she just wouldn't put any weight on it.We thought we would see how she was in the morning rather than take her to the emergency vet which I don't like. Last night she didn't move at all on the bed- she won't walk on it at all this morning. I can't see anything and she doesn't act like she's in pain when I palpate her leg. She's never had any problems with limping before. I'll take her to the vet this morning and see what they say.

Jocelyn, Mindy, Cocotini, and Candy

Oh Jocelyn, I am so sorry!! Poor Mindy. I sure hope it isnt anything major. Maybe she just has a little something stuck in her foot pad and it hurts to stand on it?
Please let us know how she makes out .

Sending good vibes.........

Perhaps something happened when you were out and the reaction didn't set in for a little while. I'll be praying for a simple solution for Mindy. Sending healing your way.

Waiting to hear too Jocelyn. Hoping it's something harmless.

I hope your little Mindy has nothing wrong. My girl does that when she doesn't want to play anymore and Yogi keeps grapping that leg. The first time I rushed her to the Vet, now I know it is nothing, first time it scared me.

Jocelyn, I hope mindy is fine. But be sure to ask the vet about tick borne? And treating with doxycycline. Thinking of your both this morning.
