Lily is limping

I noticed last night after grooming Lily that she is limping. It looks like it is one of her front legs, but I cannot tell which one. I thouht maybe I had cut a pad or a quick, but her paws appear to be fine upon manipulation. DH says he noticed a little limp from her yesterday am, but since it was raining I did not have her outside much. By last night she was limping REAL bad, but seems better and is only slightly limping this am. So that tells me that is mostly likely is muscular and will try to limit her activity today. Any suggestions??

I think you are right, limiting her activity today..She might of just turned it the wrong way...I'd give her a day of just resting and see if it gets better.

I just paid over $200 to find out Axl, had just hurt her leg while playing fetch. But she is all better now.

Peace, Love & Havanese

Poor Lilly. I know freddie was limping once when he slipped on my tile and his patella poppedk out. Once his ligaments got stronger, it stopped. Maybe she injured an elbow? Maybe worth a visit to the vet. Keep me posted.

My little Buff was limping for a few days. We took her to the vet and they said she just strained herself jumping on something. If it doesn't get better in a few days, take her to a vet to ease your mind. If it's already getting better it's probably something similar

Poor Lily Bean, hope it's just a little muscle strain. If it persists let the vet take a look, but it sounds like she is starting to feel better already. Keep us posted.

I think I have sympathy pains for Lilly today! I cannot walk today (weird pain in my rt. let above my ankle ) Poor Lilly Maybe she strained herself playing somehow? I doubt you cut her, you would've seen the blook on her light fur. They just get hurt sometimes. One time Gucci underestimated a jump and nailed herself right in the chest, I know she was hurting for a few days. If she's not better by Monday, or seems to get worse, I'd take her in for an xray/exam.

Yeah, much to hubbys chagrin, I told him that she must be gated somwhere in the house today so they dont do the RLH game on and off the furniture. And I am making him carry her up and down the stairs too - Hopefully that will give her time to heal. If not, off to the vet we go!! Here I was saving $ on grooming - to pay the vet!!

Laurie, can your vet give you some Anti-inflametory--- might slow her down a bit too. Was it Lily that was on anti-inflametory when you were on vacation this summer?

good luck-keep us posted (maybe she is just taking on your pain since you are now feeling better yeah laurie, poor lily )

So true - oh my gosh I would never wish my episodes on my poor puppies. No she was not on them before, just calming drugs for the drive to vacation. That might be an option, I guess I will see how she is when I get home from work today. I love days like this, rainy, I put the fire on, and she curls up on her elevated bed in front of the fire. So hopefully we will have a quiet afternoon and evening tonight and she will heal. Thanks guys!!

Laurie, they did give Miss Axl a anti-inflamatory shot, and she was walking on her leg again the next day..

OHH, a fire that sounds nice..we have had over 8 inches of rain in the last 3 days, and it's cold..I think I will go spend the day with Lily..I can sit with her by the fire and read her a good dog book..

Peace, Love & Havanese
