One gets better, and the other gets hurt!

Pixel is over her UTI, her adult teeth are coming in and she obviously feels better all around.

Soooo... Just since I wasn't having ENOUGH fun at the vet's office...

We were working on directed jumping in our lesson yesterday, (one of the Utility exercises) and Kodi SLAMMED into the high jump. He rarely touches a jump, and I'm still not sure whether he twisted something on take-off which caused him to hit the jump, or whether he hurt himself hitting the jump. When he landed, he was 3 legged lame. The tendon that runs down the back of the front leg was as taut as a bow string. I let him walk it off for a couple of minutes, because sometimes, they can just "sting" themselves on the edge of the jump. He did get better, but not completely better. I put him back in his crate to rest, and we worked Pixel, then got him back out, and I just trotted him a bit. He was noticeably lame still, though not terrible.

Since he was continuing to improve, we decided to wait until today to see whether he needed to see the vet on an urgent care basis, or whether we would just take it easy until our scheduled appointment in 10 days. No dice. Today he is head-bobbing lame at the trot.

So, fortunately, I was able to get my vet's LAST appointment available before she leaves on vacation on Friday. Hopefully she can figure out how bad the injury is, and how best to approach treating it. Keep your fingers crossed for us that it's not the tendon, as that could put us out of business for the rest of the summer... which means the specialty. As it is, I suspect that we are going to have to withdraw from the NEROE Rally Tournament which is only 10 days away.

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that! I certainly hope that it turns out to be something minor, and that Kodi heals very quickly.

I am so sorry to hear about Kodi! I hope the vet says it something minor and a little crate rest will do the trick. Let us know what happens when you see the vet Friday.

So sorry to hear about Kodi and hope it isn't serious and he isn't in too much pain. I know how much he loves to "work". On the other hand, however, happy to hear that Pixel is on the mend. Hugs to Kodi and a speedy recovery.
