Now Jasper is limping

So we are in LI for our 7 year anniversary (free stay due to the bugs this summer) and all of a sudden today Jasper started limping and now it is a full 3 legged hop. You may remember that 2 years ago same place he sprained his leg getting off the ferry. But this time we didn't see anything happen. No vet here could see him this weekend. But we have an appt. For Monday when we return. So in the mean time we are trying to keep him off it and i just gave him a baby asperin. He seems fine other than limping, he is not crying when we touch him. He's eating and is still playing just on three legs.

I love it here but we are beginning to think it is jinxed.

Missy, Jasper & Cash

Which leg is it? Did his patella slip maybe? Whatever it is, hope it's over soon.

I just thought maybe patella too! I hope he feels better soon. I can remember this happening last time. What a drag!

Arghh Missy! You need to teach your furkids to do this when they are at home and not on vacation! OR, better yet, just don't do this!
Seriously, hoping it is just a little bruise or something minor.

Vinny, Lulu, Gabby and Richie too!

Be yourself, everyone else is taken.

Sorry to hear this, Missy. Glad he doesn't appear to be in pain, though. Happy Anniversary!

Oh dear. I hope it's nothing more than a sore leg that will heal quickly. How frustrating that it has to happen on the weekend and while you are away from home.

I hope it is better before the vet appointment. Did you check his pads? That has always been Dora's issue if something bites her or she cut her pad once before.

Do you think he just wears himself out on vacation- walking more than normal, etc?
