Freddie is hurt!

Little Fred was playing with Scudder and I think he tripped down the doggy steps off the bed. He cried and cried. It was so sad. He would not move all night and slept cuddled in to me. This morning I carried him out to go potty and he fell over. He hurt his back leg and is holding it up now. He will not walk, he just stands there holding it up or lies down. I will take him to the vet today. I hope he didn't break it. He has sprained it before, but in those case he was fine the next day. This time seems to be different. He whimpers if any weight is on his back leg. Poor little guy. I am going to my sisters for Thanksgiving and I guess he will just have to come!
Here he is all pitiful holding his back leg up. Look at those sad eyes.

Oh, I am SOOO sorry, Linda! My friend is going through the same thing, but the dog needs surgery and a pin put in the leg! She was/is a wreck, so I can imagine how scary that is!

I really hope nothing is seriously hurt/pulled/torn or broken!

Kara and Gucci=sends her sloppy doggy kisses!

Your poor baby, I'm so sorry he's hurt. Do you have an orthopedist in your area? If so go there first. I wasted $360.00 with my regular vet, the surgeon charges like a regular vet and wanted to do his own exam. Read my strand Hip X rays and see that I just took my dog home with a similar injury. He hurt his ACL on his rear right leg and had to have it surgically repaired. Good luck and please let us know how it turns out, we can support each other.

Oh how scary Linda, I hope it is nothing serious and just a bad sprain. Keep us updated on what the vet says and give Freddie extra hugs and kisses from us.

Ohhh Linda, I hope it is just a bad sprain. Cash had one a while back. Hopefully your vet will give you some anti-inflamitaries and he will get well soon. Poor freddie, but I bet he gets some turkey!!!

Oh, Linda I'm so sorry to hear about dear little Freddie. I hope you find out it's nothing extremely serious. I know in humans it's often better to have a broken bone than a bad sprain, since it will heal faster. I'm not hoping it's a break, just that whatever it is heals quickly and he can get back to RLH very soon.

Tell him Tori sends get-well lickies and I'll keep you both in my prayers.
