So we’ve had Callie for only a month and tonight she started limping.
We had a hard run this morning and she had a rambunctious dog park visit this evening. She didn’t limp during or after either and I even took her own a quick evening walk around the block and didn’t see any sign of limping but after laying in her dog bed later this night she got up and limped into the kitchen.
It’s her hind leg - she’ll put pressure on it but she won’t bend it and when I picked up the leg she didn’t react at all but kept it stiff/straight. She let me manipulate the other legs fine.
Sometimes when she’s sleeping weird for long periods of time she’ll be a little stiff when she first gets up but she usually stretches and works it out.
I’m thinking she just strained a muscle or something but I’m also panicking inside thinking she’s on death’s door. Mark is suggesting taking it easy tomorrow (no runs) and see if the limp persists.
Soooo - should I be freaking out? Tell me what to do!!!!!!!!!
