Abby on crate rest

Postby Emily » Wed May 04, 2005 4:20 pm

I don't know what she did, but somehow she hurt her right rear leg yesterday and won't put any weight on it. I've touched it, pulled it, poked it, felt it, everything and there has been no response from her. There is nothing I can see between her toes or pads or stuck in her pads.

I figured if it wasn't better by Friday with crate rest today and tomorrow, I'd have it checked out. I probably would have had it checked today if she complained about it, but she hasn't.

Weird. Is she one for "sympathy?"

Here's hoping Pretty Girl is all better soon!

Oh, poor Abby. I hope she feels better soon. Just something I learned from my ortho vet. The further up they hold the leg, the further down the leg the problem is.

Interesting...

She was still holding it up this morning. I felt all around it again last night, and her hamstring area feels a bit swollen and tender, but she shows no pain when I touch it. I'm thinking it is maybe a pulled hamstring or something, but I'm going to have her checked out tomorrow when I go into work.

I pulled a hamstring a few years back playing softball and boy it hurt like the dickens.
