Does anyone know much about this? I am at work and can't stay long on the computer, so searching is limited at this point.
Grace was taken to the vet yesterday. My husband was playing with her and she let out a yelp, he thought he stepped on her. Later tuesday evening she had yelped coming up the steps from outside when I potty'd her before bed, and yelped again when getting out of her doggy bed. Yesterday we got her into the vet. They are thinking right now possibly a muscle strain, and have her on medication and bed rest for 2-4 weeks. Worst case they said it may be a very very mild acl tear. They don't think its anything too serious at this point, and feel managing with strict bed rest will avoid any additional treatment.
I have been told by a friend of mine who has a boxer to start her on cosquin ds to prevent furthur issues.
Also--how the heck do I keep a high energy pit bull who usually bounces on the walls on bed rest for 2-4 weeks? She will drive herself (and me) crazy!
