Buddy Girl needs some good thoughts.

My old lady is slowing down a ton in the past year. She has an on/off tendonitis in her right shoulder and a chronic ligament tear (stable but arthritic) in her left hind.

Tonight she has come up acutely lame on her right hind. I have no idea why. She went out to potty, came inside no problem, then stood up suddenly and couldn't put weight on that leg. Given that she only has two good legs to start with, she can't walk very well right bow.

I've given her some tramadol but if she isn't better tomorrow, I'm going to have to cancel Obi's appointment for blood donation and take her in.

Shes been through SO much and she's my world. I hope it's just a strain. I don't know what i will do if she's blown both cruciates.

Thanks Leslie.

It's funny. She can't hardly walk but she's sitting on her bed trying to play with Obi so I think "maybe something popped back into place". Then she gets up and is still toe-touching. Nothing wrong with her spirit or attitude. If only her body would cooperate...

Leg is no better.
Knee is very swollen. Knocking her out to take an xray.

Its likely a torn ligament.
My worst nightmare since she has a chronically torn ligament in the other leg and a bum shoulder. How could she ever recover from surgery?

Poor girl. I don't suppose one of those braces would be a better option for her?

Awww poor girly, I hope she is feeling better. Getting old sucks! My old gal is sore with arthritis and limps from all corners.

Did you try a heating pad if she will lie on it? That often helps with the soreness.

Oh Buddy Girl! That's what we all think of your diagnosis.

I am so sorry Allison. I hope you can find some way to make her comfortable for a while.
