I'm afraid the Grinch has been here. I think he's taken up residence here.
About three weeks ago Samba started showing pain in her back foot. Dr B examined it and thinks it may be a tendon injury. She's on rest.
Two weeks ago Bailey started limping. I gave her something for it and after about four days the limp went away.
Then yesterday morning when I called Tsar to get up for breakfast, he screamed in pain. I checked him over and couldn't see what was wrong, so I gave him his arthritis meds and watched him. He stood and sat hunched up and tried to avoid lying down. If he did lie down, he'd scream in pain when he tried to stand up again. I gave him some pain medication at bedtime.
I've tried to be a good girl all year, so why has the Grinch moved into our house this Christmas? Four of my ten dogs are currently on rest and meds for leg and back injuries. This is not what I wanted for Christmas.
