    Had to take our dog to the vet for routine shots today. She has been doing this thing where when we’re out playing, she’ll lift up her front right paw trying to take weight off of it. We thought it was a blister or something wrong with her paw (she licks them all the time). Turns out she’s got some elbow soreness :tebow:

    we’ve got her on some pain meds, but have to reduce her activity for a while, which she’s not going to enjoy. Really hoping we can get get feeling better with some good r&r and a little bit of medication. Not fun though

    Chewy does seem to be a great company. We randomly got a hand painted picture of one of our dogs one day, and they send birthday cards to each of them every year.

    Apologies for the sobbiness, post cry session in the car. I'd give anything for it to be full of Dierks' hair again.

I think we all understand what you are going through. it’s been over 2 years for me now and I now realize that I will never get over it. He was part of our family and I will always miss him.

    My Bernese puppy is 17 weeks, 37 pounds, and today she perfected the five star frog splash off of the furniture.

    Piper Duane is going through her first heat (vet recommended waiting to spay until after first heat since she is a big girl).

    She won’t leave my side. She won’t stop staring at me. She wants nothing to do with my wife and everything to do with me.

    The ultra affection Piper Duane’s showing as a result of the hormones totally offsets the downsides of changing bloody dog diapers. But she’s getting spayed ASAP now that it’s here.

    Layla has not been eating and started vomiting. She has reflux, so a day or two of this isn’t a huge deal if she gets off her eating schedule. After three days, we took her to the vet, and her pancreatic and liver lipase levels were really high. They thought it might be bad gastritis or maybe pancreatitis, and were treating it as such. The past two days, she had outright refused to eat. This afternoon, she had diarrhea that was almost all blood. They’ve now hospitalized her to run more tests and give her an IV. I’m pretty terrified.

    Darwin has never been a digger or a buryier (sp) but the second day in the new house the neighbor gave him a rawhide. He gnawed on it for about 30 minutes and then gave one of his “im the boss” growls when the bff got near it. That lost him his precious for the day.


    Gave it back to him the next day and no more growls but he now tries to hide it. Have found it 3 times buried in the boulders of the retaining wall, yesterday watched him gently cover it with pebbles in the neighbors desert scape. Was quite the process. I brought it back in last night and just woke up to wear his latest storage spot is. Hasn’t even been on the sofa in years, or so we thought. 6171021B-711D-4ADB-85AD-8DA7876FE2D7.jpeg

    Be careful with rawhide. From what I understand, it’s pretty dangerous to give them while unattended.

    Asked our vet and she said these are fine because they are soft and can break down in his stomach easily enough. He’s never had one before because of that concern though.

    It’s pancreatitis, not cancer. She finally ate this morning, so things seem to be pointing in the right direction. :respek: I appreciate all the kind words.

    Yes i know of several dogs who have been killed by rawhide, they choke on it or it can wrap around inside them, I will never give one to any dog no matter alone or not, too many better alternatives.

    Knew Sabo's hips were getting bad. Friday morning he could barely use his hind legs. He had an x-ray this morning and we found out he has chronic hip dysplasia. The vet said the surgery was $5k per hip in 2015 so I can only imagine what it is now. Obviously that's not going to be an option for a 10-year old dog either way.

    He is now on the following meds:
    - Phycox (joint support)
    - Gabapentin (for neuropathic pain)
    - Thyrotab (thyroid)
    - Propranolol (heart med)
    - Insulin (diabetes)
    - Previcox (pain med)
    - Doxycycline (antibiotic)

    It sucks watching dogs get old.

    Wife and her ex gfs dog - could have never in a million years been able to convince me to purchase the breed out the gate but she’s definitely my favorite of our dog sitting roster.

    Grey pitties are such gorgeous dogs.
    One of my favorite dogs to come through Pixel was a grey pittie, she'd been shot through the eye and had to have it removed but she was still the sweetest thing. She never made it to my house but if she had she might not have left.

    This one "Bella" was abandoned and later adopted by one of my gfs - it's the most relaxed dog ever. I'm not even sure I've ever heard her bark.

    Do we have any vets or vet techs on here?

    I took my dog to my brother's house two weekends ago and she played with his two small dogs and mostly ran around outside in the small backyard, including about 5 minutes (or less) of fetch.

    I noticed her limping a bit early last week and I chalked it up to the exercise as she is fairly out of shape and hadn't chased a ball outside much recently. But it's been 1.5+ weeks now and i think she's limping worse than ever. However, it only seems to be an issue after she gets up stiff from laying down for a while. I haven't noticed a change in her appetite (all she wants to do is eat), her joy/excitement/energy, and I haven't noticed her licking or tending to anything.

    My dog isn't young - she'll be 9 in December - but hasn't had any significant injuries and certainly wasn't limping 2 weeks ago. i know she might be developing hip/back issues given her breed and age but she has literally been fine up until 1.5 weeks ago. She does have fatty tumors on her shoulders and belly but it would seem very sudden if one of them was impacting her movement. Hell, we just had her annual check-in/vaccines with the vet last month and they didn't flag anything.

    i can't even reliably figure out which leg is limping! i've thought it's her front left leg for most of the last week but I've looked at tonight's videos and I'm not sure that's the case.

    This is her this evening after a nap:


    This is her later tonight after a longer nap (and this is the worst i had seen it, i think):


    And then this is her walking fine no more than five minutes later as I took her out for the night"


    Any vets or vet techs or even lab owners who would have a guess as to what's up? I'm still hoping its just some sort of muscle strain but i've emailed these videos to my vet after calling them this afternoon. I just hate this vet because they try and bleed me dry and wouldn't tell me anything until i probably have to pay $1k for an xray or something.

    I work at a vet, I can see if there's anything I can relay to you when I go in tomorrow. Limping like that could be a number of things. You'd probably want to to rule out fractures and ligament tears, but x-rays won't show you muscle damage, just more opacity near the affected area from soft tissue inflammation. Also, if your vet charges 1k for an X-ray, you need a new one man.

    Also also, they're not gonna tell you anything without an x-ray, because it would be pure speculation without diagnostics. Unless they were able to diagnose through sight and touch alone.

    Handcuffed I showed the video to my doctor buddy. Basically you'll need to restrict movement and activity for at least 2 weeks and schedule an x-ray. Maybe short walks if necessary, but try to keep pup from moving around as much as possible. It might be a joint related issue since those tend to stiffen up when not in use (if there's an injury or chronic condition), which is why the limp is more pronounced after sleeping or laying down. It could be a lot of things, so best to at least get an x-ray on the books. You can also try warm and cold compresses, but that would require locating the affected area, and it's hard to tell where the limp is originating from.
