Light duties

Post by Jenc on Thu Sep 21 2017, 21:27

Katy developed a limp last week, not on our walk but after we got home! I checked all down her leg (rear left) no reaction, I got to her foot & she growled so I thought ok sore foot. She seemed fine the next day & was good on our walk but that evening after resting she couldn't put any weight on it Sad I checked again even her foot, no reaction. Fine again the following morning Surprised Good all weekend, then Monday we had a good run & she was limping again after resting, so knowing she was due for her vaccination I booked her in the vets on Wednesday. vets says her knee joint is slightly swollen & she must have twisted it the way staffies charge about Laughing Hubby had a quiet game that evening with her, everything fine she jumped on the sofa but when she got down she caught het leg in the throw!!Just had to be her sore leg Rolling Eyes Knowing her pain tolerance, Katy screamed Crying or Very sad What a horrible thing to hear, light duties again today only going out on lead. She is happily in frog leg style chewing her bone now but will limp when she gets up Rolling Eyes Obviously this will now be an ongoing problem, so the vet says so will be keeping a closer eye on my girl Love Struck

Sorry to hear that she has unsoundness issues but she's so gorgeous that keeping a closer eye on her shouldn't be too much of a burden at least Love Struck

It's certainly not a burden but having to lie to her when I have to walk her friends is horrible & I really miss her not running with us. Her health come 1st & foremost here Love Struck

Poor Katy, hopefully it won't be long before she is running about again.

I wonder if it is something catching between white and brindle staffies? I have one of those too. Not quite the same but intermittent lameness on his front right. It seems to be made worse by walks, blasting round the garden chasing bunnies and stoats, and digging rat holes. And not listening when mummy says 'don't, you'll hurt yourself again'.

Good luck keeping her quiet, or at least better luck than we're having!

Aww, poor Katylove.
It's so hard to stop them from rampaging about, especially when they get off lead in the park. If I get Gizzy warmed up a bit with walk-walking and a trott, I feel like he's less likely to damage his legs but it's so hard once he's spotted a squirrel...or a ball...or a glitzy-looking patch of grass...

I have been letting her run as quiet road walks still have her limping Surprised So I have been running & resting her as I don't want her putting on weight. She doesn't seem in any pain as I run my hand down her leg with no reaction, so I just need to keep a close eye on her.

She doesn't show any signs of a problem when out Liz, but after resting she will be limping for a while a bit like us when we stiffen up I suppose. I will keep a close eye on her & run her when she seems to be ok.

Is it worth doing some stretches when you get back from walks, Jen? I'm a huge believer in stretches, I know I benefit from them.

I will give that a go Liz, she seems to be improving, happier in her self but the limp still re appears after her walk Rolling Eyes
