Just got back from a trip to the emergency vets. Last Saturday evening Holly started limping a little intermittently. We kept an eye on it, but by Sunday morning she seemed ok so we put it down to perhaps a sore paw or something. Been fine all week, going on walks as normal. Then last night she started limping again, but again not a constant limp - almost like she was walking and every now and again something pinched her so she would go into a scuttle and skip around. I had a feel of her and found a lump in between her abdomen and the hind leg that she had been limping on. This morning she was doing it even more and also licking her lips so obviously not happy so I took her into the vets. Vet reckons it's a torn muscle and that the lump is where the muscles have knotted and fluid has collected. She did have an accident a few weeks ago where she was running around on a walk, slipped on some mud and crashed into the corner of a wooden bridge (the corner of the bridge hit the hind leg that is now bothering her). It obviously hurt her and she spent a few minutes apologising to everyone as she always does when she hurts herself, but then carried on as normal so we thought she was OK. Vet has given her some anti-inflammatories and said to give her plenty of rest and only gentle exercise. Taking her back in on Wednesday to see how she is doing. 2017 is definitely not Holly's year!
