    We had planned a long walk today as the weather was supposed to be perfect, a place that we both love but have only been to a few times because it's quite a distance away.
    Got up and Muddy can hardly put any weight on his back right leg :cryin:
    He's going to have to rest for the weekend and maybe go to the vet on Monday :(

    :( Hope he is feeling better soon. It's so frustrating when these things keep poping up, I swear Millie goes through stages where there is always something wrong.

    Hope the quiet weekend helps x x

    Oh what a shame, we have had ruby lame monday and tuesday stretching into wednesday, she has been on metacam from vets and is back to normal now, but they have said rest till they see her again tuesday. I did take her for a gentle stroll out to the grass by the house while rolo went with other half to the field, just to stop her crying and going stir crazy. I figured that was better than the damage she could do charging around the house.

    I have no experience of lame dogs so rushed straight to the vet, it is so hard isnt it to know when a couple of days will help and when you should seek help straight away, i have more idea with the kids than the dogs.

    It is one time when i can see the downside of owning two dogs! Really hope that Muddy is much better very quickly!

    Must be catching but least I know how Rupert did his. He went to run up the decking and Milo body slammed him, Rupert yelped and Milo carried on trying to have him. Rupert's limping when he gets up but trying to stay lying down.

    Hope Muddy has just pulled something and is better soon :)

    Thanks :)
    We had to call the vet tonight because he seemed in so much pain, but as the day has progressed it's become obvious that it's his foot because two toes are now swollen (phew).
    He's been given a double dose of Alfies' Metacam and seems to have settled.
    Hopefully, he will be better tomorrow and the metacam doesn't upset his tum.


    How's Rupert?

    Hope he is much better tomorrow, my girl was so lame and yet the metacam and time seem to have worked miracles.

    Hope Rupert is feeling better soon too!

    What a lot of lame dogs!

    Ahh that sounds a bit better if you can see what's causing it now. Hope he feels better soon.

    Think Rupert has just bruised himself he's in a huff with Milo like he's not talking to him :rolleyes: Milo has entered an irritating phase and wont leave Rupert alone, herding him a bit and starting to guard people a little. Rupert being so soft just takes it and feels a bit sorry for himself. Don't think Milo even really knows he's in the wrong as Rupert wont tell him off so I have to be the mediator :rolleyes::

    Hi guys
    Muds toe went down last night and he was walking on it better this morning, but it's swollen up again now :( however the foot is still flat on the floor and hardly any limp. Fingers crossed he won't need a vet visit tomorrow.
