Cassie came on (a dog same size as bloo) they love playing together, but cassie ran into bloo and he went gamboling over head first. Cassie went and we walked the other way. Bloo sat down holding his foot up winging.
It took us about half hour to walk home! we had to stop start rub his foot etc....
He is lying on the sofa now, he needs to rest, but he keeps wobbling and yelping, (high pitched and thats not like bloo) his back hip and legs and all weird when he walk it looks like hes marching, and his front ankle doesnt seem right either.
Mom said if he carries on whining and yelping we will take him to the vets tomorrow. Does anyone have anything i can do for him until vet opens tomorrow??? hes struggling to stand on it : ( Hope he hasnt broken anything or knocked his hip out. Bloo n Cassie love a good old romp aroud but he landed funny i think, now hes come out the worst for it!
THANKS sam xx
hopefully, it's just sprained. the younger they are, the more dramatic they'll be as pain like that is new. here's hoping bloo will be fine soon.
|I'd be taking him to a vet, today if possible. We've always had dogs that act like their walking on a strained or pulled leg, but never so bad that they helped out from pain. Will he let you feel around to feel anything obvious? If he won't then it should be looked at ASAP.|
|Charm had a serious blow when she was six months old. She and the boxer were running and playing chase. Charm didn't make the jump over a concrete divider. She hit her shoulder, rolled, walked two steps, cried out(yes, cried out) and fell over sideways in the yard. The short story is that is was a bad bruise and strain. But we did immobilize it with two frozen water bottles wrapped in a tee shirt. I keep these on hand now always. It worked like a splint, one on each side of her extended leg. For the chest and shoulder, we conformed a bag of frozen veges. On twenty minutes then off ten to prevent being too cold on the tissue. Our vet said that it was that thinking that minimized her injury. This happened on a Sunday also. We kept her quiet, iced and crated until the vet checked her on Monday. |
Good luck to Bloo, hope it's nothing serious. It's so frightening to see them hurt and in pain.
|Any news on Bloo? Hope he didn't break anything???? Crying and holding up his paw is a signal of a problem...Is he okay?|

Was about to suggest something very similar to this if you can't get to the vet right away. If the pain isn't subsiding, you should definitely have him looked at ASAP. An injury could lead to a lot of troubler later on if it doesn't properly heal, so be sure.
|How is Bloo???|
Bloo is okay now (i think) hes jumping around okay and being his normal biting self
Mom phoned vets earlier they advised only to take him for short walks and no runs.
Last night he was a bit down in the dumps and sad, but today hes really cheerewd up lots! He is limping a little on his front paw when he put too much pressure on it but apart from that nothing bad happened
|That's good news!!|
|Very good news! Glad he is on the mend!|
|It's stuff like this that makes us feel like REAL parents. Great to hear Bloo is back to being Bloo!|
|Great to hear!|
