Default Madi is limping...off and on

so we're at my in-laws for the weekend. i went to bed early last night because my stomach was hurting, and when tim brought madi to bed a couple hours later, he said she had slid off the coffee table (why she was on there/?!?!? NO IDEA ) and it seemed like she was limping. Her back left leg seems to be sore this morning - she limps on and off - but will also run and play and stand on her hind legs to try and see what we were cooking for breakfast.

She's not wimpering and will put pressure on it, but then sometimes picks it up. Do you think it's okay to wait until we get home and can call our regular vet? If it gets any worse, I would obviously find a clinic here, but if she seems to be fine 90% of the time...? I'm guessing it's just sprained or bruised. There is no physical deformity that i can see - no broken nails or anything in the pads of her feet. Just every now and then it seems to bother her...

...thoughts?!?!?

I agree with you and would guess she just bruised it or strained a muscle. If she's not in obvious pain, it's probably fine to wait until you are back home and can see your regular vet. I'd keep her as quiet as possible though so she doesn't injure it more, no running, jumping, etc. Cage rest if you can.

thanks, tracy. you know how these puppies worry us! Luckily when we're not at home, she seems content to just hang out and cuddle most of the time!

I just hope she recovers quickly - the weather is FINALLY nice and I know she'd like to be outside as much as we'd like her to be outside!

Oh yes... I definitely know how it feels when something is wrong!! My guess is she's just fine, maybe a sprain. Hugs to little Madi from us.

Rico had an injury like that..I am not even sure how he did it..he likes to push things sometimes and runs and jumps...you know the routine. Anyway, I took him to the vet because he would intermitently lift up one of his hind lieg when walking. Just on and off one day, he'd seem better them again. In the end he had a bit of baby asprin and rest as the vet though the had pulled a muscle. He was fine in a few days.

It happens--they do more than they think they can. Possibly Maddi thought she could leap off the coffe table no bother..Try not to worry too much.
