Aw . . . poor puppy!
What the heck happened? I palpated the leg she was holding up but got no reaction. I called the Vet and they suggested a 'wait & see' approach. Perhaps it would clear itself.
I went to the pool and returned in an hour and she was still limping. I called the Vet and set up an appointment at 3 o'clock.
The Vet diagnosed her with a torn ligament in the knee. He calls it a sports injury. She's 12 years old. How sporty can she be? Anyway, she got a steroid injection and a laser treatment.
The prognosis is: the knee will gradually improve and should be healed within 3 weeks. Aw . . . poor puppy!
