While I've been watching Gator to make sure that his breathing is OK, I've totally missed what is going on with our Chessie, Mariah. She is normally an "in your face" type dog with boundless energy and 2 speeds...full speed ahead and full stop. Today she is lethargic, grumpy (she just snarled at Sammie), refuses to get up and just refused one of her favorite treats. DH is on his way home right now to help me get her into the van and to the vet. I just talked with the vet and they will be waiting for us when we get there.

Please send healing thoughts. I'm scared to death that I've missed something important with her health while I've been focusing on Gator and his problems.

Oh no!!!!

I'm sending all sorts of good and healthy vibes to Miss Mariah.
And I'm sending warm hugs to you, too. It's easy to miss things when your head is somewhere else -- don't beat yourself up over it; we've all been there.

I hope this is an easily remedied "whatever small thing it is" thing.

Sending positive thoughts your way in hopes that this is nothing serious. Dash once went from being his usual self to not eating not moving, showed no interest in anything so I got him in to the vets that day and told them I thought he was very sick. well he turned out to have a bad urinary tract infection and stones! He was possibly becoming septic as his fever was also very high...antibiotics wiped that infection out and they did have to do surgery to get the stones as being a male they did not want to risk him trying to pass them and them becoming stuck in a more delicate " male area" as that surgey is then quite nastey, I think with a female they will try to let them pass. He recovered very fast and was his old self with in days.

I hope your pup is on the mend real soon !

Default Whew - she's ok

It seems I did miss that her back right leg was swollen. Our vet thinks she injured it sometime in the last couple of days. We had some rain here and she may have slipped on the wet grass while chasing Sammie around. Being a typical Chessie, she just kept going and going until it was too swollen and painful to use at all.

With crate rest, NSAIDs and pain meds, she should be back to her "in your face" self in a week or two. For now - no walks and she only goes out in the yard on leash so mom can monitor her and make sure it has a chance to heal completely.

Thanks everyone for the healing thoughts! I do believe they help!

Terrific!!!!!!

Well, not that she hurt her leg, of course, but that it's just a little something-something that rest will cure.
