Unhappy Bailey can't walk..

Baileys owner called me today,telling me no use trying to get Bailey outside,she cannot walk:sad:
Apparently she has a very painful back-leg won't put it down and it's painful to the touch.
She was fine fridayI have my suspicions,but hope I am wrong..
She has not been to the bathroom at all and must be in pain from that too..I suggested I'd take her to the vet,but the owner has an appointment after work at 5;30.
Bailey needed a vet yesterday,she's in pain..
I don't know what I can do for her,I'll try to carry her in to the backyard..any suggestions???

May I ask why you have suspicions about the injury? Are these owners fairly rough with her?

Poor Bailey. :sad:

I'd just try keeping her as comfortable as possible right now. If she's in pain, chances are she's become consitpated too.

When our Bailey hurt her leg at the DP we just put warm towels on her that were right out of the dryer. Might be worth a shot to keep her comfortable.

Poor thing!

Bailey,that's a good idea,I'll try that...as for the suspicion,I can't say..maybe it was an accident,maybe she was just shoved out of the way...
I don't think they abuse her,the mom loves her.
I'll go over right now and check on her..

Chico, I'm sorry to hear about Bailey :sad: ....we all know how much you care about her.

Warm towels are a good idea or even a heating pad set on low or one of those popcorn or rice filled bags that you heat in the microwave will help if she will let you do that.

Also, you can give her MSM if you have any.

If you have some traumeel on hand you could give her one tablet right away. Traumeel is a holistic anti-inflammatory, pain med - works wonders for any trauma - humans or animals!

Poor little thing - I'll be praying for her!

Well,she's better than the owner described,she had peed in her bed so I changed that,then she came outside in the back for me and she pooped a whole lot
She runs on all 4 at times but mostly her leg is up,I touched her carefully and she did not yelp.
I think she'll be ok,I'll see what her vet says tonight
I gave her a handful of treats and kissed her bye,she seemed happy,what a relief

Glad she's not too bad...but I wouldn't try to give her ANY medication, herbal or otherwise, until she's been seen by the vet...if she needs Rx meds for any reason there could be contraindications (I learned this the hard way when I gave Jaida asprin for pain...it turned out to be not strong enough to help her but it prevented me from being able to give her other Rx pain meds, had to wait a week until it was out of her system.)

Glad to hear Bailey is doing better ....hopefull she just pulled a muscle and it's not a torn ligament.

Re the MSM ....it is not a medicine, drug, chemical or herb. It's part of the sulpher family and is available in supplement form to help relieve pain and inflammation. It also occurs naturally in the foods we eat but disappears when we process our food.

chico, would it be possible that she has a "knot" in her fur? She is a cocker right? and I know my inlaws cocker use to get stubborn tangles on the inside of her back leg and would cry out and try not to walk on her leg till I'd cut it off.

Hopefully the vet will give her a clean bill of health. Maybe she just had a cramp and pulled something.

Since she is not my dog,I would not give her any kind of meds,I am hoping it's just a sprain or something.
When I talked to the owner,she described it as something much worse and I worried:sad:

Melinda,no she has no knots,her fur has been clipped recently
We'll see what's wrong,the mom takes her to the vet at 5:30,hopefully she'll call and let me know.
A-G,I wish so too,but the kids are teenagers,no time for a pup and the father is not an animal-person,the mom is great,but works long hours.

I agree. It's pretty common in dogs to pull or sprain things. As long as there isn't any swelling and she (soon) starts to put a bit of pressure on it, she should be okay. The vet will be able to determine more.

Keep us posted Chico!!

hey Chico2 almost sounds like when qman hurt his leg..if she was putting some weight on it, it's probably just a sprain or pull and will take a little time to heal itself. I found with q if we gave him a little massage before walking him it helped alot.

The mom called me from work,the vet bent Baileys knee and there was a clicking soundand it could just be age,Bailey is at the most 8 yrs old.
Anyway,the mom was really worried and said Bailey should not walk too much.
She's going back to the vet in 10days.
I'll see how she is today,maybe we'll just stay in her backyard so she can do her stuff.
Hopefully she's better,she loves her walks,stops to sniff every 2 minutes

When Chase had clicking sounds in his knee (first one and then the other) it was because the meniscus had slipped. You could hear the clicking when he walked. I hope this isn't the case with Bailey.

When I came in,she jumped out of her bed,full of beans,I took her for a short walk and she was fine,no limping
I hope it's not a meniscus problem,I think that's what the vet was concerned about,I had just forgotten the word.
For now she's ok,so we'll see if it comes back.
