Cooper has pulled up lame today - thought he was heading that way yesterday especially in the evening when he just wasn't himself.
His left front paw massively sensative and he's even nervous of putting it on the deck when he's laying down.
Whisked him to the vet at midday today and he was VERY anti her going near that paw.... very, very, very distressed so she couldn't do a full examination. I managed to look, but not touch, a while ago while he snored the house down. No signs of a cut, obviously couldn't see right into the centre or between pads but he's not licking at it much at all.
I'm praying it's a sprain or something simple but since the vet twisted pulled and prodded he's noticeably worse, doesn't want to walk on it at all whereas this morning he would but sheepishly. Please God it's not histroy repeating as his big Sis Judy was diagnosed with ED about 4 years old.
He is a big old wuss so hoping he's making more of it than he should. It's so heart breaking to see a 2 and half year old lunatic so down and in pain; I'd swap places with him in a heartbeat if I could.
Hoping some good rest and 29ml of Metacam over next few days get's us our old Cooper back
FINGERS AND PAWS CROSSED ALL!
