    yeesh. does he have any pain behaviours when you manipulate it, like pulling away? if he does then maybe it's something more than muscle...hoping for his quick recovery

    I too would wait a few days and keep him limited on it if you can if he doesn't appear to be in pain. Wilson has done this, and my other dog Ace had done this before where they did something and wouldn't put pressure or limited weight on their leg and then in a couple of days they were just fine (like a sprain). When Ace would do it it was usually from running. I would massage his leg and that seemed to really help, sometimes almost instantly. I hope Cutty is feeling better real fast!

    I tried replying last night but lost it somehow. Not sure how he is today yet but he seemed maybe a tiny bit better last night? Hard to tell but it looked like he was trying to use his leg a little. Will see how he is when he wakes up. Fingers crossed he is better. Am terrified he tore his acl or something like that. When I move his leg he doesn't pull. Sometimes growls but he growled for daddy in a different place so we didn't Learn much. Lol

    Well he is still limping pretty bad BUT he is now using his leg and not just carrying it with him so it must be getting better. He has mastered how to get around just fie with the 3 good legs. I just hope he doesnt pull something with all the compensating he is doing now. He is 6 and now these things worry me more than they did before. Thankfully tho I do think it will heal up.

    I too keep a supply of Rimadyl on hand. I usually try to give it a few days of rest in the crate plus the meds and normally it is nothing serious.
    If he's not better after a few days I would probably take him in. Hugs to Cutty for a speedy recovery.

    Thank you! He has no crate which sucks. Miila has one and I thought to use it for Cutty but he would think he was being punished and that is a sad thought so no go on that. He is keeping mellow mostly and since I am home with him almost all the time I do keep him close. I have anti inflammatory for him, should I try it? Might help a little but then maybe he will do more damage cuz he will feel better?

    Late to this post so sorry he hurt his leg, but sounds like it is getting a little better. I would just see what happens in the next few days as long as it keeps improving. Hugs from all the gang.
