    @pdolphin27 it wasn't too bad. A bit more than I was expecting but not enough to file a claim on her insurance. They said she would have been fine in a few days even if we wouldn't have brought her in but I didn't want to take that chance with the weekend coming up. She does have a pain med that we are supposed to give her the next few days though.

    I know what you mean and would've done the exact same. I did actually. Wish I had come on here earlier. Is the pain med rimadyl?

    Glad Harlea is ok. I noticed this also in Fergus and mentioned it to our vet he who told me it was growing pains I was told I would see it off and on but if it he continued to limp in the next few days and feels pain they would take xrays.

    Glad to hear its nothing serious. Chum had a bad limp last summer that lasted a few weeks and eventually went away. I give him a few phycox chondroitin chews every night with dinner that a lot of people swore by for hip and joint problems and havent had any issues since last summer..Glad to hear there wasnt anything wrong! Shell be up and around in no time!

    No worries my friend. Its all good. I believe it is rimadyl. 1/4 pill as needed. I am waiting to get my allergy shots and don't have meds in front of at the moment.

    Hi, so glad to be reading that Harlea is okay, and it wasn't anything serious. It's always better to be safe than sorry though. I hope she feels better soon, and gets back to her old self. Love and hugs for Harlea

    @Lisabear123 Will do.
    @pdolphin27 Harlea's pain med is 1/2 of a Tarmadol tablet as needed. Rimadyl is the other one she got and that is 1/4 tablet twice a day.

    Whew - glad to hear - when Truman was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia, we were PRAYING it was panoestetis...which is painful, but thankfully resolves on its own!

    thank you. If she doesn't look like she's limping tomorrow you don't have to give it to her. Only if you think she may be in pain. It can really knock these babies out.
