    Default how long do i wait, Lola is limping

    i think its her right shoulder as she hurries back to the left front paw while walking. its been a week since i first noticed. Lola still puts weight on it, and i don't know if its getting worse but not going away either. it might have started when we let play with a balloon in the living room. i try to pick her up onto the bed and couch but she almost always jumps before i can get her. i just want her to rest!!! so i can see if it goes away, but so far, not really resting. so how long do i wait until i take her in for an x ray. i really hate to have to put her under, but i see her favoring her one arm and i don't want her to be in pain. should i try to get a video tomorrow???

    Can you crate her, or gate her I. A room where she can not jump? Just for like three days?

    yes we can crate her, except my husband thinks its unfair to Lola (she was crate trained but earned free roam of the house) i'm home all weekend I'll try to keep her down.

    if you can rest her for the weekend and see has she is on Monday.... If still limping, I'd take her in for a check.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    Oh no! At our old townhouse, my bf, Stig and I would all sleep in the living room occasionally. We had a mattress on the floor. Maybe do something like that for the weekend so she won't jump on your bed?

    I agree with above comments, try and keep her crated somewhat, and quiet as best you can to see if she improves, and if she's not any better by Monday, take her to the vet to get it checked out. I hope it's nothing serious, and improves, and she feels better soon. Sending love, hugs and prayers to you and Lola. Please keep us posted on how she's doing. I'll check in later for updates.

    Aww. I would be sad too.

    Hopefully she'll sleep through the day.

    Hoping Lola is doing better. The crating is only temporary and will help since she really shouldn't be too active right now. I know it's hard though! Thinking of you guys and let us know how she's doing today when you get a chance.

    one day down, she only got in about 3 couch jumps on and off compared to about 50 on a normal day. she is limping just a bit but less time spent on it made it seem less aggravated. she slept on the couch a bit this evening...-uploadfromtaptalk1389494819464-jpg

    will take it easy tomorrow as well!! thanks for the good thoughts
