Any advice....
Poor baby was playing with her soccer ball outside and now she is limping..
I will be crating her and walking her on a leash for the next few days to see if she gets any better.
Anything I can give her (that I can get) or do for her before I have to take her to the vet?? I am praying that she will be better!!
I have a heating pad that she is lying on right now.

Exactly what you are doing is best... keep her calm for at least three days and see how she does

Hoping it just a pulled muscle

I feel so bad seeing her limp.
Is there anything over the counter I can give her?

Is she walking on it? Or keeping paw off floor?
I always forget what you can give... I know Tylenol is a NO

Aspirin only! NO other brands as you never know what else is in them. Heat is good but always finish with 10 minute ice. Coconut oil mix with peppermint n frankincense if you have any.

She is limping on it.
Last time this happened she would not put her paw down when walking. She would hop.

Poor baby. Crate rest definitely and potty breaks on a leash. No playing, running, jumping, etc.

Hope she feels better soon!

I don’t have any peppermint or frankincense. Not sure where to get that locally. A health food store maybe??
I’ll do more heat and ice tomorrow morning..
Oh how I hope she just has a pulled muscle...

Also any thoughts on the CBD oil for this? How can I order?

Yes local health food stores has them oil. You can put frankincense straight without diluting. Peppermint needs to be diluted. I would simply use frankincense straight. Morning, afternoon n bedtime.

Here we can order throughout Canada but I don’t know how it works in the US if you need to be within the same state that’s legal [MENTION=16619]Cbrugs[/MENTION] should know. Also, [MENTION=15364]oscarmayer[/MENTION] started to give CBD to one of his dogs.

Tank
Don’t panic, it happens, last year Tank limped for 2 months after bad jump, and recovered. I wouldn’t give her anti inflammatory meds because all of them are quite heavy on their stomach. I would use turmeric, but as it poorly absorbs from powder, you need to cook golden paste.
1/2 cup - Turmeric powder (*make sure that the turmeric powder is organic and is loaded with curcumin!)
1 - 1 1/2 cups - Filtered water
1 1/2 teaspoons - Freshly ground black pepper (increases absorption)
1/4 cup - Organic, cold pressed coconut oil

Heat water in the pan and add turmeric. Stir it, it will get thick, then add pepper and oil. Cool it down, can be stored in the fridge. Dose is 1/4 teaspoon 2-3 times a day.
Heat pad is also good.

Thank you so much. I’ll be going to a health food store today for the oil and get the turmeric.

She is moving a lot better this morning!
Still limping but not nearly as bad as last night. And it turns out it’s her left leg that she seems to have hurt. It was hard to tell because she was limping last night this morning when we first got up she was holding her left leg up at first. But then did walk on it after a few steps.
My poor baby...
