    I'm glad to see the 'update' emoticon has been used now...

    That sounds very sensible; I'd have waited on an xray too. I bet she will be fine. Glad she looks generally OK.

    I must ask my vets what they use for lepto.

    SO pleased it sounds like "just" a soft tissue injury - poor India, you take it easy for a few days baby and get Momma to wait on you!!

    Hope she will be ok Cathy - VB ((((hugs))) I think it's almost as stressful for us as them when they are ill


    There's a big article on the Lepto vaccines in this month's Dogs Today...well worth reading.

    aw cathy--i hope she improves fast. the fact that no localized source of it can be found is hopefully a good thing. Surely something more serious would have a spot you could find. I occasionally get some kind of pain or stiffness that's pretty bad but when i feel around to try to see where it's coming from, i can't, so this sounded familiar. In a while the pain goes away, but sometimes, mine has taken more than a few days, maybe over a week.

    Oh Cathy, I was unable to log on the weekend, poor India - give a hug from us and I hope she is feeling better.

    Cathy I am so sorry, I've only just seen this thread - useless or what?

    Hope India is resting well and not exerting herself at all? Poor little love, hope it's soon all healed up again. I wonder how she managed to do it? I know they do go a bit mad when they all run around together.

    Get well soon India XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    How is Geordie managing without his partner in crime to run around with?

    India has been resting up, and has no limp this morning. It has not been easy keeping her from jumping off the sofa, so we've been keeping her in the kitchen with baby gates unless we are all settled in the living room and can pick her up/down from the sofa. Then Geordie tried to play with her for a minute last night before I stopped him, and she squawked

    I couldn't give her the medicine from the vet, because they gave me the wrong measuring syringe, and it doesn't fit on the bottle. I discovered that on Saturday evening, after the vet had closed for the weekend. So I'm taking that in to the vet after work today.

    Geordie wants his playmate back and cannot understand why we won't let them play. When the dogs go outside, we let India go alone or with Chocolate. Then we let Geordie go alone or with Chocolate. He keeps looking back at the door, waiting for India to follow. I think Chocolate benefits from the one-on-one time with each of the others, since they were already closely bonded by the time she joined the family.

    Hi Cathy. Just wanted to check and see if India is all better? A couple weeks ago you said the limp was better after letting her rest a few days. Did you notice any more limping after she resumed playing and walking, etc.?
    My Cavalier Linus just started limping, and it also was his front right paw. We noticed it after taking him for a walk.
    Thanks!

    I was going to suggest a soft tissue injury, but then read your post vet reply. Joly had something similar, last summer. We had been to a country fair, where he was fine, but aftter a 2 hour journey home was limping.

    I could feel no tender spot, but the vet did , eventually, as it was well hidden. She suggested a few days rest with no running upand down stairs. Allso, she said that such injuries can take quite a long time to settle, as humns can find.
