    Also she ate some grass this morning and didn't wee until about 5 this evening. She has pooped today. Don't know if any of that is relevant.

    does she have a temp? I'd take her to the vet to be safe. It could just be a tummy thing that lasts 24 hours or so (that has happened a few times with my dogs) but why take the chance and worry yourself to death.

    Hope she is okay!

    Yes I'd take her to the vet in the morning and have her sleep near you so you know if she gets worse in the night. Shivering doesn't sound good. Can you ring the vet for advice?

    Did you check her over Br*d to see if she migh have hurt herself on something? Maybe she pulled something?? Do you have any painkillers that you could give her until you can get to the vet?

    I hope it's just a pulled muscle or something Probably best to not let her jump up on anything tonight. Keep us posted yeah?

    Yeah, she may be fine by morning.The symptoms are very vague at the moment and unlikely you'd find a vet at this hour.Hope you get a peaceful night and let us know how she is by morning.

    Hope she's feeling better in the morning. Or that the vet can fix her quick. She's probably just overdone it a bit.
    And Dougal eats grass all the time. sometimes in the morning before his wee and sometimes on walks. I've long since stopped worrying about him eating grass because it seems to do him no harm whatsoever. He's as strong as an ox.

    My Truman is going through the exact same thing right now. He yelps when we pick him up and won't jump on the couch, bed, etc...and if he does jump up, he cries when he lands. He can jump down fine, run, etc. He's been to two different vets, one 2 weeks ago (they put him on Rimadyl which he is now off of) and another one on Friday, and he was finally x-rayed. They didn't see anything wrong with his back / neck, so he's now on Robaxin (anti-inflammatory) and he also starts Metacam tomorrow, once the Rimadyl is out of his system. The vet thinks it's a pinched nerve caused by inflammation. I'm guessing the dogs were playing a bit rough and he got hurt.

    He's also on STRICT cage rest, almost all day . I feel SO bad since he just loves to be with us at all times, but he can't heal if he's active. I also have him on Transfer Factor, MAX GXL, minerals and Antronex. I'm talking to my chinese doctor about another supplement I might order called Traumeel.

    I would have him x-rayed first, to make sure it's not a bone / disc injury. Don't let him jump though, and I found if I have to pick up T his back has to be parallel to the ground, and I hold him close to me, and pick him up / put him down very slowly...then he usually doesn't cry. Good luck, and keep us posted!

    Sorry she seems unwell. If you come to think she looks really worrying, then ring any branch of Anicare; there will be a mobile number to call 24 hours. They will tell you if she sounds like she needs to go in as an emergency.

    She is sleeping soundly at the minute and put her chest flat on the couch which took a while.
