    Default Ruby in real pain??

    Hi all

    I will be calling the vet first thing anyway but Ruby is experiencing a lot of pain/discomfort in her back
    Noticed earlier as i tried towel drying her after our wet walk and she yelped out. I thought I had caught her neck so I got the hair dryer out instead.
    Then a few hours ago she walked up to me for a cuddle I stroked her gently down her back and she flinched and the back went down. Sign of pain I realise. I gave her some metacam and crated her for a nap to keep her still and rested.
    Let her out just now for a toilet break and she doesnt want to walk about really and Im not sure but im pretty sure there is a lump where the pain is locallised on the spine.
    It feels like there is a bump there and Im worried she has damaged her spine?
    We had a good walk earlier but nothing more strenuous than usual and Ive been with her all day and she hasnt all of a sudden cried out as if something has suddenly gone wrong?
    Any advice for a very worried Mummy?

    Good luck -- it does sound like something to do with a disk.

    Sounds like she has slipped disk. Good luck at the Vets it's nothing serious and he /she gives Ruby an injection for the pain. Sending to you both.

    Well she was able to walk about this morning so had a feeling it was unlikely to be disc/spine related.
    The vet thinks its muscle related -as all her muscles are twingeing/spasming when you touch her back and it feels hot to the touch which indicates that it is very inflammed- which would be good news so we have been sent home with more metacam and crate rest instructions.
    She looks depressed bless her but is able to walk and sit/lye back down with out being in pain.
    We will go back 1st thing monday morning and if no improvement will have an xray and maybe a scan if that shows nothing.
    Just glad she was able to come home rather than be stuck over night again
    Had to buy another crate as charlie has her old one but i got a big one so she doesnt feel to confined as she isnt used to being crated anymorexx

    I'm glad she is a bit more comfortable. I hope she improves over the weekend.
