So tonight, and a little bit yesterday, Brooklyn has had a slight limp to her, but then it would disappear. Tonight, she was fine all day at the park, then we we got home she was limping a little again, but this time we could tell it was favoring her right front leg. Then, bless her heart, she walked right up to us and held her right front paw in the air as if to say "this is what hurts mama". So we laid her down and poked and prodded. No amount of touching or stretching seemed to get an uncomfortable reaction from her (she actually fell asleep!). And after a few hours, she woke up and got up to go outside for her goodnight potty break, she did limp, favored that front right paw clearly, then after about 5 min, was walking normal again and just walked right into her crate to go to sleep.
It is almost like a soft limp, not a sharp pain limp if that makes sense (like if your foot was asleep vs. broken) like a slight wobble/favoring in the front...barely...then goes away.
I am so confused?? And don't worry, I am of to the vet tomorrow morning, but just wanted to write on here in case someone has seen this before or has any questions for me to make sure to bring up to the vet. It is hard, because I know I will go in to the vet and Brooky will be so exited she won't limp and judging from my own "physical exam" she dosent have pain when you squeeze or touch.
Ugh, I feel like I am in the vet every week. Last week the nurses said that they think Brooky is their most regular customer! (last week was for a referral to a neurologist to get her SM type symptoms sorted). I am just trying to breathe, but I feel like my poor baby is jumping hurdle after hurdle. If it's not one thing, it is the next, and this limp has me wondering and filled with nerves about what now I just want her to be able to have some peace for a little while poor sweet thing. She is so adorable too, I mean what 9 month old dog walks up to you to show you what paw hurts?!
I'll let you know what the vet says, but any random thought if anyone has them would be great. Off to sleep now!
