    Default Fletcher is limping!

    So last night we noticed Fletcher was limping...left front leg. He'll let you handle it, I checked his nails, foot etc. nothing. He is not acting himself either. He will walk and he has jumped on and off the sofa a few times, but you can just tell he doesn't really want to. He's got a vet appointment at 2:30. I guess I will update ya'll after....Why do I see xrays in my future???? Ah poor baby!

    Poor fletcher! I hope it's nothing too serious, perhaps he jumped on it heavily and sprained it or something. Let us know how his visit to the vets goes. Fingers crossed

    Well, my sweet little man is home resting comfortable now. I love my vet she is so so so nice. Turns out Fletcher has a tissue shoulder issue (injury we suspect). My vet to quick to figure out it was his left shoulder, but we did do xrays just in case. So he's on crate rest, anti-inflammatory and pain meds. She wants me to call her back by Friday to let her know how he is.

    Man, I was worried about that one. She did say and I know from my own experience that sometimes shoulders take a long time to heal. We'll just go with it and see.....
