Chesty is having a problem with his back leg or hip and he decided to start limping at 9:45pm. Since he’s going to be boarding all week I felt he needed to be looked at tonight so we were in the doggy ER until midnight.
They’re not sure what the issue is but he’s not in any pain and the exam didn’t show any abnormalities so the treatment is to rest the leg. Leash walks only. With all the stairs and jumping he does here at home, it will actually be easier to limit his activities while boarding. If it’s not resolved when we get home, the first thing we’ll do when we get to FL will be to have him examined by a vet there.
The timing with us being gone and then having to jump in the car and drive to FL couldn’t be worse. I’m hoping it’s nothing serious and that it doesn’t get any worse over the next 10 days!
I’d show you the photo of Keith napping in the chair on the other side of the exam room but he told me very specifically NOT to put that photo on the blog.
