Oisin's Aoire Yes , I will probably have him x rayed for ED. I hate the idea of general anesthesia for something like this :/

Any good links on ED? Or threads?

Blanketback I'm glad it was just a sore toe, and hopefully she's wrong about the elbows. I'd want an xray too, to confirm this, but I have no knowledge about when this should be done.

My yard is the worst thing ever! It's horrible compacted snow, with holes everywhere from the thaw last weekend, and then refrozen - it's a danger zone. I think I need some tulips in a vase, to remind me of what's coming

llombardo My yard is an ice rink right now. I do not like the dogs playing on it. Robyn tore her nail in half on the ice

my boy diesel if she feels the dog has elbow dysplasia it needs to be checked out now
by the time your dog notices it it will be too late
surgery might correct it now

Oisin's Aoire Tell me a about it! This winter has been a rough one for a lot of regions :/

Sore 4th toe , all is well as far as the injury gos. Non Steroidal anti inflammatory and he is much better today, hard to keep him quiet!

She did say he felt like he had some elbow dysplasia ? But that it may never bother him and not worth checking via x ray unless it does?

Blanketback I hope the vet doesn't find a big problem, and he just twisted something. Good luck this afternoon! I totally agree about "stupid ice" and I'm adding "bleeping snow" to it too, because my pup's wiped out and yelped a few times now when he looses his footing racing around. Thankfully he isn't limping! But it takes all the fun out of playing outside when you're worrying about traction. Stupid bleeping winter, why won't you just leave now?

Oisin's Aoire Thanks I have this vision of the vet telling me he has the dog version of a blown out Achilles and needs surgery Im sure it will be rest and maybe an anti inflammatory . I hate things like this , it can't be 4pm soon enough!

Well , on the upshot I'll get to weigh him on a real scale and see how much he weighs. Right now we got his weight by my husband picking him up and getting on the scale with him. I am guessing 78 to 82 pounds is about right . My husband gets a number between there on our digital but it fluctuates each try because everybody is moving around too much lol

Shade Ouch, hopefully it's nothing serious and he heals up quickly.

Wild Wolf I hear you about the ice... Hunter cut BOTH his carpal pads on ice this winter and it took two weeks of no exercise to get him healed up. No more than a month and it will all be melted away... that is my mantra.

Hope he feels better soon!

selzer Sorry, hope he feels better soon, I certainly hear you about keeping him quiet. I have a 13 month old that is driving me bananas right now.
