blueangele He thinks that Z got bit by fire ants (we do have tons right now) and was being a bit over dramatic. Z had been great all morning, only favoring the one paw slightly and only every few minutes. He had a slight fever and his paw was hot, but other than that no other signs, he palpated his legs/hips/feet and Z never flinched or acted like anything hurt. He did say almost every GSD he has seen in his practice has a tendency to over dramatize things, but fire ant bites hurt like heck, so I don't know if I can call it dramatizing LOL. I am going to keep an eye on him and not let him get too carried away for a few days, but hopefully that was it.

Michele Maxcy we had a chocolate lab that one morning she just couldn't get out of her crate. We of course panicked my son was little and very scared. Took her to the vet she had Lymes. Anti-biotoic cleared it up very quickly, she recovered fully.

blueangele He seems great this morning, he performed the 'shepherd spin' at the door to go outside, I am going to still call this morning and see if they want me to bring him in, I am sure they will, but I will feel like an igit if it was just a Charlie horse or something

blueangele I will mention it to my vet, I let him out to go potty and he made it down and then back up the stairs with no assistance, I was right there ready to help, the once he got inside 'trotted' into the bedroom, licked my son and laid back down. I didn't see any sign of even a limp. I am still going to take him in just to be safe and he won't get to be in our 'agility' club this weekend to be safe. I asked about what he did today and he was kept in the yard all day, had done nothing strenuous, so I will just have to wait and see. If it is just the rimadyl that is making him feel better I am sure I will notice in the morning

If they could only talk!!! Try not to be controlled by fear. Pray for the best!! I know for myself that fear can be so debilitating!!

Alena Gonzalez Could it possibly be a pinched nerve?? I can remember years ago my dog (not GSD) started screaming in the middle of the night and didn't want to move. I freaked out and took him to the vet the next morning. She basically said it sounded like inflammation and a pinch nerve. She gave me steroids for him for 5 days and it never happened again!!! I pray that's all it is!

katieliz the sudden onset and lack of clear cause (at such a young age), is worrisome. thinking of you and hoping for a quick diagnosis with good options for treatment. take care.

blueangele He kenneled himself so I went with it (he likes his kennel), but I opened the door and closed the bedroom door and we are hanging out in one room, when I feel the tears coming I step away from him. He is so active and so full of energy normally, I just can't process what exactly happened, he was laying down and then his legs were bad, literally nothing happened that should have caused it
