This poor dog
Just got back from a trip to the Emerg vet, and $219 later (for a consult, and shot of metacam), we're home and still don't really know what's up.
I took him out for a pee about 2 hrs ago, he was fine, walking beside me on the leash. Out of nowhere he let out a yelp, then nothing, when we got in the door he started SCREAMING. I washed his foot, and had a look...nothing, felt up and down the leg, everything felt normal. In the car we went, and off to the vet. She could find nothing that she felt warranted doing xrays, he puts weight on it, and by the time we got there was just slightly limping, and whining slightly. No reaction to any manipulating that she did. So he got a shot of metacam, and if he isn't improved 90% in the morning I'm to take him to our vet for xrays.
We talked briefly about pano, but I got the feeling she didn't think that is it. Even after all my years as a tech pano isn't something I've got a ton of experience with, so I'm not sure whether I agree or not with her. Anyway, he's curled up on the couch sleeping now. Here's hoping he's better come morning, but if not he will get to go in and see his very favorite vet at our clinic.
