Well I hoped it was just a sore leg but it is even worse today. My girls left front leg must be hurt, she is limping and can not put any weight on it. :( I have an appointment to see the Vet tonight after work, wish me luck!

Well I had her to the Vet tonight and he checked her out pretty good. It looks like it is only a sprain or a sore on her one toe. :dancing_b

He did an x-ray of her entire leg and said everything looks good, no fractures or breaks.:cool2:

She is still limping and he said she probably will for a week or two. He prescribed 2 buffered aspirin per day to help her along. I dont know if there is anything I can do other than that and limit her activity for a week or so. (That is not going to be easy) :D

I am just glad nothing is broken!

Thanks for all the well wishes.

Well it has been a month and although she is doing much better she still has a problem with her left front. I dont think it is an injury persay but more like a stiff joint or arthritis. What happens is after she lays down to sleep or nap for any length of time, say 4 hours or so when she gets up she will limp for maybe 10-15 mins. After that she is fine and runs and plays as rough as the best of them, but sure enough the next time she sleeps and then wakes she will limp again.

I am not real sure what to check next as the X-Ray did not show anything and she doesnt look like she is in any pain at all. She will get up all excited and hop around on 3 legs without a care in the world.

I had a Doberman with Wobblers and I know what it is like to take care of a dog that cant walk properly and it is not fun at all.

I am concerned that this is some type of arthritis, cancer, or bone problem that is just showing signs of trouble. :( I am just not sure where to go next in the diagnosis of her problem, any advice?
