Whew! Well at last you caught it so soon, that's great! Unless her poo is runny, mucusy or black, I wouln't worry about it.
Give her a smooch from us!

Thank you...she sure was feeling good when she was getting the high dose but that would have been horrible if I didn't realize sooner. I'm already mad at myself for having her on it for 5 days.
And now I have to be sure to keep a leash on her when we're sitting in the yard. I never even thought she was capable of it in her shape right now, but she took off running when she heard something by the gate. She really is determined when she wants to get to something. I haven't really heard the clicking/popping sound when she walked today and yesterday, so hoping that's a good sign but I know she still has a long recovery.

Well, I hope that is a good sign, too!

She departed us unexpectedly January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.
She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

Hi Faith and pup! Sorry about the mobility issues. Yes this is not uncommon and would love to help you better but this topic is very old. Please start a new topic about your dog here so everyone can follow along better ok?
In your new post please tell us what his activity level has been like. Many dogs have a setback like this because it takes more time than folks realize to build up stamina and strength. Dogs tend to go all out and if they don't get the rest they need they do see some issues like this. Make sure he's resting and let your vet know tomorrow so they can know what's going on and maybe check him out.
See you in your new topic!
