Injured reserve list

Posted: April 9, 2013 in injury

I’m sorry to report that Jagger’s had a minor injury of some sort. Over the last two weeks, he has at various times come up hopping on three legs briefly (one hind or another in the air) after sprinting. He looks sound within minutes, seems back to normal after a few days of rest and gradually increasing activity, but as soon as he sprints the injury is back. We’re taking it easy for a couple of weeks while we try to figure out what’s going on. It was disappointing that I had to pull him from both this round of online Agility Foundations Class as well as an upcoming local seminar on running contacts. But, better to be careful now than risk a more serious injury.

Jagger awaits his vet exam

I can has lollipop if I am good for vet-lady?

    Hi, if your dog is still limping, you might have the vet test him for anaplasmosis. It is a tick born illness very similar to Lyme Disease. Needs a separate test though.
