Thread: Brock's back on light duties :(

  1. #1

    Default Brock's back on light duties :(

    So we spent a couple of hours at the beach last night(as we do most days), we went for a longish walk along the bike path and then came back to the beach/park area and Brock played with a few dogs. He was definately warn out after playing with a spoodle at the end of the night but I saw no obvious times where he might have injured it and the dogs he was playing with were all undermatched for Brock, so I can't believe he got hurt just from playing. I can only assume that he has done a little damage during one of his crazy turns. There was absolutely no sign of injury while we were down there, and even after the car ride home, no limp. But late last night he came out holding his left back leg off the ground and unfortunately today is no better ... it's actually the worst i've ever seen him limp so i'm a little concerned that he might have done some real damage this time. There's no obvious looseness in his joints but he mouths at me when i touch his knee so it's obviously painfull. Arrrgg, why can't staffies know when they're hurt and stop lol

    He's still coming up to me, hopping along on 3 legs with a rope in his mouth giving his silly woof woof asking to play tug with those pleading eyes ... it's amazing how dumb a very smart dog can be lol

    Once the adrenalin settles down the pain kicks in. I know it all to well but usually with my own back not the dogs.

    My pup hurt her leg and every time it started to get better she would move the wrong way and hurt it again. I too was really worried that it was something really serious. But she did finally heal. Some of the things she used to do was slip on the tiles, jump in the air. The trouble is once they feel a bit better, they forget to be careful

    Thanks. I do have a crate but while he's at home he's generally pretty calm so I haven't bothered going there yet. We still have our beach time, the only difference is the past couple of days we just sit in the car and he gets to watch/smell whatever is going on beit seagulls or other dogs walking past ... I figure it's good for him to still get out of the house and check out some scenery.

    He is still limping today but it's improved so at this stage things are looking up and hopefully it just fixes itself. I'll give him a few days off, going fishing tomorrow anyway(the one thing I do that means he doesn't get his daily outing) and have a little roadtrip outing on wednesday to give him a different place to sniff around.

    Not many dogs have it better. I spent 2 hours in the pouring rain(in melbournes lovely 10 degrees) two days in a row at the beach the week before last so he had his fun time .... i've since invested in a ski jacket, neck warmer and water proof trousers lol

    Must say, Jack had just as good life and it was one of the things that made seeing him off at just 7 years of age that little bit easier .. he had a better life in 7 years than most dogs can ever hope for

    'mymatejack' - how is my special little Hunk going ?

    I was sorry to read that he had hurt himself - pups pffttt ! I hope he has been resting and looking after his poor sore leg/hip.

    Maybe see if you can find a good greyhound chiropractor to get him checked out ! Just a suggestion !

    He's coming good slowly thanks RileyJ, pretty much not limping at all now but i'll give him a few more days before we start doing any excercise again. It's getting hard now to keep him just moving slowly around the house as he obviously has lots of built up energy, so we've been playing lots of "find it" games to try and wear him out via his nose lol
