My poor old girl Tessa has had a bad afternoon. At about 530 she was sleeping neer me and all off a sudden she jumped up with a fright and was dripping wet in urine. She looked dazed (as u would) and I walked her outside but cos her feet were wet from the wee she slipped off the back step ( about 15cm ) she got up and made her way out to the grass had another wee and stood there I called her and she was limping with her front left leg ( like pushing it out in front without bending knee ) I carried her in and felt her leg no prickles no apparent injury or pain. I put her on her bed and kept an eye on her she was shaking a bit and holding that leg funny but just had a sleep. She got up a bit later and was pushing the leg along again kind of like a blind man with a cane but not putting weight on it. Then it was my tea time and she was as if nothing was wrong hovering under me catching scraps ect.
While I was washing up she started holding that leg up again like she was going to shake then lent in towards that side kind of like walking in circles. ( virtigo like)
I held her and she straightened up within a minute or two.
She does have grotty ears so I'm about to give them a clean and check for infection and at almost 17 years old she does have some mild arthritis at times
Does anyone have any ideas on what might be going on. I will take her to the vet tomorrow if not better and we have the emergency vet in the neighbourhood if it turns serious
At her age I don't want to run lost of intrusive tests and put her through anything unnecessary
At the moment she is just sleeping. Sorry it's so long.
