My Baby's Hurt!

Neko's appeared fine all day but I noticed about 2 hours ago when I was walking them all to the car she appeared twisted. She was crying a bit too and it wasn't her normal excited because we're going for a walk voice. When I picked her up to put her in the car she whimpered. She was willing to run at the park until I stopped her but since we've come home she's just been laying down.

You can clearly see how she's twisted. She ducked away from my touch in the places I've marked. I dont think it's an emergency vet job but I'm wondering who I should take her to if she's still sore tomorrow, a vet or chiro. My poor baby!

Poor girl! :(

I'd be taking her to a vet first before taking to a chiro-better to first find out what you are dealing with.. They may need to do xrays which would also help the chiro if something is out of alignment.

I'd go a chiro/muscle man first.

I'm wondering if Des Fegan would see her. He's a qualified vet who then qualified as a chiro (I think) who works on racing greyhounds. He did see my racing whippets but doesn't want to see pets. I might try to get an appt. with him if she's still sore tomorrow.

You could also try ray ferguson at no ash vets - he breeds racing greys and does trigger point therapy.

Just tell him she's a greyhound who is a training companion for your racing whippets, surely it's not necessary to specify that she's an ITALIAN greyhound :p

"Oh I'm sorry, I thought you heard me say IG, well now that we are here anyway..." LOL

I remember a vet said to me once that it is instinctual for dogs to hide how much pain they are in and that it's a survival mechanism. If she is crying then she must be in alot of pain the poor thing. Vet and chiro? I hope she feels better soon.

Could be anything - my dog has those same symptoms when he has eaten something that is giving him a stomach ache or is constipated. Hope it is nothing bad and she is okay

And the diagnostic prize goes to.......................Pie!

All was cured after she took a big Poo! She wont win any bravery medals that's for sure but I'm very relieved, I suppose I can honestly say, we both are. :laugh:

Ah that's good!! Yep cost me an expensive specialist vet visit once after the referring vet thought he had a spinal injury - now I feed him some oil and give him a few hours to see if it makes him come good- always does haha

Amazing how sooky they can get
