Poor Bogie doesn't seem to get a break. Two rock surgeries, one ACL surgery and now this!! :(

He started slightly limping on his right front leg on Saturday, Sunday holding paw up and limping worse. Really hobbling on Monday and even looked like he was having trouble on the right rear. We called vet and couldn't get him in until yesterday morning.

After throughly checking all legs, joints, etc. he would only show signs of pain when she squeezed his right elbow which was slightly swollen. X-rays were taken and good news, no bone chips or broken bones. Bad news he has somehow pulled the tendons and ligaments, so he's on crate rest and dermamaxx. As for the rear leg she couldn't find anything wrong and she thinks he was walking funny on it to compensate for hobbling on the front. So we are to watch him and see how he does.

Hopefully he will improve quickly. So no stairs, walk to potty, and confinement are in his future for the next week.

Poor Bogie! That boy must love the Vet. Him & Rusty really do have to meet someday. As you know, we are doing the yeast meds now. Slinging tons of healing drool to Mr. Bogart for a super fast recovery!

Bogie Carter is doing much better now. Today is the first day he hasn't limped at all, but boy does he want to rip and romp again. He's out of jail (Crate/x-pen), but we are keeping him leashed when we can't watch him, so he doesn't overdo for the next week. Really funny how he doesn't try to romp and rip as long as the leash is on. He just slowly walks and drags it along, giving us dirty looks. We'll start doing very short walks soon and see how he does. Thanks for all the good thoughts and healing drool.

I'm glad to hear that he's doing better. I know it's hard to keep him from running around.
