My Honey was Limping

Honey in Car

Had to take my bigger dog Honey to the vet this morning as she has been limping on her front left leg and I had suspected she had hurt her leg coming up the back steps. The vet a while back had given me some pain pills for another problem she had been having so I told the vet she was being given one of those pain pills a day. The vet said she has a sprain and we are doing already what she would have suggested. Told the vet we still have plenty of the pain pills left so will not need any at this time. I feel better now that the vet has seen her. This was well worth the $27.50 that the vet charged me.

Despite the fact that nothing has actually been done, it is still worth the money for the peace of mind.

@Asylum the vet checked her legs by bending them and checked her over quite well so it was well worth every cent and more.

That is cheap to see the vet..would have cost a lot more here Marcy, but I know it is all worth it for poor Honey. Glad it is just the sprain and not something more serious. Hope she heals quickly.

@TiarasOceanView Hi and she is worth any price, there prices here are more reasonable then in a larger town although they are the only vet practice around here. I hope she heals up quickly also, thanks.

Hope she is better soon - that's a very reasonable office visit fee.

Poor honey. She is so pretty. We would do anything for our pets, no matter the cost, when we had them. Hopefully, Honey will heal quickly.

Poor honey, he must be frustrated to play today. I am sure after taking some medications, things will be fine.

@Shavkat I have to watch as my smaller dog doesn't understand that I can't let Honey play with her like they did.

@Marcyaz I do agree on that. We need to wait for the honey's muscle strain heal before playing with them.

@Shavkat It is hard because of my other dog wanting to play with her and doesn't understand why she can't now.

@VivaLaDani13 Thanks she is doing so much better now. She is as her name implies a Honey, I can take her anywhere and she is so good and loves to meet new people. She went to the nursing home the other day and everyone she met just loved her.

I am glad that the honey dog is ok. Who cares about the vet bill the dog health is more important.

So glad it was just a sprain and you have the pain meds. Our Molly plays ball with my husband every day and a few times she has made a slide that has caused her to limp and was given pain pills too. Scares me when a dog limps since that limp could mean so many things.

@Corbin5 That is exactly why I wanted her to see the vet to make sure it was not something else that could be really serious.

@jacoUK No need to strap her up just try to keep her time playing and romping down to a minimum. She is a beauty and so sweet, thanks.
