Poor Pixie

My sweet little Pixie was out behind me last night doing her business, and she gave a yelp. I turned to see what was wrong, and she hobbled up to me. When we got inside, she was holding her tiny, little foot up, so I looked and felt, but couldn't see anything wrong. Hobbling around with that foot off the floor, didn't jump up into the chair with me; when I got up, she went under the coffee table, just not herself. This morning when we went out for her morning business, she walked up to me to pick her up - she wouldn't even go. She's always held that leg up when she tinkles, and it must really hurt when she does that, so she wouldn't.

I've read online that toy poodles, especially, are real candidates for joint sub-luxation - but that it goes out and back in. When it wasn't better this morning, I felt her knee and couldn't tell so we have an appointment with the vet at 2:30 to see what is happening. If she confirms that's what it is, I just may take her to my chiropractor this afternoon to see what she has to say about it. I know she does treat pets, too.

  1. Hope she gets better quick, Charlene.

  2. Awww, poor little thing. My heart goes out to her and you Charlene. I have four furry friends, wait a minute....five furry friends at my house (forgot about the cat) three are on the bed with me as I type this!
    Hope she gets better.

  3. Poor little girl. I hope everything is okay. Maybe she just got a kink. Huggles!!!!
