Saturday morning when we woke up he was limping every where and wouldn't stand on his back left leg. I was so worried about him. While we were still in bed, I turned on the TV and just happened to see a show on Animal Planet about boxers, "Pets 101". I was so excited so of course had to watch it. There just so happened to be a boxer that had a back left leg injury and wouldn't walk on it and was limping around alot like Beckett. The dog ended up having a torn ligament in his knee and had to have surgery and lots of physical therapy! I immediately started crying, like big ugly crying... and called the vet to see if we could get Beckett in. I was panicked to say the least!
After he had been up for a little bit and walking around he stopping limping and didn't really have any issues for the rest of the day. We summed it up to muscles cramps since he's been running with us so much. We decided he was ok and took him for another run Sunday morning and decided that I would probably cancel his vet appointment... Probably wasn't the best idea but he hadn't been limping in 24 hours. After we got home and he took a nap he woke up and started limping again! I felt horrible for taking him running with us. Thank goodness I never got around to cancelling his appointment.
