Smile I'm new too!

I'm new to the Forum too. I have a beautiful 1yr 1 mo old silver standard poodle. Her name is Daisy, though Energizer Bunny would have been more appropriate. I'm not computer savvy however. Getting my posts right will take time.

Default Hello All

I'm new to the site and delighted I discovered it. I have a beautiful silver (in the process of turning from black to silver) 13 month old standard poodle. Her name is Daisy, though Energizer Bunny would have been more appropriate. I plan to show her in obedience and rally-o, providing she stops limping. She plays so wildly she's hurt her leg. "Rest her," the vet said. In my dreams, maybe. She's been thinking up wild and "wonderful" ways to keep herself amused. I'm not quite as amused as she is. Has anyone had this problem? If the dog doesn't slow down enough to let the soft tissue injury heal (and Daisy would soon need a shrink if I kept her crated), does it leave permanent damage? Daisy has a recheck today, and I'll ask the vet the same question, but I'd appreciate hearing from people with "real time" experience. TIA. I'll try soon to post some pictures of my Little Love.

Hello Poodles3mom, welcome! Daisy sounds adorable... and spunky :-) As my dog has been through several experiences that have made extended rest necessary, I have to agree with your vet that you rest her until she heals up. My dog was not a willing 'rester' either and between the pleading brown eyes and her creativity, it was not easy! During those times I leash-walked her in the yard instead of letting her run loose, took her on shorter but more frequent neighborhood walks, and filled her kong and her bone with everything I could think of to keep her occupied. My dog does like her crate, however, and it also helped to move her crate to where I was going to be (as watching tv, etc) so that she at least felt like she was part of whatever was going on. I hope you get good news from the vet and am looking foward to hearing more about Daisy and hopefully seeing some pictures :-)

Hiya and welcome to the forum. Freckel my 5 year old sprocker has had soft tissues aliments in his front paw.We would rest him get the ok from the vet to start uping his exercise and it would go again, He was lame for about a year, The vet then put him on glocosomean(spelling) and this help a great deal and he got better. He has a limp now and again but it only lasts maybe a couple of days. Hope this helps a bit. Can't wait to see pics of your fur babie.

Hello & welcome to df. Hope your pup's injury gets better soon. I know how hard it is to keep young animals quiet. When my cat was spayed it was impossible to keep her quiet until the stitches came out. The only time she rested was in the crate.

Thanks for all the welcomes and advice. My vet. like yours, Blunder Paws, has ordered glucosamine, and I hope it works as well for Daisy as for your pup. They're still thinking surgery may be in her future for a torn cruciate (?) ligament, though that injury is not showing up definitively yet.
