| Send some prayers for Suzy. We're taking her in to get her upper front right leg checked. She's been limping since our big snow last week. It's not her leg part, but around her upper chest area. Could be just a pulled muscle. Sometimes she is a weekend warrior and runs to fast with Bear.
She doesn't seem to be in really lots of pain, just stiff.

|Hope it's just a pulled muscle.|

|Okay, its just a pulled muscle, old racing injury...sprain. It can't be anything real serious & that's all there is to it.|

| Saw the vet. He checked both legs. Did range of motion.
He said it is nothing to worry about and says Suzy has arthritis in both shoulders. In one of her shoulders he could feel the bones
grind like athritis. We are going to give Suzy some medicam
for the next few days. When Suzy was walking the limp
wasn't too bad. So she has old lady bones.

|Whew!! Just reading this. Take a breath, take a breath. Good old glucosomine should take care of this.|

|We will get some from Claudia of Greyhound Gang. She's going to be at Sandy Paws this year.|

Thank goodness that's all it is.
I give mine glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM daily. (Claudia will get you started on a good regimen). Red gets 1/2 of a 227 mg Previcox once daily for his arthritis, which he has had since he was 7 years old. He couldn't stomach the Meticam and the Previcox works great.

|Claudia is great. She'll get Suzy fixed up in no time. You should see a big change in Suzy after her "concoction" gets into her system.|

|This big brother thing at work is screwing with my keeping up with my friends. Tom, sorry Suzy had a problem, jumping with joy that she's OK. You can relax now, a few pills and she'll be fine.|

| She had a great run yesterday with the boys in our run. She still thinks she is 2 and not 12.
