ACL??

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever experienced an ACL injury in your dog?  Last week my pointer was in full stride and hit a patch of ice and her rear leg "slipped" (gotta love the MN ice :)) and she let out a yelp.  She continued on her trek through the cattails and woods and eventually stopped limping.  Over the weekend she was fine and just now I went out to throw the ball and when she slowed/stopped to grab the ball she limped up again.  Not sure if it's a hip or knee but will keep running or at least quick stops to a minimum.

Thanks

How about we take her to the vet in the morning and have it checked out.  She could keep running on a bad situation that could cause permanent damage.  It's worth your time and cost to make sure your pall is okay.

Tough to tell could be a sprain or a strain ( soft tissue dammage) or it could be a knee, sounds like a trip to the vet is in order..

With all hopes it's a soft tissue injury, like others have said, trip to the vet is in order. Last year before I put my lab down she went down an embankment, lost sight of her then heard the yelp. 150$ later found out it was minor but the money was worth the peace of mind

She seems to be just fine.  On Monday night, she was able to jump on the bed, couch etc...  Run down the stairs in the morning and jump like normal playing tug-o-war.  Last night we went out for a walk in the meadow and she was running like a bandit and trying to find every field mice possible.  I'm sure I just jumped to immediate worry but it doesn't seem to be anything major.  However the older I get and the older she gets this Minnesota Ice is for the birds...
