I think he broke his leg!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Dory Man(Dorain) was harassing Twitch tonight sleeping on top of the dog crate. He tried to jump off & caught his leg. When I turned he was screaming & got himself loose. He's now limping. It's not visibliy broken, but my normally friendly Dory doesn't wanna sit in my lap. He already has a vet appt. for tomorrow am because he is rather thin(even for his petite stature). I am half tempted to take him to the vet tonight, but I don't like the one I can get ahold of. She didn't do well with my kits last time I saw her.

So Dory has to suffer through the night. I pray he didn't break his leg, maybe he got lucky & just sprained it. It's his back left leg & I can't get him to stop trying to walk on it! He hobbles, but is putting some pressure on it, so I feel a little better.

Can you spare some "Dory didn't break his leg" vibes for us?

Consider the vibes to be on their way. Poor Dory. It's good that you have the vet appointment tomorrow.

Poor baby. I think if it were broken he would not be trying to walk on it.
Hopefully he just twisted or sprained it! Good luck at the vets!

I agree if it was broken, he wouldn't want to use it at all.
Vibes coming your way for GOOD news!!

Awww Poor Dorian! I hope he didnt break his leg. Bagheera got stepped on about a month before he died (he was always under everyones feet) and we thought I had broken his leg it ended up just being sprained. Took about a week and a half for him to stop limping. I hope its nothing serious.

Dorian's vet visit went OK. He peed on the vet. He has good aim...got him in the face somehow. I worred all night about my little stud muffin. Turns out that he sprained a toe. I didn't know they could sprain toes, but all well..... He's on two different meds, can't remember what.

I got more Amitriptyline for Ophelia & spoke with the vet. He reccomended putting Lily on it as well as she is so stressed from Ophelia attacks that she bites me. ...sigh.... What am I going to do with Ophelia?

Damita went along to get her eyesight checked. Not only does she has very limited eyesight(no longer responds to turning on a light), but she has some hearing loss as well.

Oh what a vet trip! At least my "boyfriend" is OK. His bloodwork came back normal, too. He just seems to be so skinny because of high metabolism.
Thanks for the vibes guys. It meant a lot to me to know you're all there for me. I assumed the worst with Dorian...what mother wouldn't?

YES!! I went back & fixed it. She's the least trouble of them all....I should be calling Dorian that.... Thanks for pointing it out....

Of course, he's milking this for all it's worth. I caught him chasing after Ophelia....then he saw me & started limping. Laster, I caught him walking just fine on his leg. What a "momma's boy"!

Our little furbabes sure can be little connivers sometimes.

I'm glad he wasn't hurt real bad.
