but sometimes finding out what it is that causes the problem can be frustrating. Our pretty girl Katie who is 12 started limping a few weeks ago. Off to the vet, had Xrays and could not see anything but what appeared to be an old injury where her toes had been broken. Give her some aspirin they said. And don't let her lick it and try to keep her quiet. Katie is anything but quiet. She hops and bounces around all her waking hours. Yesterday things started getting worse again. I have checked her paw, I have soaked it figuring MAYBE there was something in it and it was getting infected. Today I took her to the animal hospital. They cannot find anything either. So we did a soft wrap on her little paw and put her on a pain med to try to make her a bit more comfortable and I check with her regular vet again tomorrow. Don't you wish they could talk sometimes?
