Well, the vet did x-rays and said her joints look great.* He thinks it's a partial CCL tear.* * He referred us to a surgeon and we are trying to get her an appt ASAP.* Meantime he gave us some pain pills to keep her comfortable.* He really thinks if it's torn it's probably not too bad yet, but I want the surgeon to scope it anyway and fix it if need be.* She's too young to be in pain.
That's all we know for now.* Meantime I am going to research CCL tears.
Thank you all for your support.* I know you guys probably know how this feels.

Hey all, my sweet girl Shiner is in a lot of pain.* Her foot has been bothering her for a few weeks, we had to take her to the emergency vet a couple weeks ago because she was in so much pain.* But she seemed better after a couple days rest and some medicine, but now it's hurting again with a vengence.* *DH is taking her to the vet at 9:00.* Poor thing just paces and pants, I don't think she got a wink of sleep last night and neither did we.* We gave her some aspirin and it helped a little.
I hope that when she goes to the vet she doesn't act normal like she usually does.* She can be pacing and panting and in horrible pain at home but once she gets to the vet she acts fine, so vet can't figure out what's wrong.* *We are pretty sure it's her foot...but can't tell for sure.
Anyway, we are incredibly worried about her.* So send some good thoughts Shiner's way.
Our best thoughts are on Shiner's way right now and we hope she'll be feelling better very soon.
You got it!
What did the emergency vet determine? I hope your regular vet can figure it out.
"Each is a creature of Earth and is entitled to reside on it with dignity"
good thoughts out to you and shiner!
Thank you all so much.
The emergency vet didn't really determine anything except her hock was swollen and she was reluctant to put weight on it. She told us to take her to the real vet, but like dummies we didn't because we thought she was ok. I feel like this is all my fault.
Poor Shiner...sending good thoughts.

Best thoughts......i hope you can figure it out soon, and that she doesn't continue to suffer.......
