    DefaultMy poor Simba - Updated

    I've noticed the last few times after we've been out walking or playing in the yard, she babies her back left leg. Wed. nite DH was throwing the ball for them and Thunder plowed right into her sending her to the ground. As of today, still no weight on her back left leg. She has a vet appt. at 5 today.

    I'm hoping it's nothing major, but the fact she hasn't put any weight on it yet, bothers me big time. Poor thing, I shouldn't laugh, but did, trying to watch her go potty and poo and then try to scratch up the dirt. Kinda impossible on 3 legs.

    She's 3.5 yrs old.

    Update - torn ACL, surgery Tues.

    Oh no.. I'm so sorry to hear about your girl. There are PLENTY of people who are on here who have gone through the ACL surgery with their dogs.. unfortunately it's pretty common.

    Good thoughts and prayers for a good, complication-free surgery!!
