Tank slipped and fell
I was playing fetch with him outside and I threw the ball and Tank went running after it and fell and slid on his bad hip It happened about 2 days ago and he is still a little sore. He has a limp to him anyway so I dont know if it is from slipping or from just having a bad hip. His other hip is starting to go to so I am having to be more careful. I walked him to my uncles yesterday to get my cousin and by the time we got there I could tell his leg was hurting him by the way he was walking(leaning against me and it was only a 10 minute walk and we stayed at my uncles for 30 minutes) he wasn't whimpering or anything though. Should I just keep him on "bed rest" for a few more days? If it gets worse I will force my mom to take him to the vet. He is only 7 and already has 1 bad hip with the other going. The vet always checks that leg when he goes in(even if it is just for shots) he says there is a very good chance his legs will be getting a lot worse in the next year or two. Tank is still crazy(sometimes i think he has adhd) and it is hard to keep him calm at times.
It sucks that they have to get older
