    DefaultAmber

    I think I broke Amber. Last night in agility we started off doing just a simple jump chute with tunnels on both ends. the first run through went fine but on the second run through we started with the tunnel and she ran in the tunnel and about 1/2 way thru she yelps. She comes out of the tunnel a bit slow so I stop her and check all her feet and toes thinking she had pinched one or possibly cut one on a broken wire or something. She checks out fine and is walking around like nothing happened. I restart her into the tunnel and this time as soon as she hits the curve part she yelps and comes out of the tunnel limping on her left front foot. She is putting weight on it but is doing the head bobing limp gait at a walk. She is on Pain and anti-inflamatory's now so we will see in a few days how she is, but I have a feeling this might be really bad.

    Did you check in and under the tunnel for maybe something she was stepping on and thus hurting her foot?

    I wonder if she twisted funny in the corner. Make sure she rests, too. I know most dogs will run around some if they have had some pain meds, so keep her quiet. If she doesn't improve find a good vet who works on performance dogs. Not all vets understand what our dogs go through as competition dogs.

    Oh no! Are you training outside? If so, did you check for a scorpion in the tunnel? We have that issue where we train and are constantly warned not to stick our arms in the tunnels to move them. Even found one on the A-frame once. :-X I hope Amber is feeling better soon and doesn't have any lasting tunnel issues.

    Well Amber is doing better now, but is still limping but just slightly. It definately isn't her foot it is either her elbow or shoulder or one of those muscles. She wasn't entered in anything for a while so she will have plenty of time to rest up and get better.
