Re: Sissy- sprained shoulder
Awe, if she's really hurting I'd tell the staff and see if they can work her in sooner at least for some pain meds or something.

As far as resting it, gating her to a smaller location so she's not trying to walk far or crate rest periods might help. Ali would stress in a closed crate if I'd done that in her later years because we just didn't use it anymore. So gating would have been the option I'd go with her. Then doing my activities nearby when possible.

Re: Sissy sprained shoulder
Thanks everyone,
I am going to call Monday and see if I can get her in. I am lifting her up and down from the couch and "our" lol bed to try to take some pressure off it.
We have had a hectic week, but things settled down a bit for now.
She isn't really active and I don't walk her, so I will try to give her as much help as I can. ;)

Poor Sissy. Hope you both have a restful next few days and that the vet is able to see her before Wednesday.

Re: Sissy sprained shoulder
Thanks Judi,
She seems to be a little better today. Also we are both having a quiet day after a hectic week, so keeping pretty low key:D

Re: Sissy's Mom
Does anyone know how you combat the dawn phenomenon???? Still doing research, but it might apply to Sissy??? She is always higher at 2-3 a.m and almost always higher in the morning than the night before.... This week I have had 2, 600 readings in the morning.We have had busy 2 weeks and her hurt leg. Tomarrow vet, then I am going to adjust something???? Maybe night time food first, and see if that changes anything. :eek:

Re: Sissy's Mom
Maybe she just needs some pain meds to help her feel better. She may be getting stiff through the night and it hurts more. Hope she's feeling better!
