Customer Question

She is walking with back end down and limp

Customer: Rosa 2 years
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Rosa?
Customer: No I'm planning to get her spay on Tuesday
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

I am sorry you are worried.

Is she acting like this
How long is she walking this way?

Has she ever had kittens?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
had kittens and sometimes like that and walks around like it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Started this morning but she has been howling and the back legs against a wall started couple of days ago
Expert:  Terri replied 1 year ago.


You do not need to worry one bit. Rosa is experiencing a heat cycle.

For the next week to ten days she will howl, push up against things. walk with her end up, etc.

They don't usually limp but it is possible.

When you get her spayed Tuesday you will stop this behavior.

In the meantime she should be just fine......loud but fine.

Please let me know if you wish to discuss this further.
