i have a 12 wk old Yorkie weighs 2lbs. Have had her for three weeks and she's been the happiest, fun loving, playful and healthy eater. Last nite after a normal day of play and fun, she took a little nap and woke suddenly screaming in pain and hiding. It was normal feeding time so fed her as usual and she ate well. Slowly over the next 3-4 hrs she experienced more severe pain, some stiffness, and it occurred when she was just lying still or when picking her up to take outside to potty. She had a restful nite and this morning the symptoms seemed to get worse. I took her to ER clinic and Vet examined her and said it appeared she had injured her shoulder. After X-rays and radiologist Report, nothing definitive could be found anywhere. Vet said there were insignificant indications of gastroenteritis but very mild and possibly a smal injury to her right wrist. He prescribed pain med, anti inflammatory, antibiotics and probiotics and I brought her home. She's done noting but lie in playpen and every time she moves a certain way she screams in pain. Oh, and she has started peeing on herself when she's crying in pain. I'm concerned the Vet has misdiagnosed her condition as she has no limp or specific reaction when I touch her shoulder or wrist. She eaten only once today but she isn't raking any Water. I'm terribly worried. … read more
