    I agree with Lisa, why do they always do this on holidays or Sundays??

    I'm not sure there is much you can do besides keep an eye on her. I'd be careful about giving pain killers. As you said they will mask the pain which will make her feel great and very apt to overdue which isn't good whether it's a pulled muscle or a back issue.

    I haven't done the laser treatment s but have heard good things about them

    Rae, I would be very careful giving her Meloxicam in case it is her tummy bothering her and not her back. It is an NSAID. I got a stern lecture at the e-vet about giving Sofie NSAID for pain. Apparently it can make nausea and vomiting worse, as well as make stomach pain worse. It also can suppress the appetite.

    Yikes! Thanks for the heads up on the Meds, ladies. She's still acting ok, and Brian does offer laser therapy. To the toe test she said "Mama! Whatchoo doin? My foot's not supposed to go like dat!" So that was good. Keeping an eye on her for now, and the good news is that we live about 10 minutes from the clinic and Brian lives closer.
