Rocksteady hurt his leg

Post by Tribble on Tue Jan 15, 2013 10:44 pm

We noticed last night that he was limping, wouldn't put any weight on his back left foot.
I picked him up, and he was happy out, sniffing and licking, and even let m,e handle his entire leg, and put a little pressure on it.
I think it's a sprain, he did this to himself before when he was a little troublemaker, and he recovered in a few days.
I'm just asking for reassurance mainly, as whenever Ben sees him he gets this look on his face; like he's witnessing someone shovel orphan kittens into a furnace or something.
Anyway, Rocky is bright, attentive, and cen get around. He's also drinking and eating plenty.

Any other diagnoses?

Awww - poor Ben! I'm quite sure Rocky's fine <3 and it's probably a sprain, as you suggest. If you want to feel like you're doing something you could try children's suspension nurofen syrup? Smile it's an effective painkiller and reduces swelling Smile
