    Default Help with perhaps agility-type injury

    About a yr or so ago I posted about a yellow female that had a weird-type gait(walk)
    Yes. I went through x-raying hips, elbows, shoulders ,did CNM, EiC all came back good and clear.
    Someone posted a reply about an agility injury (rear legs).
    If anyone has any incite about this or can post a link with maybe a short video or someone's own experiences with this type of injury. I would be grateful.
    Thanks.

    Agility brutal on the body for hard driving labs. I have had three dogs with agility related injuries. Rear foot sprain/fracture, iliopsoas strain related to fall off obstacle, etc...I will try to find photos if I can.

    Here are the photos from Breeze's injury - As you can see no apparent injury at first (her jumping up with my eyes closed). Developed rear limp in subsequent weeks, years of rehab and therapy. It was terrifying to watch and the photos tell the story.

    Did you put her on a round of doxy? I have seen these weird gaits really be TBD.
