She's in excellent shape, Trains a minimum of 4 days a week, hunted for 3 days 2 weeks ago, and only made 18 easy retrieves over those 3 days.
We left yesterday morning to hunt the river due to everything being froze up here, although temps were cold in morning it warmed up to 45 by lunch, The hunting was terrible, she never made a retrieve yesterday! and never was in water no deeper than her stomach, We rode around in the boat a little and scouted, and other than her running around on some islands and mud flats she did not get any more active than just a normal day playing in the yard.
She rode inside the truck with us on the way down, and slept inside on the bed with me last night in the cabin, it actually was a easy laid back day, done more sitting around, and boat riding than anything.
We all woke up this morning, and as soon as I let her out to air I noticed her tail was pinned to her rump, then as she came back up to cabin, her tail has that classic 2 to 3 inches straight out from base, then straight down from there look. She showed signs of not being able to get comfortable on the way home in the truck as well, but no real severe pain.
I had some remidayl left over from her leg surgery when she was a pup that I keep in her first aid kit I carry hunting with us, and gave her a dose early this morning. Also everyone reccomends Boswellia for prevention, but she has been on this for months to help with inflammation from her leg injury during her rehab, and I have contiunued to give it to her since as a prevenative measure ! So she already has that in her system for a while now.
Just courious if any of ya'll have had a dog come up with limp tail for no apparent reason ?
I have her crated now and resting, any other tips to heal her up ?
