I am not sure how or when Callie hurt her back but I did notice today that she was acting less energetic than normal. I just thought she was tired, but after awhile she started shaking and became clingy. Then I knew something was up. She didn't want to walk anywhere and whined at me when I went to pick her up so I figured I'd have to go to the vet to make sure it wasn't anything worse. So after $108 she got to see the vet and he said it was her back. She has pain killers (which more $) and is not supposed to jump, do stairs, or run... which is hard. Let's hope this isn't the start of life long back issues. She's not even 2.
I want to think this may have happened yesterday when she was playing in the snow... I can't think of anything else that would have caused it.
