Unhappy Shine went to the ER

We were gone for 5 hours yesterday. Came home, went to let her out of the crate, and she could barely walk. Non weight bearing on left front leg, and only partial weight on left back leg. She was in a lot of pain, and we went straight to the ER. While xrays didn't show anything wrong with her elbow, it was the only place she showed pain during the manipulations of her joints. She was given a hydrocodone injection, and put on strict rest. But they let her come home. The meds worked till 230am. She woke us up crying, when she tried to reposition herself. I gave her, her next pain meds, and she is resting. If we don't start to see improvement, she will have futher testing done. As in a MRI, or scope her elbow.
Right now she will not get up, or lay down without help. Will only walk slowly on three legs if forced to by vet. My husband or I just carry her. Shine is not a pitty party kind of dog, so I know she has to be in a lot of pain to act this way.

We drove her to A&M this morning.
They are thoroughly going over her, and doing more xrays of her elbow.

She is spending the night at A&M.. Her elbow is now swollen, and she is in pain without IV pain meds. They tapped the elbow to test the fluid for infection. Fluid is not clear like it should be, but first pathology reports do not show infection. But they will be cultured. If infection showed, they would have flushed, and scoped the elbow. And still may later. They are going to test some of her other joints tonight. Depended on what they find will determine if she stays a ortho patient, or if she is changed to internal medicine.

What a bummer reading through posts. Feel so bad for Shine. We went through a similar issue with joints in rear leg, but this one sounds serious. We are praying for you and your V.

Oh, how awful..what a terrible end to the holiday. At least she's in a good place getting good treatment, I hope you take some comfort in that, and they can fix this .
