Did sleeping with you make a difference? If you want to keep a crate we have had good luck with a Big Barker bed crate pad in a wire crate, its 4 inches of foam and really comfortable. Cisco sleeps upside down like a bug or on his side with his legs full out. We have a crate like yours for the truck, its much tighter.

That looks a lot more painful, than I first thought. It gives me the impression that her back leg (same side) is also affected, but to a lesser degree. Dogs are very good at hiding pain, until it's to painful to hide any longer.
I would be sure to put a non slip rug in front of her crate. Does she slip a lot on the hardwood floors, when playing?
If so, I would put down a lot more rugs.

First let me say, I've spent tons of money on my dogs at veterinary specialist. Some of it was to easy my mind, and some of it was truly warranted. If she were mine, she would be at a veterinary college being thoroughly evaluated.

Update on little Bo
Two days ago took little Bo to a veterinarian chiropractor ( Thanks for the suggestion, Texasred). She didn’t find anything that she thought was super serious but she did say that the right side of Bo’s neck was very tight and that the right side of her spine was tight. She did some adjustments and suggested that we come back in 2 weeks. She also would like us to send her video of Bo walking so that she can observe her gait. We tried to walk her for Dr. Jess but Bo was being a maniac running and jumping around like a nut!😂 She thought that she could have been torqued during birth or by the usual crazy antics of Vizsla puppies during exuberant play. I can happily say that since Bo has been adjusted by the chiropractor she has woken up 2 days in a row without yelping in pain. Of course she has been sleeping in our bed so I’m sure that she is happier with that arrangement as well😂
The icing on the cake is that Dr. Jess grew up with Vizslas. Her family bred and showed them. She was terrific with Bo! We are keeping our fingers crossed that this does the trick.
Thank you again for all of your responses. I love this forum!

I will check out that crate. I really would like her to continue to sleep in a crate at night. Might be difficult now that she has spent several nights in our bed and seems to really like it 😂

I'm so happy it helped.
I'm big believer in using chiropractors for this wild, and crazy athletic breed.
