Papi Having Difficulty On Getting Up.



When I woke up this morning, Papi was very quiet laying down in her cage and this surprised me as she is the nosiest in the house and will bark very loud to wake everyone up. I carried her out and she started to cry when I put her down. There were no sign of injury at all but she just couldn't stand up. I tried helping her to get up so that I could wear diaper on her. At first I thought maybe the nails were causing the problem since they were a bit long, I trimmed them and the problem still the same. After a while I called the vet and ask his opinion and showed him the video above. He gave me some pain killer for Papi and I will see how it goes tomorrow. If there is no improvement on Papi after a few tablets, I will take her to the vet and do some thorough check up.

Ngo - try putting a bit of carpet under Papi, something she can't slip on. It won't solve the problem, but it will help her get to her feet and give a clealer indication on how bad the problem is.
The fact that she cried when you put her down is worrying.

She seems 'okay' today but whenever Bobo accidentally walk over her and knocked her, she will sort of like 'scream', by the way she is very 'sensitive' and like to 'scream' a lot eventhough she sees her own shadow in the window.

But she can get up today by herself, better than yesterday and now she is walking around. I am planning to get her some vitamins or calcium from veganessentials dot com soon, just for her supplement.

Damn, I don't know enough about canine health of behaviour to be of much help.
It could be that she can get up because her pain is being managed.

@ nikki

not to worry nikki, I am sure she will be fine in no time. She just had another pill just a while ago and I will look after her to see if she has any further complication.

ps : Alera pee ALOT today and today consider a 'messy' day for me :P

I know with you Ngo, Papi has the best possible care. I just don't understand what is happening to her :( As you know, it always hurts to see animals struggling, you know what I mean? Please keep me updated (as I know you will)

*grin* Awww give Alera a snuggle from me and tell him I say not to make your days messy! ;)
