This past Sunday mom and dad took Starr to the emergency vet ER place. After about 5 hours they came back home. My sister is not able to put much weight on her back right leg. They did x-rays and stuff on both her hips and her knees. The doctor came back and told mom and dad that they both looked clean for a dog Starr's age (she is 12 now). She said she sees some arthritis in her hips but nothing more than a dog her age would be expected to have. They are not sure why Starr can't put any weight down and gave her a prescription for some Tramadol and some joint supplement chews. They said if she isn't feeling better in 10 days or gets worse that we need to take her back in. Starr could use some healing vibes from all our blog pals. It is now several days later and she is about the same.
