Something is really wrong with Copper. I haven't spent much time with him today because we rearranged our entire front room, but he went to the store with us and waited in the car while we ate with my husband at his job.
So we got home and he ate, as usual, and then with all the hustle of getting the kids off to bed and the dogs all fed for the night, etc, I didn't pay much attention to him either and then my daughter found some feces on the floor. I could tell it was Copper who did it. But he was lying by our bedroom door, his feet tucked up under him and his head out in front of him. I called to him to "go outside" and he didn't want to get up.
Finally got up and outside, and then back inside - and laid down again like that, and when he moves he groans. I picked him up as gently as possible and put him on the couch.
He has an appt. 1st thing in the AM - but he's scaring me
I've never seen him like this.
The thing is he's kind of hunched up and when you touch his sides, just in front of his hips(?) he trembles like it hurts. I don't get it.
I'm so scared for him - I'm about ready to rush him to the ER vet but it's clear in Tri Cities (35 miles away) and the kids are in bed.
If he gets much worse though, I'll bring him in tonight...I know there's probably nobody on here right now, but it makes me feel better to think someone might be
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
