Complete Bed Rest Prescribed

Well Dr Rick (my vet) might prescribe complete bed rest?!  You never know!

I’m off to see him as my sore leg is back again, it came back at the weekend, then it fixed itself, now I’m limping again!

This time Dr Rick’s going to sedate me and mess with exam my leg.

In the meantime, I’ve been practicing the bed rest thing just in case that’s the solution!  Tee Hee

Mum, I think I need a cup of tea now and a massage! :)

Mum, I think I need a cup of tea now and a massage! Oh, and maybe a magazine! :)


I’ll keep you posted on how I get on :)


Have a Wonderful Wednesday! :)

    • Thanks Sugar,

      I’m sure resting right now, cos I’m sleeping off the medication from this morning, I can’t keep my eyes open! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  2. Hope the leg gets to feeling better soon!

  3. Please do keep us posted! Brychwyn has been limping a bit again since Saturday so he is also on a strict rest and his massage therapist comes for his Wednesday massage soon!
    Bethany recently posted..Hard at Work On Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

    • Hi Bethany,

      Sorry to hear about Brychwyn, I hope she’s better soon :)

      I got back from the vet a little while ago and I’ve been sleeping ever since, the news is I probably slightly tore my ACL, my knee is very swollen, and my vet says I can go back to being a normal dog! Yay! I’m allowed to have meds if it gets inflamed again and if it gets worse I’ll go back and they may need to do surgery, but as it may never get any worse they’re not going to do surgery just now – Yay! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  4. It for the best! We hope he figures out what is going on!

    • Thanks Elizabeth,

      We finally got to the bottom of it, Mum is so happy we now know what’s wrong and how to deal with it! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  5. Snoopy, you have our well wishes for your limp. You look like you’re getting some great practice with bed rest in. There’s nothing wrong with being a lazy dog for a few days. Especially if it means you’ll get better. Happy Wednesday!
    Kat recently posted..(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Look What We Found!My Profile

    • Thanks Kat,

      Luckily I got my bed rest and pampering whilst I could, cos Dr Rick said I could go back to normal dog activities now, which does mean fun, but I was enjoying having Mum waiting on me! Tee Hee

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  6. Sounds like you may have torn your cruciate ligament . I hope that’s not it Snoops because you won’t be able to run or jump for a long while. Fingers and paws crossed that the vet gives you a good report.

  7. Hope it wasn’t from all the partying you’ve been doing… Seriously, hope all goes well at your vet appointment and it is nothing serious! Woofs from Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie

  8. Hope you leg gets better quick! It’s no fun having to stay off it and missing out on all the wonderful walks! Hope you have a good vet like I do who can get you all fixed up! Woof! Woof!

    • Thanks Hailey and Zaphod,

      Luckily it’s not too major, just kinda annoying really, Mum’s just happy we know what it is now :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  10. We are worried about your leg Snoopy. But your bed looks very comfy!

    • Thanks Guys,

      I’m doing well, the vet says its a partial tear to my ACL, and he said I didn’t have to stay in bed – doh! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  11. Snoopy I do hope your leg is okay. I don’t think you would enjoy bed rest for very long – but maybe your mum would keep you company there ;)

    • Thanks Amy and Toby,

      That’s a good idea, Mum could just join me, when she’s not getting me the things I need, of course! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  12. Oh,Snoopy! Hope everything goes well! Looks like you have that bed rest thing down pat! :)
    Coralee and Finn recently posted..Wordless Wednesday: Photo CheckMy Profile

    • Thanks Coralee and Finn,

      I think I’ve got the bed thing licked, you’re right, just as well I was practicing! Tee Hee – Though Dr Rick said I don’t actually need to stay in bed, but still worth practicing I think! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  13. Paws crossed for a good report from your vet. And while your mom is bringing all that other stuff to you, I think you need the TV remote control. There’s nothing like bed rest with Animal Planet in the background!

    • Thanks Miss Harper Lee,

      The TV remote, why didn’t I think of that! Tee Hee – Just as well I have such clever friends! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  14. Great job, Snoopy! You look like you have that bed rest thing nailed!

  15. What kinds of magazines do you like to read, Snoopy? I’m curious.
    Flea recently posted..The Rat Terrier, a Multipurpose DogMy Profile

    • Hi Flea,

      I think my fave is Fido Friendly, cos they tell you about all the places you can go WITH your dog, but I have to confess, I mainly just look at the pictures of cute doggies! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  16. Snoopy we sure hope that all turns out ok! Barks and licks and love, Dakota and Mom
    Caren Gittleman recently posted..It’s National Pet Month in the U.S.!My Profile

    • Thanks Dakota and Mom.

      It’s all good, just a slight tear to my ACL, so it could have been much worse, right now I’m not even limping and haven’t been for a couple of days, it just comes and goes – I’ve got my paws crossed that it will heal really soon!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  17. Aw…you poor baby :(
    I hope you’ll get well soon. Lots of hugs from one human and 3 turtles

    Roxy the traveling dog recently posted..Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

    • Thanks Roxy,

      Luckily we discovered it’s just a partial tear ACL, I was hoping for a pulled muscle, but it could have been worse! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  19. OMD Snoopy joking apart we hope you will be OK and that it is nothing more than a sports injury. Lets hope it is a strain pain. Take it easy pal and let us know how it goes. Sending POTP to you. Have a restful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

      Your paw crossing must have worked cos I don’t need to do the bed rest thing, just as well I practiced whilst I could! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  21. Oh Snoopy, we are sorry to hear your leg is bothering you again. We hope it’s nothing serious! Bed rest sounds like a good idea!

  22. Oh no Snoopy! I’m so sorry to hear that your leg is bothering you again! Keep up the bed rest, it’s hard but for the best!
    Jen recently posted..Wordless Wednesday. Muddy Nose.My Profile

  23. Poor Snoopy. That leg will be back to its strong self before you know it. Mom’s old dog had to have bed rest AND walk on her leash inside the house for a month. But she got better and was good as gold after that. Good luck.

    Love and licks,
    Genevieve recently posted..Five Word FridayMy Profile

    • Thanks Cupcake,

      The last few days my leg has been feeling good again, so I’m hoping it’s on the mend! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  24. Uh oh! I hope you are feeling better soon – but enjoy the bed rest and pampering while you can! :)

      Just as well I did, cos Dr Rick didn’t prescribe it and the pawty’s over! Doh! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  25. Oh dear, hope you are better soon. My sister was at the vet this morning for her back leg issue but hers is old age, you are too young for that :)

    • Thanks Jessica,

      The cool thing is we now know that it’s a partial ACL tear, it’s always good once you know! :)

      Snoops :)

    Christie recently posted..Cruelty-free review: Seventh Generation bathroom cleaner works greatMy Profile

    • Thanks Christie,

      Oooh, I’m spoilt for choice, only problem is he didn’t prescribe bed rest in the end, however, Mum and Dad DO go out and leave me in charge sometimes, so magazines always come in handy when I’m lounging around on the sofa and bed when they’re not looking! Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  34. Typist dog has a similar problem and had to go to the vets, but it was all ok – except the vet banned ball throwing for a bit which is typists dogs favourite game in the whole wide world. I hope the same happens for you (that it is nothing not that balls are banned!!)

    • Hi Dalton and Typist Dog,

      Sorry to hear about the ball throwing ban, that sucks! Luckily I didn’t get such a ban, I’m super happy! It’s a partial tear to my ACL and right now it’s not even hurting anymore, so I’m a waggy dog! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  35. I hope the vet works out what is wrong and gets it sorted for you.

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  36. Hope it heals up quick Snoops!
    Misaki recently posted..Fetch? I don’t think so…My Profile

  37. Good luck Snoopy. Hope it doesn’t come to that, but if you do get stuck on bed-rest, make sure you play it up and get very very spoiled.

    • Thanks Donna,

      I was starting to get a little bored, so I was happy when Dr Rick said I could get off again! Think Mum was too, she was worn out! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

      Thanks buddy, right now it feels like new again, it kinda comes and goes, let’s hope for more goes! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  41. Snoopy looks like you are deserving a little pampering. Hope you feel better soon.
