A week ago my little chin was running around and when it was time to put her away we did the usual chase routine. She was under the couch and my boyfriend picked up the end of it and she was on the opposite end being pinned to the ground. I picked her up immediately and she seemed stunned she only barked a little bit and then seemed almost normal. I put her in her cage (while calling every emergency vet as it was 2 am) she was able to jump to the second level, she took treats from my hand, and she jumped down to the bottom all without looking in pain she was just kinda stiff. She was able to walk around even though she looked funny she could still move. Then Sunday I think she tried running on her flying saucer wheel and reinjured herself. After that she seems unable to stand, and she really cannot walk at all, when she does try she's very off balance it's heartbreaking to watch. I took her to the vet immediately once she got worse and the doc didn't seem too concerned he gave her a shot of prednisone and now I just take her out twice a day to hold the water bottle and force her to drink and she won't eat chin food but she's been eating oats raisins and shredded wheat. I took her back to the vet today (friday) she got another shot and he said absolutely nothing is broken. He said to give her 5cc blue gatoraid 2x a day and if she's not better in 5 days then she will get an xray. So my question is: if nothing is broken why can't she walk? She also has a little bit of a runny nose but it's not that bad. So if anyone has any advice or been in a similar situation please help! Also if anyone is familier with this type of injury and knows about how long until she should be walking? I'm trying to avoid the stress of an xray but if I need to I will do anything. She's 2 1/2 year old white/mosaic-ish cutie pie!
