    This past weekend, Layla fell out of the bed at the hotel (we were attending our club's specialty). The bed was really high, and she must have landed hard. Her chiropractor has seen her Sunday and today -- she was very misaligned, but today was much better than today. She can walk, but she really doesn't want to. She's not eating either.

    I'm still very worried, so I'm taking her to her regular vet for x-rays this afternoon. Please keep my girl in your prayers -- she means everything to me.

    that's great that you were able to get her seen by a chiropractor so quickly. if you can put things back before that becomes normal, it's much easier to maintain how it should be.

    Oh no!!! Poor Layla!!! I will most certainly keep both of you in my prayers. She looks so sad in that picture.
    Please let us know as soon as you can once you get news from the vet.

    Virtual hugs to your sweet Layla! :hugs

    I hope it just normal aches and pains and she starts feeling better soon!

    Poor Layla! Perhaps she has some pulled muscles...maybe a short course of Metacam needs to be ordered by the vet. Did the chiropractor say where she was tight? Usually they can tell. Fingers and paws crossed that she's feeling better!

    Is she still not eating? That is very worrisome :(
    Any news from the vet?

    I was hoping she'd improved, Chris. So sorry to hear she's still in pain. Xrays sound like a good idea. If she's in pain she may not want to eat. Sending prayers and pats for your girl and hugs to you...I know how special she is.
