I posted a message the other day about my collie cross Kim, who died suddenly a few days ago. since then we have had another shock and our oher dog Rosie has hurt her left leg. She is limping and putting all her weight on the good leg at the moment - the vet says she has a strain/sprain and has pulled the hamstring muscle quite badly and she will be on anti-inflammatory tablets for a week. Does anyone have experience of this type of injury and how long it normally takes to heal? Is there any likelihood of recurrence? We are planning to take her just for little gentle walks on the lead and mainly rest it these next few days. Any advice anyone can offer to help her recovery would be great.
