My gorgeous old girl came home earlier with a limp. We took her to the vet and he's kept her in to sedate her for further investigations. He thinks she might've broken her shoulder/hip.

I'm waiting for a phone call and feel like crying. She'll be frightened and in pain. I feel sick.

Sorry to hear this OP. How old is she?

She's between 10 - 15 (we don't know for sure because she was a rescue) but she's had a tough life and is older than her years!

Poor thing is home. Woozy from the sedation and she's stress shedding.

No breaks but they think she's torn her shoulder muscles and has a couple of superficial abrasions.

She's on painkillers and antibiotics.

My poor girl!
