I got home, and started to worry. What if it is more than that? I have really been looking forward to showing at USDAA Regionals this year, and both our dogs have byes to the second round of Grand Prix. I don't want to hurt him by asking him to run if it's something more serious. I have a vet friend who told me that many general vets don't know much about iliopsoas, and I know a few people whose dogs have this issue. I know it's a long and difficult rehab process, and I want to get started doing the right things if that is what it is.
Of course the only symptoms we have is his ONE incidence of limping, and his slight resistance to hip extension. It honestly could be nothing. But it could be something. So, we got a recommendation from a friend for an orthopedic vet and will make an appointment for as soon as possible (though he has a long waiting period) and our trainer volunteered to take Bentley to see her vet/dog chiro. friend for a second opinion. She is more familiar with agility-related injuries. We can always cancel the appointment with the orthopedic vet if we want.
All that to say that Bentley has been very bored as he is on crate rest. We put him in an ex-pen in the evenings and he is not a fan!
We gave him his early birthday present (his birthday is in July) to keep him busy. Here both he and Lexi are working at the Nina Ottosson Magic toy for the first time.
