Jack Russell jumping up now not walking right

by Scott Smith

Hi Guys,


Last Sunday my jack Russell was trying to jump up at the 4ft wall to see another dog. Since them she hasn't been right I've had her at the vets and they couldn't really find anything. While I was stroking her lower back at the side she yellped now I'm thinking she's pulled a muscle in her side.

Do you think that's a good diagnosis, if she doesn't improve I'm taking her back to the vets.

Jack Russell having trouble walking NEW

Those darn Jack Russells just love to jump! I think that is a very fair diagnosis. Give it a week or so and try your very best to contain your Jack, if possible! - have limited walks, no jumping what so ever, encourage lying down by crating. And if things don't improve then take her to the vet. An x-ray may be in order to see if there is more damage than meets the eye. Usually rest works like a charm though. Good luck!
