My dog got hurt today

I was out with my two Springers today. We were working a WMA just west of my house. My little female, Ring, hit scent and was trailing a bird when she went down. It looked like she tripped in a hole. She got back up and continued on and stopped and laid down briefly. My male Onee ran past her and flushed a hen, but Ring showed no interest. She came back to me and gave me a look that said "I'm done", so we quit.

I can see no external injury, and she walks just fine, no limp or anything like that. But she refuses to run or jump. I'm going to let her rest in the house for the rest of the weekend and all next week. I hope she hasn't damaged a leg.

I love that little wench dog :cry: .

My oldest Vizsla suffers from the same problem. I've been looking over the internet for a liquid food for hunting dogs. It very easy to digest and from what I've read it is supposed to be great for dogs like ours.

In the meantime I've heard that a few packets of honey go a long way and also feed a lot of fat and carbos the day before, much like a long distance runner I guess.

Once I track this liquid supplement down I'll let you know. If anyone out here knows what the heck I'm looking for please let me know where to find it.
