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: .

Sorry to hear about your dog. I am certainly not a vet.....but be real careful about hip dysplasia in spaniels....I had a Brit back in the 70's that almost the same thing happened to. Looked like he tripped up in a small streambed up in Washington,
got very lethargic for a week or so....and had to be euthanized.
You did not say what leg it was....but be careful of the rear ones!
