|I'm sorry, I actually meant they re-tested her again for Lyme disease last week. The panel came back negative. Her blood test results should be back today, just waiting for the vet to call. She is going to have x-rays tomorrow.
She still had trouble over the weekend, and just seems "stiff" in the back end. She has not been limping as much, but does occasionally seem to lose her balance, but always catches herself. She still runs around and jumps on furniture and my bed. I'm confused as to the limping, if she is still so active. She does seem more agitated than usual though. She is starting fights with my puppy and my mom's dog.
My family now has a baby gate at the top of the steps, due to her balance issues. We do not want her falling down the steps.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed my vet can figure this out. Trixie is around 6, so not terribly old. The vet did mention it could be arthritis, but could that happen in a 6 year old dog?
