Dog on a cushion

"Our Chihuahua, Sophie Marie, was frantically looking for the stool she uses to get on and off on the bed, and I leaned over to show her were it was. We bumped heads, and Sophie Marie fell backward. She first hit the stool and then the floor. The next morning she showed signs of lameness, and I took her to her veterinarian. Our collision caused a sprain that kept Sophie Marie from her regular activity for 4 to 5 weeks. It was hard to keep her still for that long, but Sophie Marie is now back to normal." -Linda D., Medford, NJ
