Injured Reserve List

Mesa has been placed on the 5-day Injured Reserve List for the Bunny/Yote Chasing Team. He started limping noticeably on Wednesday. I checked his back paw for signs of trauma or cactus spine/goat head but found nothing. He looked pitiful hopping around on 3 legs. We took him to the vet yesterday and the diagnosis was a possible torn ligament. Hopefully it's just a strain. He's on some anti-inflammatory meds, and if he's not better in a week, he may have to go in for more extensive tests. He seems to be better already, though, so hopefully that's not an issue. The other prescription was no walkies for at least 5 days. I'm sure that's driving him nuts as he stares up at the mesa and sees all of the bunnies/squirrels running around up there.
