Onetoomany, you were right. The vet was out today and Stella's legs were the least of my concerns. He gave her the first of three tetracycline treatments and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will work and she doesn't need an IV.
Administering the drug didn't go smoothly either. She had a bad reaction to it and fainted, falling into the fence and breaking it but, fortunately, not injuring herself. My heart was just racing and I was shaking so bad because I was not expecting that. Neither was my vet. She started breathing really heavy which he said was normal, but then she started wobbling and I said, "Is she going to go down?!" He said he hasn't seen a reaction like that in twenty years. She finally settled down and he was able to finish the treatment.
I'll be watching her like a hawk today looking for signs of improvement even though the vet said not to be alarmed if she doesn't show much by tomorrow morning when he'll be back.
If anyone has been through this please tell me your success stories...
