Achilles' tendon help

Echo appears to have injured her Achilles' tendon, limping + tender at mid-portion. I'll take her to the vet tomorrow but I was wondering if anyone has experience with this. Is it so serious I need to crate her until the vet?

Sorry to hear of Echo's injury. I can't say I have experience with this, but if it were my dog I would be making her take it easy. Not necessarily crate-rest, but definitely no running or jumping.

Thanks for the reply, I've been keeping her from excessive exercise as much as possible. She's doing much better, though not liking the no jumping or running.

Also my neighbors seem to be totally unwilling to listen when I ask them not to approach or let her jump, the mailman even gave her a treat while she squirmed in my arms.
