I have actually had some experience in this. My black lab had a tear of her Achilles tendon when she was very young, around a year old. We took xrays and we couldn't see much. My vet ended up referring us to a surgical center where she had to have surgery to fix it eventually. It was very expensive, but we did end up resting her for weeks prior to see if it would help and it didn't. She was just running around outside and must have slipped or something and tore it. Best of luck to you.
