Intermittent limping

Post by Pauline82 on Mon Sep 26 2016, 15:24

Hi Guys,
Bruno has just turned 5, every time after off lead exercise or chasing his ball he is limping really badly and won't weight bear on his left hind leg. This last for a full day and then he seems to be ok, however it's getting more and more frequent. I'm taking him to the vets next Monday earliest appointment. Any idea what it maybe? Or what I could give him to help with the pain x

i'm sure your vet will get to the bottom of it,try and take a video of him when he's doing it and show your vet,may be until you can see your vet keep to lead walks,let us know how he gets on Smile

Definitely good idea to get it checked. Earlier the better, Herbie has had op on front leg for dysplasia and back leg for floating kneecap before 18 months, so you are doing the right thing, good luck and keep us posted!
