    Default Help puppy limping!!

    Bubba took a 2 hour long nap and when he woke up he was limping. He doesnt want to put weight in his back right paw and i dont knoe what happend! He lets me touch it and massage it but he has been limping since 4:30pm and its 9pm he went for a second nap and when he woke up same thing. Do u guys think his leg is sleep? Its been a long time thou but he doesnt complain when i touch it or move it. Im calling the vet tomorrow but im worried... He is 10 months if that helps!! I love my baby i hate thinking that he might be in pain!

    I had something like this with Leon, we took him to the vets 2 minute exam 24 lighter all he said was less walking and if it stays the same after two weeks come back for X-rays.
    So we went back to the breeder first after two weeks took one look at Leon clipped his nails and the limping was no more.
    Morale to the story there doesn't have to be anything wrong it can be something simple and if possible contact your breeder they might have more experience than the vet with bulldogs


    Leon is echt en dikke boefje !!!

    Sometimes it might just be growing pains. My boy was limping on his left front leg and we immediately went to a vet orthopedic. 2 xrays and 200€ later the vet said he wants to operate Bifi in a month. We contacted the breeder, sent her what the ortho emailed us and she said to let him rest for 3-4 weeks. 4 weeks later he was good as new (although we did send the xray to a bulldog specialist in Holland).

    I agree… or sometimes they just pull a muscle for some reason. Always a good idea to get an x-ray if it doesn't improve in a couple of days.

    That can happen when they are growing, and it is either sleeping on it wrong or growing pains. As long as they get better in a day or two they are fine.
