    Default Puppy Limping

    Okay so i know I should be gronded for not checking in, as it has been awile since i have logged in. I know, I know, but I just noticed this evening that my baby Cash is favoring his back right leg. He is exactly 24 weeks old tomorrow. It is like he doesn't want to put pressure on it. I messaged it and felt all over and he doesn't act like he is in pain or squirm or anything, but still he is out right limping when I call him to come. I also checked his paw, and I don't see any swelling at all. At first I thought maybe his leg was asleep. He is currently asleep right now. I am worried.

    Cash's Mommy, Allison

    I'm sure you're very worried. It could be a lot of things..some serious and some not. The only thing to do is take him to the vet. They can do Xrays and whatever tests are needed. In the meantime..it's good to just try and stay calm and keep
    him from overexerting and putting more stress on his leg. Please let us know. And no worries about not checking in...real life happens. We are here and hope Cash is okay.

    Yeah, Thanks so much! I am going to pray that it is something minor, but you just never know. When I get back from the vet tomorrow I will make sure I post an update. Thanks again!

    @asimpson.... I agree with @JAKEISGREAT, it could be a number of things. Try to keep him and yourself calm and see how he is in the morning. If still favoring/limping take call your vet and get him checked out.

    We are leaving in about 15 min to go to the vet. This morning he is not nearly as bad as he was last night. He is putting pressure on it, and it doesn't seem as bad, but still limping.
    I will give everyone an update as soon as I get back from the vet. I pray it is just growing pains.

    Is he a hyperactive puppy? He might have injured or torn his cruciate ligament. Or it could be another thing like his knee cap sliping out of place. Try to restrict his activity and do leash walks only. Dont let him run around on it. Best of luck and please keep us posted! Give him a hug for me!

    The vet gave me someanti-inflammatory medicine (Rimadyl 75mg) and instructed me to give Cash a half a tablet every twelve hours. The vet believes that Cash could have a sprain in his knee. He examined both knees and said that he has elasiticy is both knees. On Monday I will be getting a call from his vet to see if he is still limping. If the limping has not improved or seems worse, then I will take him back and have X-Rays done. Cash has started to put more pressure on the leg everytime he gets up to eat/drink and go to the bathroom. The plan is to give Cash his medicine and pray it is not the alternative which is a torn ACL. I will continue to give Cash his medicine and hope it isnít his ACL.I will be spending all day with my baby tomorrow, pampering him to the fullest. I wish I could trade him places.

    He was pretty hyperactive during the day and then that night he was carrying his back foot and didn't want to put any pressure on it what so ever. Today he has been doing much better and I have been keeping him quiet all day and he is sleeping alot from the anti-inflamatory that the vet has instructed me to give him. I will most definately give him a hug from you! Thanks for your sweet comments and suggestions.

    Thanks for the update! You'd be surprised how many folks post frantic my-dog-is-sick messages and then don't update. That's hard on us addicts around here. *snork*
