    Default Limping Puppy

    This issue brought me to the forum

    Saturday morning one of our puppies was favoring his rear right leg, he would not put any weight on it all weekend. We went to the vet this morning for an exam & xrays and upon fearing the worst I got the best news possible. The vet says it is a soft tissue sprain or strain and he should be better in a few days to a week and gave him an anti-inflammatory to help.

    The xrays showed NO signs of dysplasia! His right hip, the one he was favoring, was perfect and his left hip looks iffy for any other breed but ok for a bulldog. So wish us a full recovery.

    If anyone needs a vet in Central Virginia please let me know because ours has been great for us!

    That's great news, so glad it's just a soft tissue injury. That's the kind of news you like to hear.

    yes agree good news.. what kind of anti inflammatory did you give? I am asking because duke did the same thing last week. I called the vet he said to watch for 48 hours and we did and he seems fine now but would have liked to give him something for pain if possible .. just curious

    and my God how CUTE!!!
