    Default Need some opinions on this video

    on lex walking. As several of u know a few weeks ago we came home( gone 24 hrs) to lex not putting any pressure on his back leg. Well he started getting better but was just stiff. That Thurs it seemed like he didn't have any control of his back legs, very wobbly and couldn't walk straight. So we went to vet on fri and he said it wasn't anything nureo wrong w him. He gave us some antiflammatory med and glucosamine. He wanted us to wait and see how he does on that and if he's still bad bring him back and he will sedate him some and do x rays to See if its his joints. It'll be 2 weeks fri since we went to vet, he is acting like his self running playing but I see him still wobbly alittle and seems like he doesn't have full range I motion in back leg. Jeff thinks he is fine. Please give me all yalls honest input!

    since he is starting to act back to normal. I would continue to watch him. Ideally he should continue to get better everyday. If he starts taking a turn backwards, then go to the vet. Also until he is back to 100%, don't let him get over excited, it may harm what he damaged to begin with.

    Its difficult to tell TBH he does look a little unsteady but he isnt limping, which is a bonus. I couldnt make my mind up if he wasnt just concious that you were following him with the camera and maybe a bit nervous wondering why.
    Love that squishy face though

    He is so darn cute, I really didn't notice a concern, but you know him best. Go with your gut.

    He seems to be walking OK, just looks like he is a little stiff. I would give it a few days to see how he does. He's such a handsome boy though.

    I'll be honest ... he seemed ok to me but then again I don't see him walking on a daily basis. I would go with your instinct on this. Whatever he did to his legs it was obviously pretty bad so it's gonna take a while to heal too. Maybe two weeks isn't long enough for the whole healing process so you may need to give it a little longer before you feel he's back to 100%!!

    First of all, just have to say that Lex has the cutest squishy face! I didn't really notice anything hugely out of the ordinary from how bullies walk, but like others said, you know him best. Definitely go with your gut and if you want him checked out again for your own peace of mind, go for it. When you got him checked out first, did the vet do a whole range of motion test on his legs?

    Ok I'm glad I'm not the only one seeing that he is stiff in one leg. He will be 2 the first of February.Vet wants him to loose 5 lbs. we had him on blue wilderness and he wants us to go to a grain free w less protein. And we are trying to find the right food now. We are fixin to start switching him to tftw if they have it in chicken flavor. When we left, the sitter had fed him the wrong food sat and sun and left food out for him it looked like he gained 10 lbs! When I took him to vet he weighed 70 but I just weighed him and he's at 70 but just got done eating an drinking and i know he had lost that weight. Lol
    @Biogirl71 yes he did range of motion and nuro, he said its hard to tell w range where he is hurting cause he wasn't showing any pain!
