    Default Help! My dog is limping and has some lumps on his leg!

    I came home from work today and I saw this. I don't what this is but he's limping on his right leg and I don't like it at all!! Poor guy....plus tomorrow is Sunday and clinic is closed. He has to wait Monday...Is there anyway I can do right now to fix this? Can I give him pain reliever pills?? =/

    Oh my goodness! He had none of this when you left? Poor baby! Be very careful what you give him him..I will research it and come back and tell you. The skin problems I can't help with..but I will tag some others to see this.

    Ok..dogs can have aspirin...but NO ibuprofen or Tylenol..the dosage depended on his weight. Baby aspirin is ok too!

    Oh my poor guy!!! well shoot!!! Is there no emergency vet? If that was not there when you left I have no ideas except that he got bit by something. Dang I hate it when it happens on weekends! I would pour peroxide on it was it with antibacterial soap but I don't know if it will help.

    I'm going to look up and see of there is. For now I cleaned it with chlorhexidine 3% pads and used peroxide. Anything you guys recommend let me know and I can go shopping tomorrow morning.

    No, I would not give aspirin (when needed, use uncoated) as it might mask
    signs the vet needs to access what might be wrong. I know it's hard to NOT
    treat them. If he's showing signs of strong pain he needs to go to ER Vet.

    Hopefully he pulled something or sprained his leg, very common and he needs
    to be crated & keep quiet, no play, no walks, no jumping...for at least a week.
    Then see if still limping, if so more crate rest other than potty breaks & feeding.
    If limping is worst after a week of crate rest or again, showing signs of pain then
    off to Vet. If limp clears up but returns later, go to Vet.

    Not sure what the scrapes/lumps are unless he was rubbing the leg against stuff.
    Does he seem itchy?...if so give Benydryl capsules (generic is fine) 1mg per 1 lb of
    weight, they are usually 25 mg capsules or tablets so a 25 lb dog would get 1 pill,
    50 lb dog, 2 pills...every 6-8 hrs if really itchy & hived up otherwise I give it every
    10-12 hrs (like for allergy symptoms).

    Let us know how it goes, will pray for y'all that it's just a sore leg & rest will cure.

    No, he's not showing any signs of pain? When I came home I tried my best to treat his leg. Right after that he was eating dinner and knocked out(sleep) for the rest of the day.

    If he's not hurting..don't give him the aspirin. Treat the skin problems the best you can. Peroxide will never hurt..and maybe some antibiotic cream..neosporin or the like. Carol is right..keep him calm until he can see the vet. It's encouraging if he's not in pain.

    Then I'd crate him and keep him crated until not limping for 3 or 4 days.

    Unless those abrasions spread, get red, oozy or warm, just keep clean
    and do what you're doing (all the Vet would've done) just be alert for
    any changes in limping or abrasions. Hopefully all will clear up just fine.

    GOD bless!

    im wondering if he didnt sit on it and spin around like sarah used to. when she was itchy she would sit down on her leg and spin around and rub the hair off of it and it would be so red. i dont think she ever limped though. i would keep with the chlorhexadine and if he is in pain some low dose aspirin can be given and it might help the limping if he is still limping today as its an anti inflamatory to. keep us updated.
