    Default My dog is Limping !

    So, I woke up this morning, and Maximus was lying on the floor ..... next thing I know he stands up and is unable to walk. His back <L> leg he lifts off the ground and is hobbling along on 3 legs. OMG ! WHAT on earth happened ! Should I rush him to the vet? or maybe he just slept wrong on his leg, or it's just stiff, or I don't know what to do here .............

    How old is he? Was he playing rough before it happened or was he sleeping?
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Harley did this a few weeks ago, could not stand, swaying on back legs and limping.....he had been putting alot of pressure on them when he had his tail infection and wouldnt move! Soo I just kept an eye on him and by the 4th day he was recouping, he was soo stiff to. I got him the CoseQuin DS Plus ONLINE at COSTCO same as the vet but much much cheaper! 2, 180 ct for $80.00! The vet was 140.00 for 1 bottle! It really seems to be helping. Another thing i checked on harley was his toes, sure enough, it was read and some cysts, it was also painful to the touch. I did some reading on this sight about interdigital cyst and found a GEM....Povidone Iodine! There is a video on this site and You Tube. I have a read link I'll re-post. Hope Maximus feels better, let us know.

    @Maximus

    Hey check out this link and try Povidone-Iodine! and there is a video for it on the Bulldogs News, look for it in inter-digital cysts! I highly suggest the video!http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-kar...b_1651994.html ...The video is great, let me know if you cant find it or you tube it. I did it for Harley the other day and what a difference! Although they were not so bad, i could tell they bothered him. Let us know how things work out for your sweet boy.

    Hello,
    I took Max to the Vet, and he has a strain/sprain/ligament tear in his <L> back leg. He is on antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and pain medication. Plus, he has an ear infection and a skin infection. I have to call the Vet in 3-days to let him know if Max is feeling/doing any better. Right now he is resting quietly, but panting heavily.
    I think he is uncomfortable. He had his first dose of the anti-inflammatories for the day. Wish me luck. thanks to all of you for your care and concern.

    Poor Maximus, doesn't take much for them to do this type of injury. You are right, the panting is due to pain/discomfort. Keep him calm and spoiled... He will be fine in no time.

    I've heard that pain meds are a catch 22 with dogs. If they aren't in some pain, they won't stay off that leg and could cause more damage. Try and get some rest and stay off it.

    It appears Max has damaged his ACL and surgery is indicated. He is staying put and not really ambulating at all and when he stands up he is lifting that leg off the ground ---
    he sees the Orthopedic surgeon on December 12th so he will be on pain medication and anti-inflammatories until then.

    I'm very sorry to read this about Max, Time to time my boys will wake up from a nap favoring a leg, I've learned now that the leg falls asleep on them, But I do keep a close eye on them just in case. These guys are so much like children without a voice it isn't funny! I wonder how Max tore his ACL, thats a sports injury usually. You and Max are in thoughts and prayers, Wishing a speedy recovery for Max.
