    Thanks everyone! Mayhem did fine last night and we had no indications that things weren't normal. However, this morning he is limping slightly. Can dogs get like "charlie horses"? I almost wonder if it was some type of severe muscle cramp during his sleep yesterday and now the muscle is tight and sore? I am just baffled by all of this, but I do appreciate all of your kind words and support

    I agree… poor Mayhem, I hope they can figure out what is going on w/him soon!!! This must be so frustrating for you…

    I do too!!!! His limp is worse when he has been laying down for a while. Poor baby! I will monitor him today and if it gets worse, I guess we will go to the vet again tomorrow. I just know that he is tired of being poked and prodded.

    I would certainly think that dogs can get leg cramps. I get them alot-and my muscles are sore for days afterwards. I have been told that low magnesium/potassium can be the cause, but I also think it is hereditary, as others in my fam. get them. Maybe some of the meds he is on ? Look up on internet?

    I don't know about Charlie horses....but when Vegas has a violent seizure, he limps for days. His muscles are over tensed during the episodes and little boy is so sore days after.

    I took this video of Mayhem limping. He is "favoring" his left front leg. What do you guys think?

    Looks like a muscle/tissue injury to me. See if your vet can prescribe a mild pain reliever for him. Tramadol or Rimadyl

    Can you check out his paw? It looks like he doesn't want to put the paw down at all. If you feel all over his leg and shoulder area is he showing any discomfort? To me it looks like the paw itself.

    I have Rimadyl here at home, but he can't take it with the steroids. I just spoke with the vet and they said I could come by and pick up some Tramadol.

    I have examined his paw and can see nothing wrong. I also have rubbed/massaged his entire leg and hip and he doesn't flinch or indicate pain in any way.

    I would pick up the medicine and try to keep him quiet for a couple of days. It breaks my heart to do it but when bruty isn't feeling well I put him in his crate and only let him out for a bit of loving and then back to crate to heal.
