Poor guy, just can't seem to catch a break right now.

    NUTS!!!! Keep him crated or confine him to a room where he can not jump or do steps. less activity the better.

    Poor Frank and y'all too [replacer_img] This happened to Cami 3 months ago.
    Same treatment too, I did not let her run (leashed her going potty,
    no chicken poo dance, no jumping on/off furniture completely. Took
    TWO full months before no limping. Hang in there~Hugs!

    Thanks everybody for the suggestions and well wishes! Yeah, it is not the best situation, but really, after what he just went through, it seems like something we can handle. Just a lot of being careful. We have our furniture blocked off so he can't jump on it, we are going to crate him or put him in a room where he just has a bed and nothing to jump on when we have to leave. Definitely leashed for potty since he will sometimes go leaping after deer in our yard. Lots of rest and recovery for a while.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!
