    Default Left Rear Leg Issue

    Yesterday Harold had a great morning at the beach, playing fetch, running around the sand, the usual. Although this is not something we do weekly, this is also not his first. He loves the beach. We got home and he was the same happy, active dog all afternoon and evening. When we got home from dinner to let him out, we noticed that he was not using his left rear leg at all. At first we thought, his leg was just sleeping. That was not the case however. He still cannot put weight on it. What is baffling is that if he had sprained or pulled a muscle at the beach, then we would've seen immediate impact. Per our parents', who are dog owners themselves, and also per our breeder's advice, we will monitor him all day today before going in for his vet appointment tomorrow. We are just wondering if there are some of you out there who could shed some light on our situation....

    This is VERY common w/bulldogs… they seem to never know when to quit!!! I would give it a couple of days and monitor him before taking him to the vets… restrict his activity if need be. For example no jumping on the furniture or stairs. Keep us posted on how he's doing.

    agreed... give it a couple days of restricted activity and maybe crate time --- sometimes if it is a pull or strain it heals up on its own in a few days. If not, then to the vet for a check

    Yes, ^^^ he may have over worked himself. Even though he may not like it, restrict all activity, let him rest for a few days. Hoping he'll be back to himself soon!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    What I was thinking... and what happened to our bully when she was about 3 or 4.. had TPLO surgery, and right has been an issue for last 4 years, but no way we'd put her thru the surgery now.

    We are going to hope and pray he doesn't ever need the surgery.It seems to be worse when he gets up after resting.
