    Default Worried Bully owner

    Hello all, I have a concern. Domino is 5 months old and recently started limping. I noticed he favors his right hind leg but he never whimpers. I even notice him walking and his back just drop to the floor. I took him to the vet and they said they could not see anything. I'm trying Ibuprofen and keeping him in his crate. I guess the next step would be to get a x ray. But isn't 5 month to soon for hip dysplasia?

    No ibuprofin!!! It is toxic to dog. He can have low dose (baby) asprin to help him with the pain and inflammation.

    Hey sorry for the abrupt post above. Just wanted to get that out there while you were online. I'm sorry that your baby is limping. I believe the low dose asprin is 81mg. (1 capsule) for every 10 pounds.

    Goob would have random limps as a puppy but we attributed it to growing pains or strains. We now have him on a joint supplement that many of us on this site use called Nujoint. I would check out the Nuvet website and take a look at their product. It's really great! How long has the limp been happening?

    NO IBUPROFIN… Bullies do have a tendency to limp, especially at that age. I would restrict his movement and give him a few days… he should be just fine.

    OMG, I don't want to alarm you but DO NOT give Tylenol or Ibuprofen ever! Low dose aspirin for pain. Call your vet for correct dosage for you pups weight.

    Welcome to EBN.

    My puppy was limping at that age. He was doing rough play with the neighbor's dog and was limping then next two days. I was very concerned like you. Went to see the vet and he was given non steroidical anti inflammatory - nsaids. He was ok after 2 days.

    Give him rest. He will be fine in no time. BTW, please post pics of Domino. We like to see bully pics in this site.

    I first noticed it about 2 weeks ago. He never jumps on or off furniture, but he would chase my teenage son up and down stairs. I'm wondering if he took a spill down the carpeted stairs. I wish I knew.

    My pup jovi had turned 1 and a few days after her birthday she started limping. It was about two week that I had been finally like okay what's wrong? Anyways her limping was on her right leg, after two weeks she was limping on her left leg which was odd. 2 and a half weeks later jovi couldn't stand up. I panicked and rushed her to the e.r where they said she was find and sent me home after paying a huge bill. My baby couldn't walk so I took her to a second opinion and they referred me to get her to another vet so off we went to our third vet.. Did X-rays and come to find out she has hip displaysia and two torn ligaments. If this doesn't clear up and you don't see improvement I would bring her to your vet.
