    Default Boris is limping

    Hi All,

    I noticed this morning when I got up to get ready for work that Boris is limping pretty badly with his front right leg. He scurried over quickly for food, but I could tell something was bothering him. We know his rear hips are garbage, but were told his front hips look good when we had him tested for HD. I'm going to give it a couple days before I bring him into the Vet. Really hoping he didn't hurt himself running hot laps around the house after we gave him a bath

    Any recommendations? We have him in his thundershirt to keep him mellowed out, but am not sure if I should give him anything to help.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Yes.... keep him calm and only leashed exercise (short walks) if possible. Is there any swelling on the leg at all?

    There is no swelling that I can see or feel. I've been unable to get any sort of reaction from him when I put pressure on different parts of his leg and shoulder.

    Give it 3 days of rest, if he does not show any signs of getting better then make a vet appointment. he does put the paw on the floor and walk on it, right? just limping?

    Agree, give it about 3 days or so to see if you notice any improvement. He may have just pulled a muscle or something. Warm compresses do well, but keep them short, bc they can get hot depending on what you use. And some soft massaging of the area too

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Yeah he's stepping on his paw and applying weight, but you can tell its not comfortable for him.

    I hope it is nothing serious. You also might want to limit his activity as well. Of course I am a couple of days late to this dance....I hope he is better now.

    Yeah we've been limiting his activity a bunch and hes improved quite a bit but still has a small limp. Our friend that's a Vet came by and thinks he may have bruised a muscle or pulled one. She said to limit his activity and watch him close for a few more days before we go in and gave us some pain killers.

    Vader got a limp on his right front leg. We are battling a mange spot on his head and it was time for a check up at the vet.
    Couple of days held out of daycare, pain relief liquid, couple of days, much better. No limp... Now if I could get his spots to clear up...

    Glad Boris is improving, definitely think he'll be good in a few days with rest & limited activity!
