    If it makes you feel happier than go and see the bully vet that you mentioned. If he mentions anything different from the first vet then it might be useful ... I'm so sorry I can't be of any help!!

    Poor gator. hope he feels better soon, when Buddy boy was younger (under a year old) he would start limping sometimes when he would get up from a nap and he finally grew out of it. So I'm hoping it is nothing serious and Gator will grow out of it. We will keep him in our prayers it is nothing serious.

    Thank you guys...inside my gut I feel like it is something that might pass because he has been going thru a bit of a growth spurt (out, not up). BUT my bully mama worry wart syndrome won't let me relax about it. I spoke with my husband about it again tonight. I will probably call the bully vet on Tuesday when everything opens up and try to get him in. I figure a $50 visit might be worth it's weight in gold...or it might not. lol I got the distinct impression from the ortho that if it isn't an ortho problem, it can be very difficult to figure out the problem and if we do, then it will be very difficult to treat if it can even be treated. He did rule out a few things for us. He knows it isn't a bone issue from the x-rays. Also ruled out any kind of infection due to the fact that there has been no fever, he is not lethargic, he WANTS to play and he is eating/drinking/pee/poo normally. He did list some sort of spinal or spinal fluid issue, muscle or nerve problem or a possible tumor. I worry because he has weakness and pain and not necessarily like a pulled muscle or strain. Ugh....who knows!

    I just wanted to say
    I would be worried, too!

    Hopefully the bully specialty vet will have some new insight for you & Gator.

    I am going through some health issues, and while it's nice to have everything ruled out, it's also really frustrating when you don't get any answers or solutions!

    My Meilyr has that little motion with his rear leg. It kind of looks like a little pirate leg. I occasionaly see him not put too much weight on it but then he's ok. I would probably try to see a vet that specializes in the breed as well. Just to be on the safe side. I hope Gatoray will start to feel better so he can continue his active life.
