    Default a tad scared for our vet visit tomorrow :(

    Tank started limping again and im really worried this time around. when he was younger he got scared and fell off the porch and he stretched his acl and a few other things in his back leg. I noticed last night that he was limping and we decided to keep a eye on it and not call the vet right away. well when he woke up this morning i noticed the limp was a lot worse and now he isn't bending that leg when we walks on it. hes still walking on it and still trying to chase the cats. just hes really REALLY favoring that leg. last time he wasn't limping like this and it was popping. this time no popping which im guessing is good..

    has anyone had experience with this??? we see the vet at 10:15 in the morning

    How did the vet visit go?

    My boy had two ACL surgeries....but, when he torn his, he would not bend the leg or put the paw down.

    well to add to it i just noticed that tank has greenish yellow stuff around his private area..... sigh now im wondering if he also has a infection or is this sometimes normal for unfixed males that tend to get "excited" real easily? is it possible it got irritated by something on the floor? not my day

    Is it the opening for his 'boy'? Nitschke use to have that before we knew he was allergic to rice... see what the vet says when you take him tomorrow.

    hope its just his allergies then. we recently found out he has a grain allergy and just put him on a new food 2 weeks ago so maybe his body is still dealing with the allergy? i know my kids tend to slip him their food when they dont want to eat it which we are working on. i know he is still rashed pretty bad but i know that can take a bit to go away with food allergies. sure didnt expect this!

    Im really worried about him

    He'll be fine.. you are doing what you need to. Keep him calm with little activity till you know for sure what the issue is with his leg. As for the allergies, have you done a full screen blood work for allergies - so you know all his allergens? it will help you know what not to give him.
