Hi! Long time lurker and first time needing some help We have a 5 year old British bulldog and he has always been an active boy. 2 months ago he started limping on his front left shoulder and it didn’t go away within a few days so we went to the vet and were prescribed anti inflammatory meloxicam for 7 days. It worked a treat and within hours after first dose he was walking around as normal. A few days after the first round ran out he was limping again and cried/yelped in pain and trembling. Back to the vets for an X-ray and exam which they found nothing and even sent to a specialist who also couldn’t see anything. Prescribed a months worth of meloxicam again with the vet thinking it was a soft tissue injury that hasn’t healed. He also said that he has lost weight and has lost a lot of muscle on his front left shoulder. All was going well and then the month ran out and he started limping again. We got some more meloxicam and now a few days later there is a limp on his back left leg. He’s moving really slowly. Totally at a loss as to what could be going on and hate seeing our boy like this. He’s eating, drinking and keen to go for walks. The limping is on and off but worse when he just gets up. The vet has said an MRI may or may not find anything and our boy was absolutely traumatised by the aneasthetic from the X-rays so we’re not sure what to do as he gets really stressed and don’t think he would cope with going through much more. Wondering if anyone else has experienced anything like this? The only other thing that comes to mind is Over the last 2 years he had kennel cough and then a really nasty skin infection but both went away with vet treatment. Please help We’re so worried and just want him to be happy again.
