Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. I do have a couple of questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.
Did your vet take any x-rays of the limb?
Did they mention any specific area that seems painful to him?
No problem. I would expect a muscle sprain to start getting better by now. I would be more concerned about a ligament, tendon or joint injury. I would at least pursue a consult from a surgeon, even if you decide to not proceed with surgery. Hope this helps.
