Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi! My name is***** and I am a small animal veterinarian. I am reviewing your question to formulate an answer. Do you mind answering a few more questions so I can get a better history on Trixie?
Could you please tell me when the limp started? Which leg was painful? Did the veterinarian indicate what joint the torn ligament was associated with? How was she moving that caused you to notice the limp?
You mentioned that she may have eaten something she wasn't supposed to...do you know what this could have been? Human food, toxin, bone, other foreign material? When do you think she ate this?
Has Trixie shown any other symptoms, vomiting/diarrhea, change in energy level or appetite?
Is Trixie up to date on vaccines? If yes when was her last vaccine?
