How was arthritis in her right hind diagnosed? Did she have xrays?
My Vet diagnosed through experience when she was quite young that her right back leg was stiff and would 'probably' get arthritis in it.
No - she has not had x-rays but all other tests , eg'. movement, feeling / exercising the joints, the diagnosis was arthritis.
She only has problem with the right back leg, all other legs are fine.
How old is your girl and approximately how heavy?
She is 15 years 10 months approx. , she is a rescue dog so not 100% certain of age.
Realise she has had life, but don't want to let go unnecessarily as you can appreciate.
Is any specific joint the most affected? (e.g. the knee, hip etc)
Right back leg, limps from what seems to be the hip down the leg.
Her paw bends backwards sometimes and she slow to strighten it, maybe 15seconds.
