I am sorry to hear about this concern.
Based on your vet's exam - did they believe it to be muscular?
They said that the blood flow had been interrupted and there is nothing pointing to anything being damaged
How was that diagnosed?
That can not be diagnosed via x-ray - it is impossible.
Blood flow can not be evaluated on x-ray.
that is all they told me. my daughter had to drop him off - i was work. I got to him about 1 hour after she did
I would call them again - as this is likely a communication issue.
More commonly this is muscle pain that improves with time.
Unless there was a strangulating issue of the legs, the blood flow would be hard to compromise.
he has indentions on his waist (i guess that would be the area) right before the leg joint. Deep ones. They look better today, a lot better.
Because the blood vessels, the main ones are deep - this is uncommon to be a blood supply issue thatwould give long term issues due to good collateral support.
Nurse just told me they did a physical exam - feeling
so basically - give it some time?
Yes - there is no "antidote" for this and typically it is time and pain medication as needed, along with rest.
