Hi Sir or Madam,
My name isXXXXX have been working professionally with animals especially dogs in both health and behavioral issues for over 18 years. I have over 14,000 satisfied customers. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.
In order to supply you with the best information, I do need to ask for some additional information. Once I receive your answer, it will likely take me about 30-45 minutes to type up your response. I hope you can be patient.
Can you tell me what testing was done at both the ER and your vet's office?
Did they just x-ray the leg or did they do the spine as well?
Was a CT scan done?
Are you keeping him inactive such as crating him?
Is he not using a leg or limping on one leg?
Is he eating and drinking normally?
Any vomiting or diarrhea?
So he is able to go down the stairs?
How about going up stairs and jumping?
Hi, By the time we got to the animal hospital, the knee went back in place and he was walking ok. So they just examined him. She rotated his leg in every direction and he did not jump, moan or even turn back to look at her. No xrays were done as ligaments would not show.
We have never crated him but do have one which we leave open at all times in the basement. If we try to close it, he goes nuts. We live on a one story home so mainly he is on the one floor but he does go down there to lay on the floor. He is eating ( we made him hamburger & rice) and drinking ( not drinking as much as usual). The vet also examined him and said the ligament was tight and does not believe there is an injury to it. But he said there was inflammation in the leg.
