A month ago I took her to the dog park. She played and ran
A month ago I took her to the dog park. She played and ran just fine, kept fetching the ball for me to throw. She is an 80 pound pittbull. I got her home and she started limping. Putting intermittent weight baring on her back left leg. She only limped for about 2-3 days. I let it heal for a month and just took her on walks. She plays and jumps around with my other two small dogs just fine. Yesterday (after a month of no dog park to give it ample time to heal) I took her to the dog park and she was running, playing, and fetching the ball just fine... Then when I got her home she started limping on that same leg again. She had some Tramadol left from the last time so I have her some of that. I don't know what could be causing this. Tonight I gave her 300 mg of Gabapentin and 50 mg of Tramadol and I'm hoping that gives her some pain relief, as I did my research on the two and that they can be administered simultaneously. I don't know why she waits until she gets home to limp. I'm thinking she sprained her hip last month and the dog park just reinjured it. I felt her foot and her knee and moved them and it didn't bother her, and she seemed to love it when I massaged her hip, making these noises that sounded like I was relieving some pain. She loves the dog park, so I know not being able to go is making her pretty down in the dumps. She is only 4 years and 3 months old, and very muscular, so it's not old age or being out of shape or anything like that. I want her to be happy and its ripping my heart out seeing her sad face. How should I accommodate her hip pain (besides meds, since I have the medicine part covered)?JA: IÂ'm sorry to hear that.

Madge is my 14year old black Lab. She has, up till now, been healthy with just age related aches and pains. In the last 6months she has had difficulty holding her bowels and as soon as she gets up to go out she involuntarily 'goes'. We now have a change in that she fouls her bed during the night and appears not to have noticed. She is still eating but her interest in anything else is very diminished. Don't want to put her through anything that distresses her but am pretty worried. Are we nearing her time?

I have a female Akita who will be 8 years old. Once in awhile she will start to wimper and cry as thought she is in pain. During this time she seems to try and lay down or sit down but she is unable to dur to the pain. She just cannot get comfortable for several minutes, during which time she is panting. Today I noticed that just after having abowel movement she yelp unpon completion and shortly there after she was fine again. She doesn't have much staminia and she just like to lay down the entire day. Have any ideas?

Customer: We have an almost 13-year-old male American Eskimo. About a week ago, he stopped jumping up, when that's something he's always loved to do. He hasn't had any changes or difficulty in eating, drinking, or going to the bathroom. We took him to the emergency vet yesterday and they weren't able to find anything wrong with him, aside from possibly a slight bruise on one of the pads on his back right paw. Now, though, the dog is staggering a tiny bit when he walks and seems a bit weak overall. He's having difficulty getting up after lying down for extended periods of time, he's shaking every so often, and he'll walk into his bed and just stand there without lying down for quite some time. Again, the veterinarian didn't find anything wrong with him, so could this just be a sprain or something and the pain is causing the shaking, etc.? JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: (Sorry about that. I hit enter and it submitted the first part when I wasn't done giving you all of the information. The second part covers everything.) JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $19) to post your type of question to Dog Veterinary Experts (you only pay if satisfied).
