Customer Question
months ago she jumped on...
I have a 12 year old toy poodle, approx 5 pds. Several months ago she jumped on couch , started yelping and would not walk on rt front leg. Took to vet, examined and X-ray, said must be sprain or muscle and gave pain meds. She was fine after 24 hrs. Has happened again 4-5 times over last few months and went away in a day with pain meds. She did this again over a week ago and is still not walking on rt front leg, holding up. Pain meds did not work and its been a week. Should I take her to vet or what?

Hello,

Yes, absolutely worth the recheck vet visit with any vet today.

Before, we easily could have suspected she was just exacerbating some underlying arthritic disease or other soft tissue trauma.

Now, it could a more serious injury. Worth the recheck. In addition, notsure what they prescribed. It would have been either a true pain medication like Tramadol or Gabapentin, or it was a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug like metacam, rimadyl or deramaxx. So, if it was a NSAID, you'll want pain medicine. If it was only pain medication, then you'll definitely want to get some type of anti-inflammatory as well.

Good Luck!

Dr. Andy
