Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How long has he been doing this?

Do you think he is putting any more weight on it now as opposed to when this first started?

Any swellings, soreness, or resistance to flexing/extending at any of his joints?

Any tenderness, boney instability or crunching along the leg?
