My 3yr old African Boerboel was given a steroid injected in her back hind leg for itching, the leg began to shake right after causing me to ask if that was normal. Then in March a patch of discolored hair showed up on the injection site and she began to limp, its just gotten worse and worse. I can't find anything of this issue in dogs just humans. I took her for a second opinion and was told the muscle
is gone! Have you had this issue come up before? What should I do? She has a long life ahead of her!!
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
Customer: No wound in the foot the problem is the leg
JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. What is the dog's name?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sheena?
Customer: Sheeja, no just this major issue. The dog has had no injury just that shot.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
