Hello, I am Dr Ola and I would be happy to address your concerns about Bubba. I am so sorry his leg is bothering him! First, if I could get a little bit of information from you.. Any changes in Bubba such as weight loss, decreased energy, decreased eating/drinking? Is Bubba currently on any medications or supplements? How long has the mass on his ankle been present and has it recently changed in color, size, or become more firm? Does Bubba typically jump on/off furniture, run and play or is he very sedentary?
