Customer Question
We've had X-rays taken...

We've had X-rays taken before and know that my 2 year old dog has arthritis in his right rear knee. We don't yet know if he has torn his CCrL, there are no definite signs, yesterday and today he's been limping pretty severly but doesn't show any discomfort until you touch his paw.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No wound we can see

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Henry

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Henry?

He's an American Bulldog mix that came from a shelter, we adopted him approximately 2 months ago, he weighs about 80 pounds and is active

We've had X-rays taken of his hips and knees on both sides, his hips look great, and just the right knee is showing arthritis, always concerning in a 2 year old dog. He shows no signs of pain or discomfort when manipulating his leg

When did your dog injure his leg?

Is it consistently the same leg?

Does your dog put any weight on the affected leg?
