Customer Question
She is limping on...

She is limping on three legs. She is 11 years old, an English Springer Spaniel and weighs about 60 pounds.

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

I don't see any injury. I think it's arthritis. I got her an orthopedic bed.

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

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Which leg seems to affect her the most? How long has this been going on for?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Left hind leg. Has been bothering her about ten days. I'd like to know if I can give her asperin for pain and how much.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Alleyne, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

How much does she weigh? If she has had a serious injury with the left hindlimb then the aspirin may not be enough for pain relief
