Customer Question
Spontaneous limping then.gave 75...

Spontaneous limping then.gave 75 mg of carprofen no noticeable side affects but noticed increased labored breathing

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

50-55 lb border collie mix

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

Yes, no wound or even moving away when feeling all of her limbs. I think it is her right front but I am not 100% sure

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know what to do. What is the collie's name and age?

Zona and she is 4.5 y/o

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

She tore a ligament in her L leg when she was a puppy and I think there is a possible bony growth/mass on her medial L mid-distal femur
