Customer Question
My 6 year old...

My 6 year old cane corso has just started limping. I think it was a chase the oher night but I’m not sure. Do youhave any ideas.

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

No obvious wound/s. I checked the good leg and the limp one and couldn’t feel anything out of place and I pressed on it with no flinching.

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

Juno

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

She has a huge yard to play in. We both work and so we try our best to be good parents and walk her every day. She is generally a happy and content dog with no whining. She was a bit overweight but has since lost ome weight with food control. Everyone in our fanily love her.

I'm so sorry your question wasn't responded to sooner - experts come on at different times - I just came on and saw your question hasn't been answered-

How is Juno doing? Is she still limping today?

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Beth, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Is she putting a little bit of weight on the affected leg then? Or is she completely holding it up?

Is it a back leg or a front leg that she seems to be limping on?

Is she on any medications right now (or have you given her anything from your medicine cabinet recently)?
