Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am wondering if the lameness and the hiding are related or if she is not feeling well in addition to being sore.

Is this a front or hindleg?

Is she holding the leg up? Willing to put weight on it?

He is not holding the leg up. I took him for a walk just now and he seems to be walking normally
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 5 months ago

Okay.

So problem solved? :)

Sounds good.

IF any other signs surface today please let me know
