I am sorry to hear about Bo's being painful near his shoulder. Did this just happen?

Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

Is he limping on the leg at all?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
no not really it happend one other time. My son has a puppy almost a year that plays with Bo and will sometimes jumped on that area. I'm wondering if something happened. I gave him Arnica and was going to rub the lotion on him too.
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

It would be safe to try the Arnica, but make sure he does not lick and swallow a lot of it.

If this persists, I would have his shoulder X-rayed. There are shoulder conditions seen in this breed.
