He is as ten year old pit lab mix. He was playing fetch

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name and age?

He Max. He's ten.

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

Max.

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

Yes.when he runs he's fine. He limps what when he walks and he favors his left leg when he sits. We've had to keep him from the steps to the second floor.

Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.

I am sorry your question was not picked up sooner.

Is this the back leg?

When the dog sits does the leg bend as normal or does it stay out kind of straight?
