Hello, I am talk to Nicole and I would be happy to help you with your question. I'm so sorry to hear about your pet. I am working on a response I will be back shortly.
Ask Your Own Pet Question
there could be a couple things going on. If he is not limping than he could have just strained his leg and it was hurting most immediately when he came in the house but not enough to be limping constantly. Or some dogs will have back pain and obviously will not limp because they didn't hurt a specific leg but have stress on their back when they go up the stairs or try to jump onto things.

My suggestion would be to keep him quiet and resting tonight. I also would not do any excessive activity for the next few days just to make sure that all is going well. If you feel like he is not better tomorrow or worse you certainly can message me if you have any questions. I don't know if you have any pain medication from when he had his surgery or not but it would be fine if you gave him one of his anti-inflammatories. I hope that helps please let me know if you have any additional questions.

He only yelps when he is pushing very hard off that back leg. Probably best to limit his activity and going up and down the stairs?

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
