Deebo has developed a pretty bad limp, at first I thought it was his front left leg so I stopped walking him for a few days and then I took him out for a walk down at the park.
He was very happy running around with no problem but then when we started walking home the limp was back but this time I could clearly see it was his rear back left leg.
I completely stopped walking him for a week and have been feeding him Glucosamine MSR and condroitn with some fish oil. And he still cant fully put weight on it so I took him to the vet fearing it may be something bad.
The vet examined him and gave him a couple of shots which one was an antiflammatory pain killer and another to help lubricate and protect his joints which is the first 1 of of 4 shots. She said it might be because he is growing rapidly and he may have had growing pains and on top of that hurt himself running around. She gave me some Rimadyl to take home and told me to rest him and if the limp goes on for another week we will get him xrayed for all the nasty things it could be, which I really really hope its nothing bad cause of his young age.
I've stopped exercise for now and with the rimadyl he seems alot better but I can still tell his leg still hurts. He still gets excited and bounds around like nothings wrong and have to tell him off. I feel really sorry for him he must be so bored.
