    Default Post Op - Now Limping

    I wonder if anyone could help me with some thought.

    Geoff had the snip last Monday. Since then I have noticed that he is limping and favouring his front right leg.

    The only thing that has changed, that I can think of since then, is that he will now go down stairs (very carefully) which he would not do before and that I wish he wouldn't do as he did a wee on my son's carpet, but that is another story.

    Otherwise he hasn't jumped or fallen that I am aware of.

    I have checked his paw and felt up his leg. No yelps of any sort. But he has a definite limp. It is most obvious when he trots, not so obvious when he walks and not at all obvious when he runs. He is happy running when off lead, no yelps or hops at all.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Regards

    Hmmm... Food for thought...I am not quite sure but is he doing it for attention?
    Don't take my word for it but it is just a guess..

    That's a thougtht. If it had happened really soon after the snip maybe, but he doesn't get any sympathy if you know what I mean.

    I thought maybe his arm/front leg was sore from the IV, but he doesn't seem tender there, no redness, swelling or heat.

    I'm quite mystified.
