    My big lab x occasionally gets pain around his back legs/hips (no displaysia) and the vet and I both think it is due to twising himself into bizarre positions to play with his much smaller best mate.

    The first time it happened he had anti inflammatories and was crated for a week.

    Now I just automatically crate him when he shows any signs. A day or two of crating and he is right as rain,

    Hi Roz

    I hope you and the vet find a way to help your dog. Maybe it's just a grass seed embedded?

    I took him to the vets and he is going back on Tuesday for a few xrays to find out why he is in so much and pain and with a limp. They think it is serious but we have to wait for the results on tuesday and they have changed his painkiller. He seems a bit happier and he sleeps with out crying as much so cross fingers he will be happier till tuesday. I have to wait till tuesday cause the senior vet is doing the xrays and not junior vets. It is in his hands. I got of got it done earlier but not by him so he asked if we could wait till then so he can take over the whole case with Axel and I am happy with his judgement and I have the specialist on hold if I need to take him there for physio or that.
    thanks everyone for there help, hopefully I will know next week.

    putting them in a small cage so they cant move much....well for this purpose anyway.

    Some people use crates for bed time or when they go out.

    The vet has put him on Rimadyl 100mg once a day with food. It is good to see him sleeping and not crying all the time in his sleep. Maybe we can give him some relief but John the vet has said when we go to pick him up on Tuesday we will have a big major talk and it won't be easy but he thinks a operation won't help cause it is to severe but there will be other things to keep him and he is to much part of the furniture to give up on. He is just like a child in the family which I know sounds weird but I get more effection from him than my own children and he understands when I am upset so he is worth everything to me.

    Oh I don't think I could do that. He would sook to much. He likes his freedom to much. It is bad enough he will be in a cage at the vets Monday night when i take him in cause I can't get him there in the morning on Tuesday cause I have to get to work. I can't even keep him on a leash if someone comes over. He likes to run around to much. He has as much freedom as I do

    My dogs have free range in the house too but when Barneys legs get sore, he goes in the crate.

    If they arent moving round it really helps with the inflammation.
