My 10uear old lab has gone lame on her right hind
She is walking like it has popped out of her socket however at the end ofJanuary she she had X-rays medication and lab tests but all ok
Is this something you can help with or do I need to get the bet to refer to a surgeon or for an MRI
I appreciate any information you can give me
Many thanks Alex
She is now being referred for a MRI which should hopefully show if there is any ligament/ tissue damage… fingers crossed
If your dog is still lame and you don’t have a diagnosis then your first thing should be to go and discuss it with your vet. Did your vet give you a plan?
Sometimes if nothing specific is found on initial investigation then a period of trial treatment (you mentioned medication) and controlled exercise, followed by a re-examination is used as part of the diagnostic investigation. If this is the case your vet should have given you an indication of when she should be rechecked.
