Took Bronco into the vet today because she had been limping for a week.The vet felt around and said that she heard crunching in her elbow. She is 26 months and in incredible shape. 64 pounds of lean muscle. We are an athletic family and include our dogs always and now I'm just kicking myself that maybe we did too much?
Recently though we had a new neighbor move in about six months ago and they started fence fighting. It's annoying to say the least so we don't allow our dogs to fence fight much, but I'm sure when we are out and about it goes on! Well I asked the vet about this and she said that the jarring of running back and fourth could be the cause. We get X rays on Monday and I am just so dissapointed. The vet said that she didn't have a good feeling about it and she may need surgery. I just feel awful. Worst case scenario she does need surgery, what will our life be like after? Will she still be able to on hikes with us?
