9 month old, growing pains?
We are the owners of a wonderful female shepherd named Roxy. We have noticed around 5 months that she would limp on and off. Now, at 9 months, she just finished her first heat cycle (we are getting her spayed next month), and she seems to have pain in all of her limbs, yet she will play on them like normal. She has recently gotten defensive about her food, and will growl, even snap, if we try to touch her forearms which she never had done before. It's not a paw problem, but seems to be around the ends of the long bones, like the elbow joint and wrist? Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are really frustrated to see her in pain.
