Back leg limping
I have a 9 year old GSD who's been limping for almost 4 days. It all started when he saw a cat on a tree and tried to stand on both of his legs, which he hasn't been able to do for a while. I have previously done multiple X-rays. He has arthritis in his lower spine and his hips are not in perfect shape but they are ok.
He has been on NutraMax Cosequin DS PLUS MSM for almost a year and it has done wonders. He gets 2 tablets/day. I also give him salmon oil every day.
I am thinking it could be a muscle strain because when I gently massage the vastus medialis muscle it causes him lots of pain. But it also hurts him when I press my thumb on his lower back. I will probably go to the vet tomorrow even though I was there 2 weeks ago and the doc said he was ok.
appreciate any feedback.
