|Nigel||If it is an ACL injury, it won't heal on its own. With us, we would rest him, then gradually let him go back to some activity only to have the pain/limp return. As others have said, best to have him checked by an ortho.|

Have them check the ACL. It may be partially torn. If it was blown she wouldn't be using it. My little dog blew out his right ACL he only yelped once, but when he tried to walk there was no support with that leg. His left one is partially torn. The right one was surgically repaired.
From what I understood at the time, torn ACL's don't show up on xrays, but they can usually tell by mensuration.

Don't screw around with a regular vet. It's a waste of your money. They should have checked that due to a possible acute injury when they checked that hip so you already have wasted money

Hi if you live near DM Ames is close to you,Call there and make a appointment at the vet College@ ISU.
Many vets just throw meds at these kinds of things.

|Nigel||Did they check for an ACL tear (cruciate ligament rupture)?|

Did you get pain meds or anti-inflammatory meds?
Did the vet recommend any exercise restriction or rest?
Have you seen an orthopedic vet?
