Sudden back right leg limping
Joey turned 13 on Thanksgiving Day. Had no problems during the day. As he was going outside to do his nighttime business, he seemed wobbly. Had trouble going upstairs. We went to our PA house the next day; the limping got worse. We made him rest until we came back home today. His walking improved some.
His vet checked him out today. Nothing broken or torn. Prescribed Metacam and lots of rest.
She mentioned possible causes (sprain, spinal, arthritis, and the dreaded DM word), but was not overly concerned since he appears to be improving instead of getting worse. If he does get worse, she will take X-rays.
Anyone have this happen to their GSD?
