Was he tested for Lyme or any other tick diseases? That should have been a quick test to do in the office.

No she said its not that and said within 2 mins of looking at him its Rheumatoid athirst
Took sample of fluid in his hock want back for results yesterday and shes saying now shes 99% sure
at first they thought he pulled a muscle gave me a NON steroid anti inflammatory med and pain meds
He was on that for near a week and just got worse
Went back this time seen a different vet that gave Rheumatoid athirst Diagnosis
She gave me a Steroid and antibiotic in 3 days ON ANTIBOTICS Inflammation was gone and he was 95% Better Didn't start the Steroids till Later that Day
iam planning to take him Monday for a second opinion
