We have an 8-yr-old male, chocolate lab. I noticed he was favoring his right hind leg a few days ago and thought he would be okay. He was still playful and moving. However, he is limping more and does not want to place any weight on it. Last night was the first night he did not want to touch his dinner. I’ve looked at the leg and palpated, but he didn’t grimace or whimper. How much are x-rays and should this warrant x-rays? Should we wrap his leg or provide any other treatment?
So sorry to hear about your dog, it’s hard to see them in pain. Yes! He should be seen by a vet. Labrador Retrievers are a breed that are prone to hip dysplasia (hip arthritis) and that may be what is causing him pain. But, having said that, don’t assume that is the diagnosis untilRead more.
