RE: Babaloo is skipping or hopping a little
A few weeks ago Babaloo sorta skipped a day ot two after his neutering.
And then I didn't notice it until this past week. This past weekend, I took him on a walk for over an 1 1/2 hours. Since then he has been sorta skipping a little more often. He is also running and daring you to chase him.
I started to search for Luxating Patella's and found many a thread on that one.
Babaloo's knees are fine so the Vet confirmed. The Vet did some further looking and found that he had some soreness near his hip and noticed some difference in the muscle mass on his hind legs.
He is treating it right now as if it's a sprain but told me to come back in 2 weeks. He described Legg Calves Perth disease to me and I almost freaked.
He's on an G3, SynoviG3 , I guess this is the anti inflamatory and Metacam (pain killer). I didn't think he was in any pain since he wasn't whinning or whimpering.
So my fingers are crossed that it's a bad sprain that I have no idea how he got.
He's going to miss his first East Coast Play date and Haloween party.
But he's gonna be fine in time.
