Einstein is Limping

Einstein has been limping for about a week now. He's only 9 months old and 12 lbs. No one really noticed it but me until I kept mentioning it to the family. He doesn't limp when he walks or runs but when he trots I notice something isn't right. No one can even pinpoint for sure which leg they think it is but we all now think the right front? Still not sure. I have read about the possible problems. I am taking him to the vet this morning. She does all the leg issues and surgeries on legs. We live about 2 hours from an orthopedic surgeon that I took my Newfie to so if she suggests surgery I will ask about her record but she does a lot of small dogs and the surgeon 2 hours from me does large breed mostly. Poor Einstein gets all the issues. A month ago he had a really bad corneal abrasion. He actually waited by the counter for the cream I had to rub on his eye 4 times a day. He knew the cream was making it better. Such a great pup. I was just looking for a few prayers for Einstein. Thanks for listening.

Trudy, mom to Einstein,Watson and Griffin too!

Oh no, Trudy! I hope Einstein just has some sort of minor problem that is easily taken care of. I'll be sending up healing thoughts for the little guy.

Yes, maybe it's just the result of a minor injury. He's young and I'm sure likes to roughhouse. Keep us posted.

I'm sorry your little Einstein is having problems the vet is the best to ask. These guys jump around so much it is easy to stain a muscle. Smarty limped really badly one day, it looked like she had broken her foot, then I discovered an acorn wedged in her pad. Keep us posted.

Poor Einstien. I hope it is nothing serious. Sometimes I think the Internet is a curse because we can read about all the worst case scenarios. Let us know what the vet finds.
Prayers for him on the way!!

Poor Einstein. I hope the vet finds it's just something minor. Will keep him in prayer.

Bless his little heart (and leg!), I hope he's ok. He probably just played too hard and will be find but I'm like you and it's worth a visit to the vet for peace of mind.

Oh Trudy, I am sorry and hope it's nothing serious. I have a "limper." Jackson did not start limping until a year and a half, and after x-rays, it was determined he has some degenerative bone issues in his shoulder. I give him glucosamine supplements every day which have really helped. I hope yours is nothing like that, but if it's something correctable, he is young and you are doing the right thing to have it checked out early. We'll be looking for Einstein's report and thinking good thoughts.
