I am having a panic attack. My 8 year old Jasper, whom I adopted when he was 1 & 1/2 years old and was always 100% sound was running off leash this morning with my 10 year old greyhound. Nothing out of the ordinary, they run and play frequently. We walked home from the park, no lameness nothing off all day. At around 5:30pm as I was taking both boys out for their evening walk, Jasper came into the kitchen completely not putting weight on his left back leg. The area around the hock looks swollen and warm to the touch and looks considerably bigger then his right back leg. I gave him a 50 mg dose of Deramexx as of right now the lameness subsided and he is putting weight on that leg but the area is still swollen. We have a vet appointment tomorrow at 1pm. I am having a nervous breakdown and convinced it's Osteo. (having lost an 8 year old greyhound to it in 2012), I live in fear of this horrible disease and can't bear the thought of this happening again. Please think good thoughts for my sweet Jasper. I have been having panic attacks since 5:30pm, I am nauseous form anxiety and writing this post at 1:30am.
