  1. My 6.5 yr old greyhound, Gator, developed a limp about 5 days ago. Like many, I assumed he had injured himself because he's always been pretty clumsy. As the limp remained, I tried to determine the source. I pushed, squeezed, and pulled on each toe, bone, joint, etc. Gator didn't really give any reaction to help me find where, other than his front left leg. I did all the research, and came up with a lot of things it could be. I took Gator to the vet. They thought his shoulder was swollen and suggested x-rays. Now they think it could be a tumor, but didn't really seem sure (see attached
  2. GREAT NEWS! GREAT NEWS! Pickle's corns came out today! It only took me about 10 minutes per pad using a dental root elevator and beauty scissors. Slow and steady and no greyhound screams nor blood. The prep only took 1 week. Burts Bees hand salve on her pads 4x per day. NO filing down the corns during the week as they need to be left to separate from the pad. Therapaws boots on every walk so she was cushioned whilst the corns were hardening and separating. Using the dental elevator I just picked at the edges slowly, you can easily see the corn coming away from the pad. A little snipping
  3. My five year-old hound Leni has been limping on her back right paw on occasion. Part of the pad looks to be a little raw (not the part that touches the ground when she walks) and she's had something that looks like a blood blister for awhile. Any ideas on what this could be and how I could help? Thanks! Here is a link to some photos: https://imgur.com/a/dTJmoyE
  4. Almost-13-year-old Uri's feet have been bleeding - after finding dots of blood everywhere for a few weeks, it took me a while to trace it to which dog and where. He has pink raw spots on his feet, on the outer toes, behind and above the pads (so not right on the pad). They open up and are bloody after he walks, then settle down, but stay raw, then repeat at the next walk. He has arthritis and is on meds, I have noticed he is limping worse but I don't know if it's a chicken or the egg thing - is he limping, and a change in gait is causing the outer toes to drag? Or is there some reason h
  5. Hello! I took my 4 year old ex racer on a slightly more ambitious walk than usual at the weekend - he gets quite a lot of exercise in general (for a greyhound anyway), 1 or 2 sprints a day (when he feels like it) plus at least an hour or two of walking a day. He can normally cover about 5 miles a day with no problems, and has done a 10 mile walk with no complaints (just followed by a few days snoozing!) At the weekend we did about 6 miles, but up some hills and a bit of rocky terrain. He seemed perfectly happy at the time, was skipping around at the top of hills etc but that evening he
  6. I adopted my first greyhound in June 2015. Mobi is a 3 year old, male greyhound that suddenly developed a limp on New Year's Eve. He is putting very little weight on his front left leg. However, he does not seem to be in pain and tries to jump and run at any opportunity. I took him to the vet right away, but the vet could not find anything wrong with him after poking and prodding him thoroughly. He was prescribed a pain reliever (Previcox) and showed little improvement during and after treatment. On Tuesday (1/19), I took him back to the vet for x-rays of his entire leg and nothing unusua
  7. My 3 years old greyhound has started limping about 3 weeks ago. The first thing I did is to check her foot/pads to see if there wasn't any sign of injury there. I couldn't really see anything except one tiny little dark dot on one of her pad. I took her to the vet who checked her foot, leg etc. and couldn't find anything obvious. She wasn't worried about the tiny dot. I left that day with Deramaxx for a week. The medication really helped the limp but when I ran out, it came back as bad as it was. Also, I have to mention the limp is not consistent. Sometimes, it's very subtle, sometimes it'
  8. Our wonderful (with the exception of poop eating) Greta has had a limp in her back leg these past 24 hrs. We noticed it on our short walk yesterday. She kind of shook her leg funny and we noticed it was quivering a little bit and she is mildly limping. She was panting and pacing heavily last night, which is mainly attributable to fireworks in our 'hood (Mexico had a big win in wWorld Cup so there were big celebration fireworks) but she was panting again today (some small firecrackers during afternoon today). I also noticed a slight quivering/limp today. I told DH absolutely NO runni
  9. Greta was running around in our backyard like a banshee this morning. When she was finished, I thought I noticed an ever so slight limp or jauntiness to her back leg. This evening when she went out to do her business, it seemed the same (not worse, not better). I could even be imagining it. Anyway, reason and rational thinking would lead me to conclude she might've tweaked her leg or hip a little while she was doing zoomies. Obviously I'll keep an eye on her, but tell me, is it ever just a strain? Or is that something we say to ourselves? I've never had a dog strain a muscle
  10. Hi all, I hope you don't mind me joining your great forum but I am in desperate need of some advice and it seems like greyhound owners could be my best shot at some balanced opinion. I have a 6.5 y/o Mastiff who weighs in around 85kg. He is now classed as an OAP as giant breeds typically do not live beyond 8 years of age. The past few days my partner and I have noticed some slight, intermittent limping but other than that he has been fine. Last night I took him to the vets (expecting him to have developed a bit of arthritis) and they have said he has corns on both front feet (main,
  11. Hi Everyone, After my last question here, re: inappropriate peeing when playing (on his bed) and reading everyone else's experiences, I chalked that up to just excited peeing. He's done it only once since, while playing in his 'sandbox'-got running around in full crazy dog and then he peed in the hole he was digging to lay in, then thought 'eww, now I don't want to now, can I come in?'... Goober. This morning, he (7 yo. retired racer in excellent health) got up to come outside for morning walkies, and didn't seem to be able to feel his right hind, put it down and then sort of waved it a
  12. I have a sweet playful 3 yr old 55 lb. female who started limping 2 1/2 weeks ago. I took her to the vet when after 48 hrs she was not improving and he put her on vetprophen. She did get some better but not much and was still very much her silly playful self. This week he examined her & narrowed the problem down to her left front knee/elbow. She has never yelped or "complained" - only limped. He put her on 10mg prednisone 2X's a day for 5 days then 10mg once a day for 5 days. This is day 2 and the limp is gone but so is my playful girl. She seems very lethargic and sad. Should I be c
  13. Pixie is limping this morning and we can't work out why. My husband says she was OK when she went out in the garden earlier, then when she jumped off her bed to say good morning to me the limp started. It's on the front right and she is lifting the paw. Thinking it might be cramp I have massaged the leg and shoulder. She has had a 50mg Rimadyl. She still had a little run in the garden (a few strides) despite the limp! It's beginning to look like it might be one of her toes. She whimpers when I touch the inner toe and webbing, and pulls it away. Yet I have examined it with a torch a
