Showing results for tags 'swollen wrist'.
Hi everyone, I was referred here from my local greyhound forum. I've been looking through some past posts and it looks like a greyt place! Our Oni has a lump on her wrist. It started out kind of mushy (inflammation I guess), then the mushiness went away and we were left with a hard bony lump that is different from the other side. We took her to the vet who felt a bony protrusion and then we, got an x-ray. The vet said he couldn't see the bone degeneration typical of cancer, but that it could be that it's too early to show. Other than that he saw something that looked like it *could*
We went to our fun run and Molly tweaked her wrist (well, what would be our writst) on her front paw. She was favoring it so I put her in a crate to rest. It's noticeably swollen and she won't put any weight on it. I tried icing it and it's the first time she gave any indication of pain. It does NOT look good and she looks miserable. She wouldn't even get up for attention from the woman at the drive-thru window! Any advice would be much appreciated. She's in a crate now to avoid movement (although she's so tired and unhappy it's probably not necessary). TIA- GG (and Molly)
