RobinM Posted July 19, 2008 Share Posted July 19, 2008 (edited) Just 2 weeks ago, I brought Beau in to the vet because he was not using his back right leg, at all. This is the same leg that he had major surgery in a year before from being silly and crazy in our backyard. Vet felt no swelling but the tendons were very tight and he screamed. Felt it could be either trauma to a already suscepible leg in which case rest rest rest is in order OR possibly another rip which wouldn't show in any other way other than lameness or exploratory. Her feeling is that since the x-ray in May was clean, we should keep him rested, give him deramaxxfor the next 2 weeks and if nothing changes, we will have to sedate him to have the leg manipulated to see what's up. As she said, he should NOT be going through this every 3 months. He got better over the last 2 weeks and was himself again. It's hard to keep Beau quiet as he is just not that type of puppy. He jumps and goes crazy tearing down the steps when we go downstairs. There is no way to restrain this nutjob. Tonight out of the blue, once again he is tripoding. I went over to the bed where he was lying down and put my hand on the bad leg as if to lightly massage it and it's vibrating. I not sure if it's a spasm or what? I gave him a deramaxx & tramadol and there will be no walks tonight although he is started to stare at me and whine which is the prelude to the nightly dog walks. He is hoping from bed to bed, I think he is having trouble getting comfortable. I will call the vet in the morning. Yeesh, poor Beau. ________________________________________ UPDATE SATURDAY MORNING- I brought Beau in as an emergency visit early this morning instead of waiting for a 10:20 appointment, this way he was NPO. When she felt his leg she noticed that his knee cap was popping in and out??? WHAT THE HECK DID THIS INSANE BOY DO NOW??? Anyway, they will sedate him and do another set of x-rays to see what's up. If necessay e will need ortho surgery...again Monday. Please pray for my Beau...again. I just hope it's as easy as popping it back in and he's back to normal. My poor baby. he was FLIPPING when I left him. Heck, he was flipping when we pulled up at the vet.
