Guest firsttimer Posted August 7, 2008 Share Posted August 7, 2008 Senator started limping out of the blue 4 weeks ago. After the initial panic attack we went to the vet for a check. He is a very stoic boy and no amount of manipulation will make him yelp, blink, anything to give us a clue as to what hurts. It is his left front leg. It doesn't stop him from running, though I've been trying to sit on him. After he runs he limps and sometimes won't put his foot down. Whether he runs or not, when he gets up from lying down he limps heavily and then it seems to ease after he's walked around a bit. We started him on glucosomine 3 weeks ago but it doesn't seem to be having any effect. He was on an Novox for a week and it seemed to help but I also didn't let him run at all that week. Eventually he starts to go crazy from the lack of exercise (leash walks don't seem to satisfy him) and he'll start to run in the house. He's just about to turn six and never raced. The vet has suggested testing for lyme but he still has sooooo much energy I don't think that's it. I'm thinking xrays next. Any ideas?
