Guest Linn Posted July 8, 2013 Share Posted July 8, 2013 Does anyone have any experience with a tear in the gastrocnemius tendon? The tear is right where the tendon attaches to the bone at the point of the hock. Ace has had x-rays and an ultra sound done and there appears to be no cancer but there is some swelling. So far they have him on deramaxx 75....3/4 to 1 pill a day. I have been giving him 1 becasue he seems to be having such a hard time limping around. They say it could be 2-3 months before it gets better. The vet is checking with a surgeon to see if we should have a cast or support on it but he thinks that putting one on will cause too much pressure at the joint. I should hear from him later today or tomorrow. Ace is such a good boy and I feel so bad for him. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
