Guest javakaty Posted June 26, 2016 Share Posted June 26, 2016 My grey, Nica (5yo female) has started only using three legs. She did the same thing about 6 weeks, and we took her to the vet when it didn't stop for 3 days. They checked her out and couldn't figure out what was wrong, so they out her under and did X-rays. The X-rays didn't show anything, but when they brought her back out, she was walking just fine. They gave us an anti-inflammatory and pain mess (although I don't think she was in any pain). We thought it could have been a pinched nerve or something that was unpinched from the manipulation for the X-rays. She's been just fine for the past 6 weeks, and it just started up again. This time she goes back and forth between favoring her back leg, but still using it, and only using 3 legs. I can tell something isn't right with her, because she is hanging out inside instead of the backyard in the sun with us, where she normally hangs out. Looking at her pads again, one on her hurt leg looks a little off and drier/cracking compared to the others. Any thoughts on whether that is what it is, or other ideas on what it could be? I'll post pictures when I figure out how to. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
