Swollen knuckle joint with slight limp

Recommended Posts

Anyone experienced this? Henry's pretty stoic so I'm not sure how long it's been bothering him, but we've been bad parents and focused more on Leo's issues so it's probably been two weeks. I'm going to call the vet in the morning, but any thoughts about this and osteo?


Beth and Henry and Leo. Bridge kids Gretta and Samantha (rabbits), and Little Arnold, Jakie, Arnold, Charlie, Sophie, and Rosie (guinea pigs). Godspeed Patrick (28 April 1999 - 5 August 2012) and Murphy (23 June 2004 - 27 July 2013), you were loved more than you can know.

Could be just a dislocation that popped back in on its own or, not sure how old Henry is, could be something Conner has called "sprung toe" where the ligaments around the joint are stretched out and the joint swells. That usually heals on its own with rest, but cold laser helps. Hopefully vet will figure it out.

It doesn't seem like a dislocation (we deal with those with Leo a lot), but fingers are crossed it's that presenting differently than I'm used to or a sprain. There's no warmth or redness to indicate an infection and it's not getting worse so I decided to wait until Tuesday when he can see his normal vet, I'll ask for an x-ray.
