Hip questions

Postby dc727 » Wed Sep 07, 2016 3:54 pm

I have 15mo GWP, who has been acting a little off lately. It started the other night he was playing with our husky, he was running the started yelping and was limping on his back leg, and came to me and continued to whimper. 5 Minutes later he was up and running like it never happened. The wife just called me freaking out and it happened again. Except it was a bit worse. He laid on the floor and acted like he couldn't move for about 45 seconds, then limped on his leg while whimpering, Then 5 minutes later back to his old self. Any advice?

CCL - ligament possibly wrapped around a joint .. or a pull if they were rough housing.
Get dog into vet to check if its a source... not early enough the joint fluid will disintegrate the ligament.
