limping all the time?
I just took Fugger to the doctor for his right front paw. He would curl it up as if he had a pulled muscle or charlie horse. (Think of holding his paw in your hand and feeling it actually tighten up in a curled position.) He also was x-rayed, and had a small bump on his bone. The x-ray also showed signs of arthritis. He was given Deramaxx and Glyco-flex and strict R & R. The Dr. put him thru a series of moves to try to locate the problem area, but of course Fugger was stubborn and didn't show any pain. Do you believe as soon as we got home his paw started curling again??? He only does this when he is nervous, playing very hard, or walking on cold concrete. We are going to give him 4 weeks on the pills and if it doesn't go away we will take him back for a MRI. Fugger will be 4 in November.
I hope all goes well with Dexter and hopefully this will pass.
