Jools, how worrying for you. Sometimes I think Betty walks with a bit of a limp/stutter - I'm told I'm being paranoid ( I have read far too much about
luxating patellas and hip dysplasia) but know that she has probably been a little
bit over excerised ( difficult as she is with a dog sitter). Please let us know how you get on. Keeping my fingers crossed for you that it's nothing serious - Dexter is such a cute dog.

Hi Jools, Izzy went through a phase of limping after she had been resting. The limp was on her rear left leg; after a while I took her to the vet and they said she had muscle wastage on that leg. She was x-rayed as they were worried about hip dysphasia. The x rays were clear and after a few months the limp has virtually gone. I think it is important to get anything checked that you are concerned about and it it is nothing you can relax. My x rays and sedative cost £90 - but a friend had her cairn x rayed at another local vet who charged her £180.

Hi Colin, all ok .... when the vet manipulated his leg there was no pain so seems to think there is nothing to worry about!! But he did say to continue with his walks and not to restrict his exercise as thats what makes their joints strong - obviously not massive walks but the 40 mins he normally gets in the day and a shorter one at night round the block! So heres to a worry free nights sleep!!! P.s............have ordered some pet glucosamine just to be on the safe side!! Thanks for ur concern - big hugs to betty xxxx

Hi Jools,
haven't been in the forum for a while, was really worried, reading your concerns about Dexter. So relieved, that vet's visit turned out okay. Keep an close eye on Dexter and I think it's a great idea with the glucosamine. Good luck, woof woof from Brother Cider xxx
