It's off to the vets this evening, I was informed he was limping on his back leg, Saturday felt really bad being away from home and hearing this, well 4 days later he still holds it up off the ground when standing, and limps when mooching around the garden strangely enough when he's expecting you to throw his ball its a case of mind over matter, and he doesn't slow down limping hoping its a muscular problem and they give him anti inflammatory injection.
Well bad news Looks like it's cruciate damage, I'm taking him for a second opinion on Saturday at our normal vets ( not the one we use for his inoculations, as they are cheaper ) they did Tobi's ops when he did both his in 6 months apart . Fingers crossed they got it wrong, he's had metacam injection, and goes back tomorrow for more meds, I was totally open with them of my intentions
Oh poor Beau, when we thought that, that was what Jasper had done I did a lot of reading up on cruciate ligament damage and it's not always necessary to operate as 8 weeks total rest and it will repair itself. If I was you when you get your second opinion I'd ask for and x-ray. Good luck, and keep us informed.
Sorry to hear about Beaus leg problem S.W. such a worry when they have health problems.Hopefully it won't be a ligament problem as feared. A friends B.C. was thought to have cruciate ligament problem,and even had visit to specialist vet in Leeds.After lots of investigations the dog was given a steroid injection and the change in her has been miraculous! Good job she was insured,as investigations cost a small fortune. So fingers crossed for Beau, the thought of trying to get a Springer to rest and take it easy sounds like mission impossible.Fingers crossed for you both.
