Question from Greta Kirby

Greta Kirby

Lab Mix, age 6 yr.

Our lab mix, Lucy, has started to limp. She lifts her left hind leg when walking and appears to be in pain. When we rub the leg and her back it seems to give her relief. We are wondering if this is arthritis or degenerative joint disease?

Our Vet Says:

It is very difficult to give a diagnosis from your description. For a good diagnosis it is best to consult a vet. If you want you can give an anti-inflammatory medicine, if it is artthritis you can see an improvment in your dog� s condition.You can choose out of Rimadyl, Metacam, Ketofen, these are all non-steroidial anti-inflammatory drugs and the effect will be visible after two weeks of treatment. The treatment can be for a period of one -three months. However as these are all prescription medication, you will need to consult a vet
