We have a 7 year old English mastiff. On Saturday, we noticed she had slight limp while taking her for a walk. We cut the walk short and got her home. By Sunday, she was putting little pressure on her leg. Sunday night she would yelp while getting up. We took her to the vet yesterday. He manipulated the leg and stretched it out to check her hips. She barely squealed while at the vet. He gave her a pain killer and joint medicine. He said, it is possible she strained something and to let her rest and give her medicine. He said if it hasn't gotten better in a couple of weeks we need to bring her back for x rays. She has a hard time getting up, but once she does she gets around ok.
Have any of you had leg isssues in your large breed dogs?
