lab which is lame in back right leg
I have a 7 year old black lab at 92 lbs, very tall, which is lame in back right leg.
This is the fourth week now. I had a xray taken & no hip dsyplasia, no torn legiments or arthritis & no bone cancer, showed up in the xray. $400 later.Two doctors in the office looked at the xrays. She is on pain pills, but cant take anti inflamation pills due to low liver count. I am not sure where to go from here. Is it safe to give her coated aspirin. Not sure if issue is in the hock area, looked a bit swollen, I had said to vet I thought it was her foot, but vet said it wasnt her foot. Vet suggested having second opionion from professional xray technician take a look at xray for another $80 since she couldnt find anything unusual or to take another xray of her leg. The cost for leg exray is another $155. I have a appointment setup for tuesday to recheck her & possible xray on leg this time.
Any suggestions would be greatly apreciated.
