Unhappy Rotty Medical Problem-Limping

Hi there,
Has anyone here had problems with their limping Rotty? I have a 4 year old Rotty who is limping with his front left leg. Medication such as Sasha's blend and Metacam do not seem to help.
Please advise.

Has he seen a veterinarian? Had x-rays done?

If you haven't, I would consult a vet. Large breeds are prone to joint problems. I've heard of many reasons for limping to happen... The vet visit shouldn't cost too much, and if you have financial concerns you can tell the vet ahead of time that you aren't ready to make the decision that day about any treatments, you just want to know what you're dealing with. That would there shouldn't be any pressure. How long has he been limping? I really hope you can get everything sorted out and that your dog gets better.

Unhappy Rotty Limping

Hi,
yes, I have been to the vet, the medication that he has given me do not seem to work;Sasha's blend and metacam.
He does not know what else to do. Seem to be very amatuer. I am looking around for info from people with rottys who have had similar joint problems.
Thanks
