Hello, I am Dr. Peter a licensed Veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. I need to ask you a few questions first to be well informed and give you the best advice. There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.

1- Is the lameness always from the same leg?
2- Does the limping get better after movement?
3- Is it a back or front leg?
4- How long has this been going on?
