We have taken our friends 6 yearold border collie to rehome, as their world are falling into disaster, work wise/relationship etc.He has a pre existing shoulder problem if exerted, as fell 24ft when about 2yrsold.Xrayed at time, and told it was ligament damage.This dog is wonderful, and my son who has aspergers has been fantastic at looking after him, as well as the dog being amazing for him.Unfortunately they have over done. the exercise & play, so as warned dog is limping.rESTING UP LAST TWO DAY, IS IMPROVING GREATLY.Wonder if Vet would be able to prescribe an anti-inflamitory to ease recovery?Unfortunately still awaiting health records from previous vet, although have vaccination card, and letter from previous owners.A. Can I contact previous Vet for records, to minimise paying for new Xray etc. B. How much do you think vet would charge.Just need to work out figures.Previous owners said he just needs to rest for few days.Many Thanks
You have answered my first question.Thankyou,but not my second, and this says Uk, and you have answered in dollars.Can you advise re: progress in his repair, and do you think an anti-inflammatory would help?
Ok, Thankyou, just want to make sure that I am doing the right thing, as he is the most beautiful of nature,and my son who is 11, is the happiest he has been in years, having a poor social interaction with his peers, although exceptionally bright.I just feel bad that he has been all out play(Caleb).His previous owners say rest is what is required.They once had an injection given when he had strained himself catching Frisbee.This is now band.He loves a bath, but I am concerned he is too sore at the moment,but would play if you let him.Keeping very still at moment.Apparently no problem since then.Murdo now understands that we have to minimize activities, so do you think in your professional opinion that will help?We are taking him to vet tomorrow, with hopefully his health record, which is perfect apart from this re-occuring limp?
