Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon possible.
Could I just check how long he has had the limp for? Has he seen a vet already for this problem?
Ok and is this a front or back leg?
Ok. I would be concerned by the amount of time which the lameness has been present for, generally speaking most soft tissue injuries do not persist so long. I would want him to have the leg checked by a vet to see if the likely cause of the pain can be identified, especially as he s not that old. Potentially xrays may also be required. At the very least some anti inflammatory pain relief will be needed to keep him comfortable.
