I just noticed yesterday that my dog is limping on her left back leg. She yelped when I touched it. I gave her children's aspirin to help ease the pain. I also just noticed this morning that she is drinking excess water. I have her yearly vet visit scheduled for 2/2/03. I was going to wait until then to see if she gets any better. I also noticed that she has put pressure on that leg, so I thought maybe she could be exagerating. I don't know if this pertains but she has had back problems in the past though they haven't been serious. Could you help me to figure out what may be the problem? Thanks.
If she continues to limp, especially if she is not weight bearing then I recommend that you bring her to the vet sooner. vetcare
