My dog is 11 years old. Occaisonally she limps, favoring her left front leg.
It seems to begin after jumping down from our bed. Is this muscle strain, or arthritis? Is there medication for dogs for arthritis? Is is safe? My vet told me to give 1/2 a baby aspirin, but not more often than once every two day. This last time has been much worse than ever before, she can barely walk. She does better after taking the baby aspirin. What else can I do for her?
I recommend that you have an x-ray taken for an accurate diagnosis. Then the proper treatment can be given. Thanks, vetcare
