my dog began limping and lost all muscal in his leg after his vaccination his vet said it was not related but there were no other accidents can this be a side effect?
He did seem to be in pain and quit uncomfortable during and after the vaccination it was at a drive through clinic. i am very concerned he is a small dog and the vet that administered the vaccine didnt want to do any x-rays she just wanted to do surgewry that would cost me 800.00 up front cash which caused me great concern also.I don't think his leg is broken but he cant walk on it at all. It has been since last august.I am a low income person and cant afford alot of vet bills but i certianly do love my pet and i have had him for 5 years and he is a inside pet.Please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is not related to the vaccination. It sounds like femoral head necrosis which is a disease we see in young dogs. Of course it can be a luxating patella or many other problems related to the joints, ligaments, muscle, skeleton. vetcare
