I have an 18 month old border collie. He's not a working dog and doesn't do agility. A few weeks ago he started with occasional lameness in his back right leg. He walked fine on a lead, he limped occasionally on a slow trot but was fine on a fast trot and full speed run. He never showed any signs of pain and I don't know how it occurred. A trip to the vet resulted in rest and anti inflammatories. He showed no signs of improvement so he went back and had X rays which ruled out hip dysplasia and knee issues. More rest and anti inflammatories and he's still limping and has started limping on his other leg as well. He's full of life and is dying to get back out and running about. The vet said initially that VID_20181204_122935.mp4 it was probably his ilopsaos muscle but I'm wondering why he's started limping on his other leg? Anyone got any ideas or had similar issues??
Hello guys, In three weeks, I will welcome my Border Collie pup home, she will be 2 months. She hasn't received any vaccine yet, so I have an appointment a few days after she arrives so she can get her first shot(s). How can I walk her and exercise her outside in the meantime, until she receives her three shots? Is it THAT risky to do a 20-minute walk every two hours (housebreaking)? Thank you, L
