Dylandog Posted January 9, 2012 Report Share Posted January 9, 2012 Dylan is a 3 year old neutered bc who has an unknown problem with his legs. His hips were x-rayed just over a year ago but 2 different vets said they looked normal. Neither vet could find anything wrong while examining him and said that the problem may go away by the time he is 3 but it’s getting worse. It’s hard to explain but one back leg looks stiff when he walks while to other seems to wobble and twist a bit. He has started to move both back legs together when he runs and it looks like he puts more weight on the stiff leg when running but I may be wrong. A year ago the vets they had trouble seeing the problem now random people are asking what is wrong with Dylan’s legs. Maybe 4 times in the last year Dylan has been incontinent (urine) after lots of running around. He also limps intermittently on his front legs. He has done this since he was about 6 months old but from about a year old he would take off the skin on his front pads repeatedly so any limping was put down to that, but he is still limping even though his pads are now fine. Dylan never sits unless told to. He does not even sit to scratch he ear. If he is made to sit for a long time he moves badly afterwards. When walking I sometimes hear his back claws dragging and he sticks his tongue out a lot (this is getting worse I think), like he forgets about it, however, his bottom jaw is too short so its hard to tell the cause. Dylan also suffers with colitis triggered by food. He becomes intolerant to new foods if he has them often. Every NSAID we have tried has made him very ill with colitis and done nothing for his legs. Dylan is due to have more x-rays done soon, what else should I ask for/about? No one I have talked to seems to have any idea what is wrong so any ideas are much appreciated!
