Q. My 11 year old dog is limping. I checked for stuff in her toes and found nothing. I thought it was arithritis but found one paw to be swollen. Should
A. Has the lameness only just started and after some exercise or out of the bloom ? How much swelling does this paw have ? Is the lameness severe or mild ? How is your dog general health ? Is he/she on any medications ? There are lots of information needed to be able to help you, I would recommend a check up to help her with the swelling and pain associated. If this has only occurred and you need to wait a few hours for your appointment, keep your dog strictly rested, and please don't use any human medications as this can cause life threatening problems to our pets. I hope she/he gets better soon.
