He was strted back on the supplements and a daily dose of buffed asprin, which has helped, as he is back to wanting to play and run around, however he does still experienc some swelling on occasion, if he sleeps on that leg during the night.
To late to make a long story short, but we have been wrapping the leg to help keep it warm , he has a elevated bed w/ plenty of padding, elevated food & water bowl. We have put him on a diet to try to lower his weight but he was not overweight to begin with just big at 210 pds. Is anyone else having this problem and knows of anything else, besides the shots he can take (they kinda scare me as i have heard bad things, but do not have any personal experience w/ them) that would help?
We knew this would eventally be a problem but we didn't think it'd be an issue at this age, he is only 5 and his condition is only going to get worse. He doesn't seem to be in pain yet just having some swelling :(
