Six Month Old Aussie Limping

by Artie
(Danvers, Ma)


Our six month old Aussie Charlie has been limping on both his front and rear legs over the past week. He seems to get up slow. We took him to the vet who stated probably just a soft tissue injury. Is there anything we should be worried about.

Are you sure you are not over exercising him? He is still very young and should not to doing long hikes, playing a lot on soft ground/sand, jumping as in agility work etc etc. His joints are not strong enough yet for this type of activity and will give problems for years to come if allowed. He needs to be at least 1 year old before any of this strenuous stuff.

Have you thought of taking him to a holistic doctor? he/she can help alot, I take mine, and she does all kinds of maniuplations(like a chiropractor), lassar, heat, etc., even supplements Nothing against regular vts, this would be as a supplement to or instead of, if you wish. I would look into it, if I were you. bit a ligitment one.

Dietary issues can cause lameness, Panosteitis is common at this age, elbow and/or hip dysplasia could be showing up. I would see another veterinarian and get a second opinion.
