4 Yr Old Aussie Having Issues Getting Up After A Nap
(Brighton, MI, USA)
I have an Aussie that just turned 4 and about 3 weeks ago I noticed he had some issues getting up from a nap... I took him to the vet and they seemed to think because it wasn't hurting him at all, it was probably a strain or something... they prescribed Rimadyl and off I went.
It seems to be getting worse... at first, it was just his left rear leg... but now he is having problems getting off the ground at all and I think after observation, it seems to be almost spreading to his front legs...
I have read a few online Q and A's and most point to arthritis or hip displaysia...but the way it seems to be spreading doesn't sit well with me...
