Leg Injury

My 4 year old has exhibited a slight limp for the past few weeks. It comes and goes depending on what type, and how much, exercise she engages in. Is this common or could it be a more serious injury?

Leg Injury

I would definitely get it looked at! Our 3 year old had a reoccurring injury to right front leg. She then developed other symptoms....like back arched, lethargy, sleeping all of the time...it was Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia! Her body stopped making platelets and almost died. Not too uncommon in Aussies. I know this is rare but I would get it checked!

My male aussie started this when he was about 4. After several trips and calls it was decided he had R arthritis. With medication he lived a long fairly active life. Rainy and winter weather were hard. Good luck. Maybe he has just a pulled muscle but I would get it checked...Becky T
