Last week I had Molly's front legs x-rayed (8 x-rays in all) and pleased to say that all seems fine with her joints. They were sent away to a specialist as my vet said he couldn't see anything wrong, and today I heard back that the specialist has also given her the all clear. I had them done as she had been limping intermittently since about February. I had a couple of visits to the vet, but each time she didn't limp and a very thorough physical examination of her whole body, not just front legs, didn't produce any reaction from her and the vet said he couldn't feel anything wrong. I nearly cancelled the x-rays as about 4 days before the appointment she stopped limping entirely, but decided to go ahead. Pleased to say that she hasn't limped since - so guessing it may have been a pulled muscle. I've had her on a diet for a month and she's lost 2kg so far, with another 3kg to go. I think the limp finally made me take her overweight seriously. She had to have a general anaesthetic, but because she is so nervous at the vet, they let me stay with her while she was sedated. She recovered very quickly - x-rays at 11 a.m., home by 2.30, asking for food by 4.30pm and bringing me her rope for a tuggy game by 7pm!
