I know I haven't been present on the board much but I'm seeking advice or reassurance :/
My RR began favoring his front R leg/paw occasionally about 1.5 weeks ago. Noticed him doing it only when he first woke up. I thought maybe his foot was falling asleep or maybe the start of arthritis (he's almost 5). Then all of sudden last week he began lifting it up and barely walking on it, at times hopping around.
Took him to the vet and they did a clinical workup and didn't see anything out of the ordinary (nothing overtly structural or neurological anyway). Recommended some NSAIDS and rest and to f/u this week.
We'll, the only exercise he's gotten is going outside the bathroom and occasional play with my other dog (thwarted by me as soon as they start). He's taken almost all of the Rimadyl and no change. Still limping
I made another vet appt and he's going in for xrays this week. I'm paranoid now, and hope it's just arthritis or a strain (although I would assume he would be showing signs of improvement since taking the Rimadyl).
Any suggestions on things I should be doing or asking the vet? Should I restrict his activity even more? I'm terrified that he has the C word
