X-Ray Results

We cyber-paw pals the results of my x-rays are in.  I have calcium build ups in spots in the rear leg.  Essentially bone spurs for dogs.  Doc was mentioning old injuries maybe not healing up.  Dad was thinking of me on fence patrol, running, barking, bouncing, making screeching stops, turning on a dime.  That probably put stress on my bones, but I do love fence patrol

Dad wand Doc looked at the x-rays.  Doc explained there was no fractures or hip dysplasia, sigh that is a relief.  The Doc mentioned there was no cancer, bowsers we never even thought about cancer.

In thinking it over Dad figured he will keep me on zoom and give the pill sparingly.  We could do surgery, but there is never any guarantees with that.  So Dad will keep an eye on me and give me hugs.

Dog Speed,

Essex

well that is good news in that there was no real bad news....maybe you have to limit the fence patrol

Hugs can work wonders! Sounds like pretty good news, all told.

I bet it feels good to know what's going on with the old girl. Sounds like what my vet said about Slick's loss of tail hair, "we'll just keep an eye on it." You might be in a bit of a quandary in making a decision whether or not if Essex loses her beloved fence patrol, but at least her hind legs will thank you (and her). We're glad she's ok, so keep us posted!

Thank goodness there are no fractures or dysplasia or worse. Is there something that be given to reduce the calcium deposits? Yes Essex has to learn to take it easy now!

Hugs and Zoom should do it. Glad there is nothing too serious!

So glad to hear that it is nothing too serious! Zoom and hugs sounds like a good game plan....and maybe slightly limiting fence patrol. Just part of getting a bit older...

Take it easy, Essex!
