150 150 PVC

Animals are very good at hiding injuries and illness, so if your pet starts to limp, you can be sure they are in pain, and it’s time to take to your vet. Lameness can be caused by many underlying issues, so a full examination will be required to diagnose the problem.

Some of the common causes of lameness are:

  • Muscle soreness
  • Arthritis
  • Back or spinal soreness
  • Knee ligament issues

Many muscle related lameness will resolve within a few days to a week. If your pet is still showing lameness after a week, it would be best to come in for an examination to try to find treatment.
