Another hot one here in Dardenne Prairie, Got Rigg’s to the Vet for an 08:45AM appointment. He has been limping on and off with his left hind leg for about a week. Doesn’t seem to be in pain but there is a fatty lump on his leg.
The Vet did a thorough X-Ray, and the results are that Rigg’s has hip dysplasia that he was born with. Also starting with arthritis. She gave him some medicine for inflammation and some vitamins, He has to take the medicine for 14 days, then if the limping comes back he may be on pills for the rest of his life. The good news is he is not in any pain and should be ok for a while. He weighed 105 lbs. and the Vet wants him to lose some weight and get more exercise which is tough when it is this hot since he won’t go out and play, she said swimming is best for him so I will be making more trips to the doggie park.
Rigg’s lying down by his Mom after taking his medicine.
Made a store run since I was out of beer, and stocked up on some food also.
How about a couple of throwbacks.
