When to see a Veterinarian

Does your dog: 

  • Have difficulty going up and down stairs?
  • Have difficulty with jumps?
  • Lose his balance?
  • Drag her paws?
  • Have difficulty with bowel and bladder function?
  • Avoid certain floor surfaces that he was previously comfortable with?
  • Avoid certain sporting movements or turns?
  • Have pain?
  • Have unexplained aggression?
  • Scissor his legs?
  • Have difficulty getting up?

If your answer is yes to any of the questions above you need to see your vet.  The story can often be: an owner will come home from work and suddenly their best friend cannot get up.
