I took Lily to the vet today to get x-rays ( she has been limping for 3 weeks and is on a liquid anti-inflamitory)

Something is wrong with the groth plates in her front legs ( the vet gave me a long explaination- didn't really get much of it)
She is 5 months old and the vet wants to make sure the legs have a chance to grow (and heal) without being aggitated while she is still growing.

Sooo... that mean she is stuck in the kennel at all times unless she is being inactive on the couch (and i can keep and eye on her so she can't jump down) and she has to be on the leach outside only long enough to do her business... All this for at LEAST 3 weeks.

It's going to be a long month for all of us! (now Daisy has noone to play with :( )

Has anyone had any experience with this type of problem? any advice on how to make it any easier?


Sorry, I'm still trying to figure the forum out and I always hit the quote....

Jessica, is this like pano?? I have heard of pano before, it happens to mastiffs alot, although none of mine have ever suffered with it. They say it can be seen on ex-rays too...I hope she feels better soon!
