Could be anything from cramps to strain/sprain to muscle damage to hereditary defects appearing. There is no way to diagnose this without being hands on with the dog. Needless to say, a trip to the vet is in order. Especially as you have no idea of how this occurred.

Bill here, sorry about yer dog. Love hearing about odd dogs that work good on diff game. I once had a Rotwieler that was a great duck dog, got a lot of funny looks but he was amazing! Wasn't interested in πŸ¦† but just wanted to please you. Neat book on dogs ( just mutts ) short stories of diff dogs & the jobs they did. Dogs are the best, wouldn't be with out one!!! Bill out πŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸΎπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Could be Lyme disease especially if accompanied by loss of appetite and low grade fever

I vote for Lyme's also... can we get an update to see how the dog is coming ?


If a good dog will last 15 years.... and a pick up will last you 10 years... then, by my math... I'm only good for three more trucks and two more dogs before I'm done.
