I have a barely 2 year old saint bernard. Just today he trys to get up and he can barely do it.. its like his back legs wont work. I thought he was too young for hip dysplaica. Also he has been outside more often lately since we have been doing like spring cleaning. Is it possible him laying on the cold dirt or ground is affecting his hips? I cant take him to the vet until the weekend. He has all his shots and he has not shown any signs his hips were bothering him up until about 30 minutes ago. Thank you!
i will take him to the vet if he doesnt get better in a few days. He does not seem to be in any pain bu ti will watch him very closely. Than kyou for all your help.
also we got him for a very good breeder.. i will call them and let them know and see if they have had any issues with any other of their pups. And yes he plays very hard with our other saint.. so maybe he got gurt??
this is for BYB shealter death... yes this is the dog i bred with my female not on purpose.. we had family take the pups so they were not sold. You are really ridiculous.. i happen to work for an animal shelter and i know about bad people and bad breeders.. so i do not need your advice.. so BUTT OUT! I just spoke with our vet and he said to bring him in if it doesnt get better in a couple days. He thinks it might be from them paying so much. Our dog came with a heath guarantee and our breeder is a top breeder. He had an issue with his front leg awhile back and the vet said it was growing issues. That went away.. he is over 185 lbs so its very possible he is having growing issues.. why dont you go bother someone else.. we dont need your negativity here..
thank you to everyone with postive advice and info. Its very much appreciated.
