Old Dog with lame hind legHello I hope someone can enligten as to how to resolve this problem with my beloved pet, I am at my whits end. For the last 8 months or so my Dog has had trouble standing on her left sided hind leg. When she wakes in the morning she hops about on three legs, she daren't put her hind leg down as it is so painful. She carries her leg like this for a long time until eventually she will walk it on it but putting her foot fully down. Eventually she is a able to walk on it but only for a couple of hours until she lies down and then the process begins when rising. She also sometimes suddenly sits down through weakness and then eventually hops back up. She is a sweet dog, very sociable and gentle 'Miniature Shnauzer' the vets have discovered she has Arthritis in her lower base spine and some slight swelling in her knee ligament, she also has a lot of muscle wastage in her leg and around her abdomen and I can feel her spine, she is also unsteady and weak. She also had a fall on my slippy stone floor on quite a few occasions so I think this may have come from some trauma she sustained a while ago. For some peculiar reason she always lies on her painful side, very unusual. I have used 'Byronia' 30c not to sure how often I should give her this but, so far no difference, still limping. She has also had 'Ruta Grav' 200c 'Arnica' 6c and 200c and also 'Rhus Tox' 200c. Please can someone help as I'm not sure how many times these remedys should be given. I have given them all individually only once per day, for one day only. The only option I have left is alopathic 'Metacam' from my vet which recently caused her to have pancreatitis and enteritis which made her very poorly. She is presently taking 'Tramadol' to ease her pain. Please help.
