Our 11 week old Boston Terrier / Pug Mix is limping, I notice that today, and I touched his legs and one leg is like a the bone is misplaced, do some one has a idea what that could be? We never had a dog before, and I have no idea how that could happen? Please help me? Do you think his knee is collapsed and how much will a surgery be? Thank you!
He needs a vet ASAP. If the bone is displaced, just go to your vet, don't worry about an appt. It is probably broken and needs casted.
When My little girl broke her leg, it was only about $150 for the cast and x-ray. Surgery could cost hunderds, but you can let the dog live in that much pain. I am afriad to know how long you have let this go.
Limping and bone looks displaced? This is a no brainer...a vet, immediately! It is cruel to make him stay in pain while you dwell over what the vet will charge. he may only need a simple cast, not surgery, may be a bone growth, injury, anything....he needs vet care. Once the vet treats him and his pain, you can move onto what it will require and cost.
It sounds like your puppy has a luxating patella, which is common in both breeds. The good news is that if you take him in to the vet immediately, he willl give him medication to help with the pain, and tell you if this is a serious condition, or one that the pup may outgrow. Sometimes putting the pup on strict rest works. The only way to find out for sure what his condition is though is to take him to the vet immediately. Putting it off could make it worse, plus it's very painful. Good luck with him, and in the meantime, keep him fairly immobile.
My 5 year old Boston, Buster had luxating patella in both of his hind legs. His case was due to the fact that he was a "Puppy Mill" puppy. I had no clue and thought he came from a reputable breeder. He had a grade 3 in his left leg and grade 4 in his right hind leg. He had to have surgery on both as he is a HUGE Boston....He weighs 21 lbs. If that is the case with your puppy and needs the surgery I highly recommend it but only with a specialist with plenty of experience. Buster is a happy healthy little boy today and out runs and jumps the Jack Russells at our barn. Good luck!
