Hello! I am new to the forum. I have a male 5 month old Great Dane puppy named Dexter. He hurt his back leg 6 days ago while playing with our English bulldog. We took him to the emergency vet that night because he wasn't putting weight on the leg. The vet recommended 7-10 days crate rest and taking him to go out on a leash. They also put him on Rimadyl. We have been doing this (which is extremely hard keeping a 5 mth puppy still). He is still limping so Tuesday the vet is going to sedate him and take x-rays. Any thoughts on what could be going on while we wait for Tuesday to come? We are worried about a growth plate injury. Has anyone has a similar experience?
