    QuestionNew Member / Swollen leg

    Hi !

    Just want to introduce myself. I have a 5 year old Chocolate Lab named Fudge .

    I was searching for 'symptoms' and found your forum. Fudge has a markedly swollen patellar joint on the right rear leg. Bony in appearance and palpation, no tenderness, no pain, no limping....runs well; appetite and behavior normal.

    The vet put him on anti-inflammatory meds for 2 weeks, but no change. He'll have an x-ray a week from today.

    Any thoughts ??? I'll keep you informed on the results.....praying it isn't something 'bad'

    It would be very hard to tell without x-rays. I hope you get a positive diagnosis next week. Good thoughts for Fudge.

    Welcome. Good thoughts coming. I am sure if others agree, but I would rest him until you see the vet again.
