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.

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Welcome. Good thoughts coming. I am sure if others agree, but I would rest him until you see the vet again.
