    DefaultJust got a call from the vet.......

    And heard this: "From what we can see, there do not appear to be any lesions at all..."

    So to back up a little, Baloo had both elbows and shoulders x-rayed this morning (due to him limping over the last few days), as well as his hips (just cause he was under, so why not? :P) and according to the vets at the clinic, they all look great!!

    The x-rays are being sent to Guelph for a more in-depth evaluation, so really it is a little early for celebration. BUT, I have been sitting here having horrid visions of them calling and telling me he has advanced joint disease of some kind, and he'll never lead a normal life..... :-\

    **WHEW**. For now. :P

    Still have to figure out why he continues to limp. But I have more hope now that it's just a sprain or something, and eventually he'll be good as new.

    I know that at 7 months, even with clean x-rays there is no guarantee that he won't ever suffer from ED or HD, but at least for the time being I can stop worrying so much. Still have to get through the radiologists evaluation, but at least there is hope.

    Thanks for the "JL well wishes" power. I'll definitely be paying it forward.

    Glad to hear that nothing was seen on the xrays. I'm sure you got the same "it may just be to early to see" speech that we got, just enough to keep that worry in the back of your mind. Here's hoping that Baloo and BJ are just big, clumsy boys who grow up to be big, graceful dogs (and keep their mommas out of the vets offices so often)!

    Here's hoping that there isn't an OCD lesion in his shoulder...and it's just growing pains.

    Super happy Baloo's pics look good. Some growing pains would be the best diagnosis. Glad that what you are learning is coming back positive and the thoughts are being put away.

    Go Baloo! No more limping, it makes mommy worried.

    That sounds great! Now, just keep him quiet for a couple of weeks at least until he stops limping.
