I have a 7 yr old male (strictly indoors) that began limping about a month ago. He was crying and acted like he had hurt his leg. Immediately took him to the vet and they did bloodwork and x rays and all that and found nothing wrong. Said he was very healthy..no bone trauma sign or arthritis or anything and concluded it was a sprain. Gave him a steroid injection and tramadol for pain to be given at home for a week. Seemed to get better but is now limping again about 50% of the time. Acts like he feels fine and isn't in pain..just the limping. It's the back left leg. Any thoughts on this? I'd like to take him back to the vet (a different one) but really can't afford another $400 vet bill! Thanks so much!
