Question: Rami developed a limp with his front right leg in early September. Our vet and an orthopedic specialist have not been able to find any injury. He is very defensive about his paw and rests the leg whenever possible. Acupuncture?
There are many ways to approach this problem. Since an orthopedic specialist has been unable to help, I would advise starting a program of either homeopathy, Western supplements, or using Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (diet, herbs and/or acupuncture). What is your dog’s diet? Any favorite treats? Is he worse at any certain times, or in the cold? What is his overall demeanor? Is he outgoing, introverted, happy or shy? All of these “constitutional” individualities can provide clues to a holistic vet for helping your dog.
