I have a 12 week old border collie puppy that has been limping on her front leg for almost 4 weeks now. She's weight bearing on the leg, no obvious pain, swelling or stiffness when you feel down the leg and do a flexion test. Due to lockdown the first time she could be physically examined by the vet was a week ago when she had her 2nd vaccination. He thought that she had a sprain/strain but as she's so high energy, she just wasn't giving it a chance to heal. He has given us metacam and told us to cage rest her for a month. We're trying our best to only let her out on short garden walks on the lead, she's understandably very hyper when we get her out so although we try and stop it she is still trying to run, jump mad play. Overall her activity levels are down 90%. The cage rest is really tough on us all and I'm a bit disheartened because it's been a week and I'm not seeing any improvement. Is this normal? Should I be giving metacam at a different time of day? Icing the leg? Or what else could it be if not a sprain/strain?
