Dog Ailment Filter: Our 5-year old chow has developed an odd limp.
After lying down or resting, the dog limps heavily on her right hind paw. The limp eventually disappears as she keeps walking or running (completely gone by the end of the walk), but returns again after she's been lying down for a bit. I am aware that chows have weak hind legs, but that's the extent of my knowledge. We have an appointment with the vet in a couple of days, but I'm hoping someone can enlighten me in the meantime. Thanks in advance.
