2yr old rottie bitch limping

I'm starting to worry about my baby girl shilah who is now 2.

She has always jumped up a lot but I make her get down as I know it's not good for the young bones.

But when she's been lay in her bed a while she gets up very stiffly and limps. I have a 9yr old also and she has never done this.

Please help. Thank you xx








Hi Ali
This isn't normal for a two year old. If she were younger it could possibly be Panosteitis, but unlikely at two years of age.

Rottweilers are of course at risk of hip dysplasia, and the symptoms of this are fairly specific... you can learn more about this here - Canine Hip Dysplasia.

Generalized stiffness could signal early hip problems, but it could also be arthritic type changes or inflammation.

I can only recommend that you get her to your veterinarian for a check up and discuss the limping and stiffness she is experiencing. Your vet will be able to make any diagnostic tests he thinks are necessary and then suggest treatment (if any is necessary).

I wish I could help more, but this sort of situation needs professional evaluation. I wish you the very best of luck and hope that she is doing much better soon.

Delilah started to limp and then I noticed a knot forming on her ankle. Took the vet 3 months to diagnose that she fractured her hock. Now instead of just pins, she had to have a plate because things grew wrong. No longer our vet now. But Delilah jumped around alot too. They determined she must have just landed wrong. Make sure you don't notice any swelling, but take my word for it, get her to the vet and be vigilant.
