Hi to everyone. I live in the UK and my Lab is called Prince, he is just over 7 years old. He is finding it difficult to get up and lay down and very stiff movements for about 1 minute, after that he seems fine and I cannot keep up with him walking and he can run and chase cats etc. He has been under the vet for about 3-4 weeks with a temperature but that appears ok now, he has been on anti inflams and anti biotics. Yesterday he had 3 x fatty lumps removed (he has suffered with these for most of his life) and his body x rayed at the same time. The vet showed me the pictures last night and he said they were the best joints/hips etc he had seen in a long long time, no problems what so ever. With the bill standing at £1250 at the moment (insurance I hope) has anyone else any other ideas on the bad getting up and laying down syndrome? Thank you.
