Unhappy Lucas hurt his kneee

I was petting Lucas near his back end and he yelped really loud, put his ears, back and jumped. It's his left knee....I felt that area again and again he yelped

He's been limping a little more on that side and I just noticed when he stands still he leans all his weight in the back on his right side I mean he is putting almost NO weight on that leg when standing still! When walking he kinda hops so there isn't much weight on it

I gave him an aspirin and am gonna have to see if the vet's open tomorrow.

I was thinking x-ray his knee to see what's going on.....what do you guy's think?

I'm sure the vet will say what they think. I just wonder what's wrong. I don't think it's the arthritis, especially since it's been bothering him a while. I hope it's nothing too bad!

Poor Lucas.

I'm not sure what you should do, go with your gut instinct for you... I hope it heals quickly for him!

He could've, he's usually left in my room when I'm gone, but sometimes he get's run of the house except the rooms and there are some slipery surfaces so it's possible.

That might be it..I know that if Lizzie slips it will hurt her for a few mins too...he may have just done it a little to hard!

Probably because there wasn't any punctures, were there? My dog did a four paw split on wood today. Maybe that happened? She was pretty sore.

well, he's been limping for about a week.....I thought it was just the arthritis making his knee stiff, but now I'm thinking something else.

Maybe he stretch a muscle? That would do it.
