Another Lame Pig - Arthritis

Post by Jane » Tue Apr 22, 2008 10:09 am

I too have have a castrated male, and his sister, a week last Saturday Jim was lame on his left hind leg. The vet came out and we concluded that the pain was in his hip area, he had a finadyne injection and she left some finadyne paste. He was back to 100% until the paste ran out, then he gradually got worse until we were back to square one. I fetched him some more finadyne paste and he is ok again. Other than the lameness he is quite happy and eating well!

The vet is coming out again tomorrow, she suggested on the phone that it may be arthritis (he's nearly 2)! I was hoping it was just a trapped nerve or something like that. I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem, or any history of arthritis??

Thanks Jane :?
