My dog has carpal hyperextension from trauma. She has had X-rays at two different places and neither know what is wrong. I give her joint supplements but don’t know what else to do. Her extension isn’t the worst but a definite limp probably 30 degrees off what it should be. I came home one day and she had chewed threw our fence and got out. She was hopping on her leg and had 3 small distinct gashes that she still licks to this day even though it has heeled. It’s been about 6 or 7 months now. Surgery is too expensive from what I think and no vet around my area does arthrodesis surgery. She turned 4 in September. If I do nothing, in your opinion, will it get worse? Is there anything other than surgery that I could do? Is she prone to get arthritis at an early age? Someways she limps on it worse than others. I feel terrible and want expert advice.
