Several years ago, my cocker spaniel, now 10 yrs old, started acting strange, like she was hurting in some way. She wouldn't jump up on the couch or anything else with my husband or I and she had stopped scratching after she relieved herself, which she almost always does. When I took her to the vet, he said she may have a degenerative disk and sent us home with a prescription for steroids. The steroids worked, but she gained almost 2 lbs in only 10 days while taking the steroid. I thought that was a lot for a dog normally weighs about 30 lbs. She has had recurrences of this behavior and we have not taken her back to the vet in favor of a wait and see approach and she always gets over it in a few days. Today, she started limping and at times, not walking, on her back left leg. Might something like Promaxol help her?
