Dog question - limping
I have a golden retriever and he is overweight and is on meds for seizures. He recently started limping and I am thinking that it is arthritis. Do you think  that could be it?

Possibly, stress of extra weight on leg joints. Ask vet for diet plan and stick to it. No extra treats or leftovers. It may seem harsh but we can kill our pets with too much kindness ans love. The dog is not going to hate you just because you deny him/her treats. Gentle exercise will help with weight loss but should visit vet for advice

Yes that may be the cause but if I knew which leg was affected and a few more details I could offer specific suggestions. Feel free to contact our office if you'd like further help
Thank you
