PostSubject: **UPDATED** Diesel Swollen Leg - Hock   Thu 04 May 2017, 9:24 am

Poor Diesel - I am thinking this could be the onset of arthritis, although I would rather the swelling he is having investigated today is nothing more than a knock to the leg.

Not sure if you can make it out on these pics, this morning though, the swelling had reduced quite a lot









Will update you as soon as I hear back from the xrays


*********************************************************************************
UPDATE

The vet, Hugo rang me earlier, they have taken xrays and fluid sample of the hock joint, there are signs of arthritis in the joint - but the analysis of the fluid will determine if other causes are present (takes 7 days)

The lump and his leg has been biopsied, again 7 days for the results.

We did ask them to check Diesels prostate gland and he does sometime dribble after having a wee. The vets has confirmed an enlarged prostate - Benign - so not cancer, but Diesel will need castrating to allow the prostrate to shrink.

Will update you again once I collect Diesel this evening xx

Poor Diesel - hope his leg settles OK and all the test point to a good outcome in the longer term.

Thanks everyone.

Results came back on Friday as follows

Lump on hind leg is cancerous, so that will be removed this Thursday along with the castration.

Swollen Hock - thankfully no infection or cancer, so it is arthritis, we are discussing the treatment for thi on Thursday too

Will keep you all updated xx
