Last Thursday, Nicky started to limp, favoring his front left leg. It started out sort of intermittently, only when he first woke up and walked on it. By Saturday he wasn't putting much weight on the leg. So we took him in to the vet who looked at him and felt the issue was in his shoulder, so she took some x-rays and found he had a bit of bone or cartilage in one of his tendons so wanted a consult with a specialist. The specialist saw him yesterday and did his own exam, he felt that the bit of bone has been there for quite awhile and though may be causing his discomfort it seemed he was actually much more tender in his neck and had the symptoms of some disc pain. So he has been prescribed rest, anti-inflamatories, and a harness for walking.
So Nicky is trading in his collar.
And sporting a new harness.
Nicky now has a Wags, Wiggles, and Whiskers Freedom Harness thanks to his favorite training instructor, Nancy, who always has an assortment of sizes and colors available. It has a front and rear clip and is a no pull harness though he really doesn't pull. It does have nice soft velvet for the strap that goes around his chest, just behind his legs. So far he is liking it.
