Well, Cecil has developed a lump or knot on her left front leg in an area I would liken to her wrist. She does not limp or favor the leg; however if you touch the lump she winces. I took her to the vet yesterday and she got X-rayed. Sure enough it's right on top of a joint, part has hardened and part still a little soft. The vet said she was looking at an athelete. Her conformation was perfect and she felt this was caused by her jumping, running stuff. She had never seen this or in this position on a dog. She has seen it on a horse and a person, but not on a dog. She put her on a med for both pain and anti-inflamatory. She is doing research and calling concerning this. Meanwhile, my lively Cecil is supposed to now walk only on the grass and no really long walks. Anyone heard about anything like this?
