My boy, 3.5 yr old lab, had a injury to his hock area two weeks ago while training and the vet took x-rays, see the attached url. You can see the soft tissue swelling around the fibular tarsal bone and a small splinter of that bone. They, two different doctors, diagnosed it differently but neither was sure. They proscribed rest and a follow up exam. Im now scheduled to go to another Dr. next week and a possible MRI depending on what he thinks. Im wondering if any of you might have a thought on what his problem is.
He puts weight on it and will walk fairly normal but frequently will "tweak" it and it causes him pain. At rest it doesnt seem to bother him. His condition has not changed since it first happened.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts you might have.
