My Bichon is 5 years old. She is favoring her right rear leg, sometimes drawing it up and not using it at all, kind of hopping. We took her to the vet. He took xrays and found what he described as a torn muscle. Of course he gave her pain meds and tramadol. She has finished up the meds and she is still hopping. I cannot afford expensive surgury (which was NOT mentioned). Has anyone got any suggestions? She is the "baby" of our house. We want her not to hurt. She is not complaining of whining...just limping.
