Common Questions and Answers about Knee problems in poodles


902589 tn?1268148853 Sorry, i'm not too fond of poodles, they're cute but my aunt's poodles ruined it for me. She let them run around crazily and treated them like spoiled children and they barked excessively :( She never tried to train them at all. It's so hard finding a good breed for us.
Avatar f tn Can anyone tell me if this is common in old dogs or just poodles? Is there anything that I can do?
18840190 tn?1468675333 s very common for skin conditions to go hand in hand with other problems, such as allergies, endocrine (hormonal) disorders or immune-mediated disorders. If antibacterials did not work then it could be that it's something that is immune-mediated, and these types of conditions are often very difficult to get a handle on.
Avatar f tn for about 2wks now my right knee has been giving me problems in 33 years old and im on high blood pressure meds and the reason unknown why i have it and my ?
Avatar f tn leg weakness (causes my walking to be more of a waddle) - numbness - calluses - knee problems (due to the weakness which would cause more pressure to the knees.) That's my theory but from the neuro's mind I don't have no problem even though he was the one that noticed the weakness.:( Sorry for the vent. Just had to get it out!!

Avatar f tn Wrap the knee with ace bandage or black knee support until u can get to the doc. does your knee crack? Take ibuprofen as directed for swelling. Hope you can get to the ER or doc soon.
Avatar m tn It's possible that it caused the problems in your left knee, but it's also possible that the cartilage tore for other reasons, like overuse or aging. Did you do physical therapy after you have your surgery? Why have you needed to favor your right knee all this time?
Avatar m tn The pain occurs directly behind her left knee, and sometimes on the front left side of the knee. I can easily feel a pop in the front left side of the knee when her leg is extended. When she went to physical therapy, the physical therapist pressed on her knee several times in different locations and also extended and contracted her leg to see if there was any pain, but she felt no pain. Her physical therapist said that her mechanics are off.
Avatar n tn I had the3 same problem, and still doe, I have had 2 total knee replacements on the same knee. I am in terrible pain. the Dr's threw up their hands and said I have never seen a knee like your and to be honest I dont know wjhat to do. So he put me on Oxycotin 40's 3 times a tday. The pain is unbearable.
Avatar f tn When I was a freshman in highschool I had seen a Doctor about my knee problem, and was tolded that my knee caps were making new knee jionts by themselves. They had done surgery on my right knee. I was wondering what the medical name was for this type of knee problem.
740456 tn?1260449809 LOL! Good for you! If you only want to groom your parent's poodles, any groomer should be able to show you how. What IS difficult in the life of a groomer is knowing the proper cuts and techniques for a multitude of dog breeds. You're also expected to know how express anal glands and trim nails. Some fun, eh?!
Avatar n tn s thyroid is down, his cortisone levels low, his testosterone levels low and his growth hormone levels high. Taps of his knee removed up to 500 cc of fluid, but no evidence of anything specifically wrong inside the knee, just that it was being damaged. He looked gaunt and unhealthy. 1. what hormonal problem could be causing these symptoms? 2. Why would joint damage be associated with rapid growth and low testosterone levels?
367994 tn?1304953593 m a dog lover so I can relate to people who have a dog as a pet and possible medical problems with their animal and the distress that can cause. We lost lost our pom a few months ago...died in her sleep. It is an agonizing experience to lift a lifeless body that had been so full of life the day before. It is something that stays with a person for a long time.
1148201 tn?1262165258 I was in a motor cycle crash a year and a half ago and due to other problems that have been resolved they can now fix my knee. After a MRI they have found that I have only MCL in my left knee in tact and need to have a operation to fix this. I have found many people with ACL tears on you tube but can't find info on the problems I have in my knee.
Avatar f tn I am sorry about your knee problems. I too have knee problems which were made worse by physical therapy. The one thing I have found that helps me is a good chiropractor treating my knee. Since you are on maternity leave I suggest that you also may want to find a good chiropractor to also treat your back.
497951 tn?1209829733 I have knee problems and will most likely need a knee replacement on my right knee eventually. Also, I have heard the excuse about *scar tissue.* I had carpal tunnel surgery on my right wrist in Oct. 2007, and it still bothers me and the doctor blamed it on scar tissue. I don't know. I'll be honest, I don't really know what to tell you. I have a lot of joint and muscle pain and other problems with blood pressure, cholesterol, etc.
Avatar n tn If it's hip displaysia, and that does seem to be the problem, there isn't much to be done except add anti-inflammatory meds - like the cortisone (steroids) your vet prescribed. The unknown infection has me concerned. Did your vet do any urinalysis to look for kidney or bladder problems? Sometimes a urinary tract problem will show up as pain in rear end, so that's one more thing I'd pursue. If your vet has truly given up, I'd definitely seek a second opinion.
Avatar n tn MRI---all ligaments etc...are good. Had no problems with my knee until this fall in early January. I fell directly on my knee, tore pants and the skin off my knee. About 8 hours after the fall I went to do a complete squat (to the floor) and it took my breath away. I have difficulty kneeling on it and squatting and getting back up. Bending knee to put pants on is not comfortable.
