Cant jump

my jack russel (cross with patterdale) has recently started to struggle jumping on the bed and going upstairs.


He can do it but recently barks to tell you to lift him up he is 8/9 years old andfir and healthy.


No obvious signs of an injury, he is off to vets today....but any ideas what could be wrong...

pulled muscle
or something worse

hopefully nothing serious that medication cant sort....

Jack Russell trouble jumping
by: Dave

Is everything ok with your Jack? It sounds to me like it could possible be arthritis. Hopefully it's not some kind of sprain though.
If it's arthritis then fish oil and anti inflammatories can help.
