Limping Jack
by: Shelley

Our female Jack was diagnosed with a luxating patella when she was a pup. It's where her knee moves out of place. It's a very common condition is JRT's. Once and awhile she limps but never seems to be in pain. She's still as fast as ever at the age of 8. I would just keep an eye on your lil one. Hopefully thing get better!

Jack Russell puppy limping in the morning
by: Anonymous

If you continue to see a pattern of limping in the morning I would definitely take your Jack in to get an x-ray because it could be many things related to her foot. Even though the limp goes away after the morning, it could be something that could get worse if it's not addressed in a timely manner. It could be immune related, genetic or due to a trauma.

In the meantime I would make sure that your Jack is not doing much exercise (hard for a 5 month old!).

Hope everything is ok with your Jack. Let us know how it goes!
