One thought on “Stiffness Dog 1-5 Years Not Sick

  1. Joe Soper says:

    My 2-year old Golden Retriever will occasionally rise stiffly from a nap on the floor and will walk a few steps before resuming a ‘normal’ gait.

    This is a conundrum as Caramia is a very active dog who runs with abandon every day. We also hiked in the Green Mountains all summer and swam almost every day with absolutely no issues during or after an outing.

    Thank you, in advance, for your interest in our ‘issue’.
