Clicking shoulder

Species: dog | Category: medical-surgical | Submitted: 4 May 2009 12:28PM | viewed 4175 times
Q Christine asks about Goose (dog - Deerhound, M) :

My 8 month old deerhound has a 'clicking' shoulder joint when he fast trots. There is no lameness, swelling or pain. He collided with a shrub 6 weeks ago and I noticed the clicking a week or so later (may not be related). What could the problem be please? I am restricting exercise as much as is humanely possible!

Q Our vet says: Clicking joints usually mean that they are not moving as smoothly as they should. In young dogs it is important to get this type of thing checked because if there is a real problem which is left untreated arthritis could develop later.
