Dislocated Shoulder?

Postby Chrissy816 » Thu Jul 22, 2021 8:59 am

Hi there, I had posted previously about my beardie getting stepped on in his upper body.. I brought him to the vet and they did X-rays which showed no broken bones and she mentioned he was walking fine. The next morning he wasn’t using his front leg at all. 4 days later and he’s still not using it. The doctor said I can bring him back in or send out his X-ray to verify that there’s no breaks. But since he was using it that night and stopped the next day could it just be sore? He’s on pain meds.. also I’ve seen him digging with it at bedtime so could it be dislocated but also still be able to dig with it? Not sure the next steps.. thanks for your help.

Hello,

Sorry he is still having some trouble! How is he doing today?
Yes, they can definitely get a sore muscle, or bruised from being stepped on, etc. Did the
vet think that he might have an injury but not necessarily any broken bones?
It does take some time when they have some type of injury so give him some time.
Has he eaten anything today?

Hi Tracie,

I was chatting with you on my other thread about Stew. He’s doing ok but still not using his arm. I haven’t heard back from the doctor after sending the video to see if she thinks he’s just babying it or if it can be dislocated. Thankfully the X-ray looked good at that time but I hate not knowing if he’s going to be able to use it. I’m still trying to figure out how to take his big rock out and replace it with something lower but still get him close enough to his lights. He’s eating if I put him in front of it so that’s good! I’m going to post a video of him so let me know what you think! Maybe I’ll post it on my other thread too if anyone else has an idea.

Hello,

How is your boy doing? Interesting, something is definitely going on there, as he isn't using
his arm. Does he pull back if you try to touch or move it?
It doesn't appear swollen but it obviously is hurting or bothering him if he isn't willing to use it.
Did he give you any type of pain killer for it, or not? You could try using some liquid serrapeptase
for help with pain & swelling. I carry it on my online store, if you wanted to try it.

Let us know how Stew is doing.

Hi Tracie! He’s doing ok.. he’s still eating and I’m trying to keep him quiet so I hope that’s helping. I tried to give him a bath because he hadn’t pooped either but he didn’t use it much there either. He doesn’t seem to mind when we touch it to see if it bothers him but he is on pain medicine. Maybe he just needs more time to heal and thankfully they gabe him 2 weeks of pain medicine. What kinds of things are in your store? Thanks for checking in on Stew!
