I have a female St.Bernard. She is three and half years old and I have had her since she was six weeks old. About five weeks ago she started to limp on her right hind leg. There were no cuts or swelling. I took her to the vet who prescribed an anti inflammatory as he could not see anything wrong.  Once the medication was finished I gave her a few more days but she continued to limp.  I made another appointment at which time he did xrays.  He noticed nothing wrong, she had no broken or cracked bones and her hip sockets were deep and clean.  He prescribed another anti inflammatory but she still continues to limp.  Has anybody ever had this type of problem in the past?  I am not sure what to do next.

Was your Saint checked for hip displasia?

Have the vet take more xrays and submit them to OFA (Orthopedic foundation for animals). If hip dysplasia is ruled out, I'd have her checked for Lyme disease.
