I have an exteremely athletic 8 month old female GWP. She is showing a lot of promise as an all rounder. When I tell her its play time, she takes off like a lunatic doing all that pup stuff; jumping over logs, embankments and generally being very boisterous. Recently, I have noticed that she pulls up with a sore right shoulder after these episodes. I've had her to the local greyhound massure who tells me this is normal with young dogs. Has anyone else had similar experience? Question

Hi,

My 14 month old female has the same problem after she has been playing too hard. I have had her to the doggy massage therapist, that seems to help. It is on her right side. I have found that by giving her baby asprin, she does much better.

The vet said she would eventually outgrow this problem.

I had a 7-month old pup with the same problem. I was hunting with a vet and he told me to have her x-rayed for OCD. After $700 and 3 months recovery (the whole hunting season), she was as good as new.
