It doesn't surprise me in the least that PETA euthanizes more than 90% of the animals surrendered to them - their main mission is to not have any animals owned by anyone, whether that be livestock in...

The "growing pain" condition that your vet mentioned is called panosteitis. The bones themselves actually become inflamed and causes a limp. In...

I would suggest an orthopedic vet - sometimes bone issues are hard for general practice vets to recognize, especially if it's a rare disorder.
