    our 2 yo choc lab was diagnosed with pancreitis on 12/29. evidently we nearly lost him. weight loss was very quick.the vet told his owner he lost approx 30% of his weight. anyway, since then he acts like an old man when he gets up, and has some limping. after he warms up he has a healthy gait. he is putting on weight well, but the limping is a concern.
    is it just muscle wasting, a coincidental onset of dysplacia, or something else?
    he has nearly the same energy as before. if i don't want to play ball, he barks at me and even gives me small love nips:supergrin: hilarious
    thanks in advance
