My AMSTAFF Left leg limp after rest

My Baby girl Sasha is almost 3 and after she lays for a period of time her left leg is pulled up when she walks and it takes 30 minutes or more before she is walking on it. She mainly sleeps on her left side and it almost seems as thought it has fallin asleep. Any one else have this issue or an idea what it might be.. Been to vet and they gave her pain meds which made her worse .

Question 8 1/2 yr old Pitbull

She has been going through a phase since the beginning of Spring where she would vomit about 1/2 hour to 1 hour after eating. We changed from Beneful (where we read dog owners had problems of sickness due to this brand) to Blue Mountain dog food, buying a new dog bowl to slow down her eating. With the dog food transition, we added rice which seemed to do well. We stopped the rice after 5 days and now is strictly on Blue Mountain. No problems for 7 days. Last night and today she vomited in the same fashion as with the Beneful. We will be going back to cutting back the quantity.

We live in the country, we walk her on a leash daily twice a day sometimes three times. She is not exposed to other dogs but to walk by them. She does eat grass. She will eat goose fecal matter if she comes upon it at our pond until we can stop her. Her stool is good. She appears to have allergies, evidenced by her sneezing and her eyes water some. Her energy is good, slowing down more than a year ago. She is indoors unless we are outside with her.

This is our son's dog and we do not know just what shots she has been given but don't believe she has had any for awhile.

It sounds like a trip to the vet is needed. If you don't know what vet your son took her to, then pick a vet and have her seen. It could be any number of things. Please keep us updated.

Ok I need help... My male pit is 10 years old he has been very healthy until a week ago. He threw up during the night and since then I noticed he was straining to poop. When he would go it was just little spots of soft green yellowish with some mucus. (gross i know sorry) I took him to the vet that morning and he did xrays to rule out a blockage. Gave him meds probiotics and said he thought it was colitis. The thing is he will drink no vomiting, he refuses to eat. I have tried everything I mean everything. He is straining to poop. I took him back yesterday (been 5 days) He has lost 6 lbs. Im so worried. At times I can get him to eat like peanut butter on bread, and two days ago he ate some fish. He is so tired no sign of dehydration and I have bought food I know he loves. Any idea of what might be going on? I love my boy and just want him to eat!!! I will not watch him starve himself.
Last year we lost our other male to cancer and that was so terrible. Dont want to lose him too....
Thanks for any suggestions or anyone else that may have had the same problem just out of the blue....
p.s the vet has ran numerous tests, lyme disease, heart worm, worm infestations, says his heart is good, lungs, eyes ears all wonderful??? At a loss....

Get a second opinion from a different vet. Really sounds like something more serious is going on. Please keep us updated.

I know that you can give your pups vitamins (though I don't know which exact ones) that help strengthen bones and joints to help things like hip dysplasia and arthritis. I get all my stuff on a site online and I know they have a bunch there!

My boy is 7yrs old and has the same problem thats started about a month ago. Its always his right front paw. He sleeps on his right side almost all the time. I refuse to give him meds because of past experiences. He is very active and still has all his muscle mass and has no problem eating. He doesnt seem to be in pain. I maggage his whole leg and seems to make it feel better. Any suggestions besides pain meds?
