All in all, I still have no idea what caused the lameness a few weeks ago. I still believe it was the carpal joint since I could get a pain response to flexing it, but it is unlikely it is due to her arthritis alone. It was acute and could be as simple as twisting the carpal joint and causing a flair up. We are not sure if the shoulder is related or incidental. It probably was not the cause of the recent lameness since Seven was lame on tight left turns and the shoulder would actually have problems on tight right turns. And other than in the last month, Seven has been sound as a dollar for 2 years. She has never had any apparent problems so maybe the shoulder happened a long time ago in her other life.
