Hi Hogmeister,

One of ours had a very subtle limp a while ago. I thought that he was ok, but then he turned up on camera one evening barely able to walk. Thankfully I spotted him in the garden the following day just before he was about to disappear into the undergrowth. The vets treated him, but it was too late, he had a massive infection, probably caused by a thorn or similar. I would keep a very close eye on him just in case; they can go downhill very quickly, better to be safe than sorry.
